I have 4 scrap boxes full of pieces cut, printed, colored, stamped ... you name it, it's probably in there. So I decided to make a card using only items from these boxes. At some point, they either have to get used or get tossed and since I can't bring myself to toss any craft items ... I guess I better get busy using them up.
The blue and white cardstock pieces were already cut to the right size ~ how often does THAT happen, right? I also found the embossed the brick piece, although I don't remember what I was going to use it for originally.
The digi is from Doodle Pantry ~ Summer Song Birdies. The pre-colored printed image and sentiment were in my "box." Once I die-cut the image, I felt I had to add water to the bottom of the picture. Using Copics, I first extended the pylons, then added blue for the water. The blue was light enough that you can actually see the extended pylons. So, I'd love to say I planned it that way ... but I didn't. It looks like a reflection in the water (looks real good in person), which just "happened."
I wrote "Girls..." in white marker pen hoping it would look like graffiti. I guess you never have to worry about me defacing a building, since my attempt at graffiti is nothing spectacular.
Everything on this card were pieces left over from other projects, or projects that never got started. And while I used a lot of "pieces," the boxes are still full. I guess I'd better get to making a few more cards.
