Using Up the Left Overs

Susi's challenge at Art Journal Journey this month is collage-but NO faces, wings or leaves. I took advantage of the collage theme and created a page with some left overs. My background is some edge scraps of a Gelli print and some phone book scraps. Then I painted this and sprayed a little ink too. I then added some die cuts which I was using as masks on other projects and some left over die cut letters. Once the matte medium dried, I added a little decorating to my die cuts, and I did a bit of stamping, and I was done.
A quiet weekend at my house with the hubby home recouping from his heart surgery. I think I need to motivate myself to clean the house a little bit. Its easy to be lazy after all the running around while he was in the hospital.
I hope everyone has a great Saturday!

This is an incredible way to use up scraps AND old telephone book pages. Very impressive art and collage. Hope you are destressing and having a wonderful four day weekend.
