 ABANDON ART PROJECT
How to BLESS someone with your ART 

I love to make cards, tags, and other Paper Projects, 
However, I HAVE TOO MANY!!

So here is what I am doing and you can do it too!

ABANDON ART


 HERE IS WHAT I DO
1. Place the card, tag, etc. in a Zip Lock Back[off brand Zip Locks purchased at Dollar General]
2. For Cards, I include an envelope
3. I add my note  to the front as show in the photo
4. I keep a box of cards, tags in my car.

 I leave them at Dr. Office, church bathrooms, grocery store/craft store other businesses on a shelf.

When we went on vacation, I left them in different states at gas stations, restaurants, etc.
 
Here are the 2 stamps I put on the back of each card - and the Note goes in the front as shown in above photos. - I choose not to put my name on my cards or in the package, however, other people add their name and state.

I like this idea to help bless others & get these boxes of cards out of my craft room. After all, I am going to make more!

Blessings, Gail

Gelli Plate Card Tag

Howdy Crafters ~ I have set a goal to learn some new techniques this summer. I have already found one free on line class by Carolyn Dube for creating a Mix Medium Art Journal.

Earlier this week, I decided to find out what a Gelli Plate is used for since I won one months ago and just stashed in the draw. Well little did I know I could get messy and create some great backgrounds and art using this handy tool.

Therefore, I am creating a stack of Gelli Plate backgrounds ready to use in crafting.

Here is one I created today as I learn items finding all type of instructional art classes on line and taking notes! So much fun.

Thanks for dropping by and have a blessed week.
