"FORGET-ME-NOT...OR WILL I???"

As usual I forgot something. I meant to post pics of the cards I've mentioned on my previous entry but alas, I didn't, as usual. The only reason I don't forget my head everywhere it's because it's firmly attached to the rest of me!!!

So, without further ado, here is my collection of hand painted notecards called "Flower of the Month". They're all 5.5"X7" heavy cardstock adhered to various scrapbook papers by means of my handy dandy Xyron 900. I would've lost my mind if I had to use rubber cement. If you're into paper crafting or scrapbooking I highly recommend this machine. It's not expensive, doesn't require electricity or batteries and the various interchangeable cartridges are easy to change and use and are available in Permanent Adhesive, Laminate, Magnet and a few others. All I had to do was feed the scrapbook paper through it and voila! My paper was now self-adhesive. All in less than 10 seconds! Great for making all sorts of stickers as well.

Anyways, before y'all think I'm working for Xyron, allow me another minute to finish describing the note cards. As I was saying, they were painted with acrylic paints and embellished with a glitter. The flowers were painted on a plain white heavy cardstock, cut-out and attached to the stamens with pop-dots which gave a very nice 3-D effect. All cards come with a matching envelope and I'm planning on listing them on my Etsy store, sometime soon. Here they are (or you can check my Flickr Gallery at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jadefantasyart/sets/72157622255850497/

Hope you like my little creations. Cards are so much fun to make, almost as much fun as ATCs. BTW, if you like my Rainbow Girlz, I'm almost done with a new series of ACEOs done in the same style. Coming soon...

Much love,
Jade

Ah I see now. you are doing scrapbooking..except that you are painting the flowers.
Very nice.

Scrap booking is very popular...I must say I never did get into that unlike both my sisters...they love it. but they don't paint their own ..they just cut out papers.

Very nice work Jade.
