Hello Fellow Bloggettes!! (I don't have any male followers) I'm enjoying the last days of summer with my son before school starts. I hope you all are having a wonderful time as summer wraps up! I've made a little something to explain my Artful State Of Mind.

Scraps of Color is a great site with great challenges, especially for scrapbooking. I have done more scrapping since January, than I have the entire 5 years I was hoarding supplies!!
This week's challenge, for Technique Tuesday, was to combine at least 4 patterned paper and incorporate into a layout.
Now, this is not my thing, mixing lots of patterns, but I tried it. Now, I'm not on a design team, I don't work for any craft companies ... so when I list items at times that I've used - its only to share.
The papers are by Fancy Pants.
The letters are by Thickers
The *bling* is good ol' Stickles
The flowers are by Dear Lizzy

I am so hooked on making these little stamps! I accidentally broke one of my soft blocks, so I doodled a little something on it .. and made these cards for a challenge.
I didn't have enough black ribbon, so I used cardstock and vellum. The lettering on the vellum is from my printer. I use a heavier vellum, so it isn't all hung up when I try to print something.
I also don't have swirly bling, so I used stickles for the swirls.
The little beads are floral drops from the gardening section at TARGET...I colored them with some dark alcohol ink.
