I have moved house many times over the past…well, I’ve moved a lot since I moved away from home. As a result I have lots of out-of-date business cards. I’ve kept them, like you do, knowing that one day I’ll ‘need’ them for something. Only I had no idea what I could do with old business cards. And then it hit me. I’m going to use them for a business card book. Yes, a business card book – that’s what I’ll call it. Basically I’ll just cover a card with some paper and decorate with various things – so this is another recycling opportunity – and then punch a hole and place onto a book ring. I have probably hundreds of these cards, so this is going to be one of these life-long projects.

The thing is, I like projects like this. I can use whatever I have left over from other projects, things I’ve kept or found, and perhaps I can even test any little ideas I get. So far everything I’ve used are from my box of bits.

So, this is the start.

Easter owls

Easter owls? It’s rather catchy, is it not? I guess this is my idea of Easter chicks. The owls were stamped and coloured and then cut out. The legs were bent from paper clips and taped to the back.

Happy Easter!

Here is my altered calendar page for April. If you haven’t seen the previous ones, here is March’s, February’s and January’s. Click the image for a bigger one.

I made two more pages for my ‘art book’. Both pages were first coloured with a brayer and Distress Inks. I love the mottled background it gives.

I’m totally in the middle of wasting some time…

Another journal page here. I don’t really have anything to add, except that the text is so true.
