Something new

Here's a new little piece of mixed media art I made this morning.  I used the cover of a composition notebook as my base.  I was inspired to make this after watching a video by Maremi SmallArt.  She used packaging to make some tags and created beautiful works of art.  So I followed her lead and used notebook cover for my base and scrap paper for my background.  I was extremely excited to use for the first time IamRoses flowers.  I finally after all these years of crafting made myself order some of these beautiful flowers.  I forced myself to use them.  I love buying pretty Prima flowers and put them on a shelf never using them because they are so beautiful and I feel like I have to find the perfect project to use them on but never seem to find anything to justify using them on.  My New Years resolution is to start using my crafting supplies instead of creating a museum to my favorite things.  Does anyone else have this problem?  Anyway I love the way this turned out.  It felt good to get in the craft room and just create something today.  Hope everyone has a great day!!!  Go create something.
