Scenic Bits


     I’m so glad that this gorgeous image panel didn’t get thrown out!  I couldn’t find a nice fit for it when I made it but it works great now!  A friend of mine recently said, “It is amazing how we can utilize things that may have ended up in the bin when we use a fresh eye.”  Thanks, Paula!  That perfectly sums up what this Bits And Pieces utilization is all about.  A fresh eye and new perspective can make all the difference.

   A few points of interest: 

  • The image is on Watercolor Paper that was misted with water and sponges were used to “brush” on Classic inks
  • The grass is from the Inspired By Nature set that is, sadly, on the Retiring Stamps List and available only until May 31, 2012. 
  • The sentiment is found in the Loving Thoughts set which is in the Occasions Mini Catalog available until April 30, 2012.


     Remember, this is what I was picking my Bits And Pieces out of.  A daunting task to say the least but it has been so very rewarding.

     Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you’ve been inspired to step away and return with a fresh perspective :)
