Ooh, I love the Chakrahs! And that ostrich is too funny.

I have received a pile of wonderful cards but haven't had time to post anything, I promise to send out messages soon at the very least.

YES! The stars are masterboard bits. I posted about making them here.

The background of the mushroom card was made with a stencil I cut out of paper and some acrylic paint pounced on with a cosmetic sponge. Easy! I did the background of the masterboard flower card for thanate the same way. Paint is fun!

Do you like this idea but wonder what they heck you'd ever do with a completed masterboard? You are not alone! They seem confusing at first but I think that once you get started you'll find that even the smallest snippets are valuable little crafting supplies that you can find a delightful use for. I am enchanted with how my projects turn out every single time I include some masterboards. They are seriously fun bits for paper crafting.

This video shows gelli printing on tissue paper that is then torn into strips and pasted together onto a new board. I used deli paper which is a bit sturdier than tissue.

My prints, none of which are all that gorgeous on their own:

Torn into strips and glued to a new sheet of paper with gel medium.

Layered with stamps and stencils. At this stage I always think things look like a hot mess but I've learned to trust the process. You aren't aiming for a finished project here, only an interesting back ground.

Gold paint flecks sprinkled liberally over the whole sheet.

Cut up into 6X6 inch master boards, the trimmed off parts were the perfect ATC size.

I am so excited about all the projects I keep imagining with these wonderful colour collages I've received. You all made such lovely boards, I am still amazed at the unique take everybody manages to have. It's awesome!

First up, from Anna:

I like how the sheet music peeks through.

Love these sparkly stars!

Of course this rainbow profusion would be my fave of the bunch Cheesy!

And from Smmarrt:

Alcohol inks, such a cool result.

Yummy strawberry glazed donuts, mmm!

This one is so neat looking.

Classic colour and pattern layering.

This is my fave. Are the little black dots a stamp or a stencil? And the grid? I would love to know how you got this effect, it is just great.

I made a post of ATCs using masterboard elements. I really love how they turn out!

Everybody's cards are looking so great! There is some serious talent here, wow. I am loving all the hand drawn and painted stuff so much, you gals are hilarious Cheesy. Beautiful embroidery too, and the MONSTERS! Gosh. Crazy good stuff y'all.

I am so hopeful for happy mail this week, everybody's work is looking so great!

I used the scrap bits of my boards for recent ATC's, they should start showing up soon too. Wait until you see how versatile they are, I did all kinds of stuff with them! Fun fun Cheesy.
