Our task for this week was to gather all those pieces of loose paper: bills, brochures, cards, junk mail, pretty scraps ...
Now, what do we do with all that paper?
Option #1, the easy way out: buy a folder put everything in it. If you are feeling inspired you can organize the bills by service provider and date.
Option #2, for a fun weekend: get a manila box and go to town with acrylic paints, stencils and stamps.
Step 1: paint the manila box with a base layer. I used a soft yellow. When it´s dry, paint a second layer for a solid background.
Step 2: use stencils and a brayer to decorate with several designs/colours.
We can also take this project a step further and make a "vision box". If you´ve never heard of vision boards and are the reading type, check Christine Kane´s explanation of them. If you like the video learning experience, check out Jamie Ridler´s videos on the theme.
Here´s a quick one for your watching pleasure. :D
In easy words ~ because we are making our lives lighter, right? ~ get your favourite magazine/s, your "go to" cutting tools and a glue stick.
Get comfy, set your intention and start cutting. When you have enough images (that is pictures and words) glue them to your box.
Have a creative weekend!
I´m linking my painted box to "Paint Party Friday". Go visit other participants to be inspired!
