After getting the American Girl Punch art book, my friend (LtlPita)  and I decided that regular paper and construction paper didn't do justice to our creations. Cardstock was fine, but there weren't enough colors. One day I came across some paint strips lying in my room and we decided to try them out. It worked very well and we even started coming up with our own creations (such as lizards and totsie rolls).

Thank you  Grin I may put some of them on cards. The main thing I will use them for is scrapbooking though.

Wow. That's freakishly adorable. I wish I could make little animals out of paper punches.
I love the use you found for paint chips, by the way. I love collecting those.

These are adorable! I'm making a felt ipod case for a friend right now, and these inspired me to make little foam creatures to adorn the case with! I'll try to get a picture of the finished product. Awesome job.

Project Vox -  What will you say?

I, Shout, along with fellow artist, Howl, make 5x4" cardstock booklets with our artwork on them, and leave them in random places for people to find.  The goal: to inspire and provoke thought

Have you seen any of our cards?
