I love school supplies. I still get a rush every August when school supply sales are announced. New paper waiting to be filled with ideas. Pencils begging to be sharpened. And the best - a new box of crayons. Nothing fancy, just a basic box of 24 with primary colors, secondary colors and a few tertiary thrown in for good measure. Oh, yeah!
- Card (folded) - I chose a light blue-grey card, 5" x 5"
- Glue Stick
- White card stock
- Green card stock
- Dull pencil
- Fiskars® Lever Punch - small butterfly
- Fiskars® Lever Punch - medium scalloped circle
- Scissors (I used my Wescott Titanium Bonded® pair.)
Select a range of light colors. Mine were on the warm side, so yellows, pinks, oranges, and reds. Color in a section of the white card stock. I chose to color randomly, but you can do stripes if you wish.
Arrange the stems, leaves and flower heads on the paper. Once you have settled on the placement, glue them into place using your gluestick.
A charming card reminiscent of encaustic painting with nearly limitless color possibilites!
