So here is my Two for One LK-Inspired post for today :
For the Friday Prompt, LK encouraged us to dive into our hoard of goodies (you know you have one !!!) and use up something we have been holding onto for a special occasion or a particularly rainy day.
In my hoard file were some pieces of gorgeous "painted papers" I got from Anne Bagby when I went to the art retreat taught by her and Lynne Perrella in Mexico two years ago. Anne was very generous with her supplies and gave us all samples of these magnificent papers spray painted and stamped with her own carved stamps. They were thin and pliable, wonderful for collage as she used un-waxed deli paper as the base for her paint (still haven't found a source for this - she said Sam's Club carried it but I don't have a membership there). I still had a few pieces that I was holding to in my painted paper hoard.
What better time to use my treasures than when I want to show some love to a few of my friends. I used them to make these two cards :
The "grass" background is the painted papers from Anne. The stamp she used was inspired by Klimt's work - geometric shapes that are repeated over and over in details of his work. Isn't it gorgeous ? The flowers are made of some of my own painted papers as are the turquoise backgrounds.
Well now these treasures of mine will grace these cards going to a couple of my really good friends, offering up some spring time hope as the days slowly get longer and we awaken more and more from that long winter's nap !
And speaking of waking up, GET YOUR BOOGIE SHOES ON !!!!! Listen to this catchy, hip-inspiring song and get to wiggling, my friends ! Sing along too ! The chorus is easy to follow anyway !!!
