BBM, the 4square chain idea is inspiring.   I think I'll start playing with my pile of itty bitty pieces.  Thanks for the idea!

I found out that the fund raiser for the lady with cancer raised over $5,000.  Woohoo!  Hopefully one day soon that dreaded "C" word will be eradicated.

Yesterday I spent a little bit of time making some embellishments.  
I got the idea from this facebook video
https://www.facebook.com/elise.shaw.5/videos/2768418779849958/

Her's were pretty uniform in shape, I deviated from that.  The backs (that you can't see) are cut from a sturdy piece of junk mail.  Except for the words that I printed off and cut, everything else was from scraps of scraps.  The small pieces of random papers I had leftover from cutting up gelli prints and other papers for greeting cards and ATCs, tiny bits of ribbon and lace, and tissue paper that I had thrown into a box, etc.

I started gluing the layers together but wasn't totally happy with them, some of them were a little bulky so the word on top didn't lay flat so then I stapled the rest together.  I used to hate visible staples but after watching so many mixed media art / embellishment videos staple things, I have learned to embrace staples.

Those would be so pretty mounted in a painted frame!  Need to dump some photos here of what little I have gotten done!

BTW, do you know they make colored staples?  I have no idea where you would get them; my boss had green ones years ago when I worked for her.

I have colored staples but they go with a special type of staple board and not a normal stapler. But yeah colored staples would look good.
