I’ve found a new use for my camera. It’s a fun way to document stuff I’m thinking about working on, or just simply thinking about, a seriously goofing off process I like to call stuffing. These are some papers I’ve been playing with for card making ideas. I love to spend quiet time studying colors and patterns. To the uninitiated, I appear to be basking in laziness, but really, I am hard at work tidying up the creative corners in my brain (after I’ve made a big mess of course, which is the critical first step).
Something magical happens when I print my vintage images on textured Bazzill paper. Aren’t these just the sweetest friends ever?
Try to find a little time this week to do some stuffing of your own. You don’t need anything special. Just small collections of stuff: buttons, fabric, photos, pens & pencils, yarn, kids’ artwork, books, food (try your spice cabinet!), nails and screws and junk—anything visual. It’s so good for you! This is something kids instinctively know. Just watch a couple of five year-olds sort your bottles of nail polish with delight. You don’t even need to make anything. Just pile together whatever makes your eyes happy.
