Paper Flower Embellishments For Handmade Greeting Cards, Scrapbooking and Paper Crafts

Hand Stamped Flower Embellishments

I made these hand stamped paper flowers to use as embellishments on scrapbook layouts, mini books, and greeting cards. They serve the same purpose that Prima flowers do, but they don't cost as much. I wrote up a tutorial for how to make them; You can click here to see step by step instructions for making rubber stamped paper flower embellishments. They are easy and fun! Enjoy!

Thanks for dropping by. Hope you are having a lovely and creative day!

Solovay Gallery of Contemporary Art- Web Banner

I just created this web banner this morning. I did it for The Sampler but I think it will generally come in handy in other places too. I am STILL working on my web site,, and this will be a good addition to my link exchange page. Right now my site redirects to my ebay store but I am hoping to change that shortly. If you have a web site that relates to art, fashion, fabric, crafts or interior design in some way please let me know if you want to exchange links. I am working on my links pages right now.

Art Trading Cards Sent To The Sampler For March

This week I sent some Art Trading Cards to The Sampler...Goodness I hope the package reaches Marie on time. My first time contributing was for the Holiday Sampler in 2005 and it was soooooo much fun! The first time I wrapped them all up like little holiday presents. Well, I liked that idea so much that I decided to giftwrap them again this time...I used baby shower paper instead of holiday paper this time though. Not that I think the recipients are a bunch of babies! Haha! Not at all! But rather because I think the sampler crowd can appreciate such cuteness...the paper has little rubber duckies and stuffed animals on it. Lots of the Art Trading Cards I sent were done in spring colors. Hurry up spring! Just hurry up!

"Time Warp", An Original Painting on Canvas ~ Sold

It's been awhile since I made new spin art, but I haven't lost interest in spin paintings at all; I have just been overflowing with ideas for mixed media pieces. This is a new acrylic painting on stretched canvas with staple-free sides.

I love the versatility of this piece. It has a really groovy retro look and would look great with Danish Modern Furniture or Any of the Midcentury Modern classics- Knoll, Panton, Mies Van Der Rohe, Saarinen...OR it would also look great with Contemporary furniture...a leather couch...suede furniture...a platform bed...

Colors: Chocolate Brown; Drab Olive Green (Could also be described as Army Green or a Dark Sage Green- it is a really grayed down, brownish green color); Plum Purple; Beige; Khaki; Tan; Neutral; Natural. The colors may not appear accurately on your monitor. If you need to know the exact colors in the painting, I can provide you with pantone numbers.

Sold, but I have more similar work available.
