Purse Art

My to-do list for some time has included getting caught up on art card assignments for my Documented Life planner.  I liked the assignment for the first week in November - Add something from the bottom of your purse.  I don't have a lot of junk in my purse, but I almost always have scraps of lists..  I also found a bandaid, but I ended up not using that (this time).

I tore my lists into strips and collaged them to a piece of file folder that already had some paint on one end.  The file folder piece was a little narrow, so I painted an ATC and attached the file folder to it.
 I added a little stamping, stenciling, and doodling, and stitched around the file folder part.
 I added a little more collage

 I made a vinyl pocket that is big enough to hold several cards, and sewed it a page made from free art from Carolyn Dube (she frequently has her Art Sparks downloads available for free.  I always download them but never know what I'll do with them.  But they are on my computer when I need something quick to use.)
I had a lot of fun and like all the color I ended up with.

Fabulous! It makes me happy to look at it. Love the texture and the color. And of course the heart is great. The dark clock grounds the whole thing. And nice touch with the sewing.

I love the card. I went through a stage of "art burnout" and donated most of my supplies to a friend's granddaughter. Now I'm getting that urge once again to art...so I must start all over with the purchase of paints, stamps, etc. :)
