Met up with the owners from Foxy Fix. It was their first time at the stationary show as well. It is always great to meet someone that you tak with on the phone or via email.
I went to a few tourist spots in the evenings. I love New York City, the streets have their own song and everything is so vibrant. I always feel that I could move here and then I feel the crowds of people and realise I could never live there. Way too many people for me.
I have so many collage papers and images and when I have some free time I cut images out. I altered a small accordian file from the office suppy store to file my bits and pieces in.
I used my Gelli Plate along with stencils and Acrylic Paint on copy paper to make the backgrounds. I glued the background papers to the accordian file usng gel medium and then added a couple of layers of gel medium on top to protect it.
I glued on an image and some letter stickers and this makes a great file to keep small bits!
Here is a photo of the file opened. There are 13 tabs inside labeled.
Labels such as body parts, ocean life, heads, household, hats, etc make finding images a breeze
Here you can see some of my cut out images waiting to be filed
Before I get called out by those that know me, lol – I have hundreds of collage papers and bits and pieces. These are stored in plastic totes of which there are many!! This small file just holds all the cut out pieces.
