      Well? where do you find inspiration to create?
      For me, I can get inspired by something like this:

      1-24.jpg

      or this

      inspiration.jpg

      I was actually cleaning up, but…. couldn't resist. I immediately want to play when I see something like this.

      2-23.jpg

      So I cut some tags, and started to glue my scraps to it, using Multi Medium. Just randomly glued them down and added some pieces of washi tape and painters tape. When I was done, I gave it a coat of Multi medium and heat set it.

      3-23.jpg

      I cut off the acces (sp) and distressed my edges.

      4-23.jpg

      I scooped some Gesso on my tag and smeared it all out, using my spatula.

      5-21.jpg

      till it looked something like this.

      6-22.jpg

      Then I took a left over piece of a note card that came in the kit, and added some dots, using puffy paint. I also rubbed some puffy paint onto my tag.

      7-21.jpg

      Then I cut some gauze bandage and added some Gesso to the top of my tag, pressing the gauze into the gesso.

      8-21.jpg

      teared a piece of old bookpage and glued it to my tag using multi medium.

      9-21.jpg

      I wanted to raise the notecard so I cut some cardboard and added gesso to the edges. Glued it to the back of my notecard.

      10-17.jpg

      Glued the notecard in place and added a strip of paper. I also raised that one.

      11-20.jpg

      Tucked in a scrap of lace that I used on a earlier project. glued it in place using 3 in 1 Craft Glue (Beacon's)

      and here's what my final tag looks like:

      tin550.jpg

      and here's another one I quickly made out of scraps.

      black550.jpg

      Here's how I did this one.

      b1.jpg

      I started with misting my tag, (using a mix of Black Soot Distress-reinker and water in a mini mister)
      and flower and heat dried it.

      b2.jpg

      Distressed and inked the edges and glued this piece down. tucked in a piece of old bookpage at the bottom.

      b3.jpg

      Distressed and inked up the edges of the card, the paper strip and glued it, kinda ruffled onto my tag. also glued a tiny piece of bookpage at the left side.

      b4.jpg

      Made a bow from twine and glued it down with a flower on top.

      b5.jpg

      I took some sewing tread and folded it a couple of times double, then notted 2 velvet trinkets on it and with a stitch I attached them to the flower. finished it of with a pearl. I glued my flowers down and a metal key. Added some dots using liquid pearls. (these came in the French Quarter kit)

      Aren't they fun?! I still have to clean up tho….lol

      I hope you get some inspiration form this, and I challenge you, to just throw your scraps at your table, throw some embellies on it, some twine and lace and shake it up a little. THEN see how it falls down. Take a picture of it, and start to create with the picture in front of you… You will be amazed with what you come up with.

                        Whoa Paulien!!! Amazing!!You make it look so easy!!

                        "Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."
