Collage Fun


I recently cleaned and organized my studio and found that I was beginning to get overwhelmed with bits and pieces of paper everywhere. I have a habit of never throwing anything away and so I decided to try using some of the scraps to collage backgrounds for ATCs. Here are a few of the ones that I created, however, I still have a lot more bits and pieces of paper to use up! Thanks for stopping by my nest!

Take Care - Robin

Great idea Robin, I keep all my scraps in an open box that I keep beside me, so I need something I go through the box. Only thing is after a while you have too much right? It's the same with my printed collage sheets, I often give bits to my nieces to play with.
I sooooooo need to organise my space too :)

Great way to use what you already have. I'm all into that right now. I bet most of us could open a store with the supplies we have!

Thanks for stopping by this morning and commenting on my Grunge Paper flowers. I can see these becoming a new addiction???? :)
