EtsyInspired #139 - Paula Art

Wow. I almost feel like I've forgotten how to write a real blog post! But I think I can, I think I can! It's Saturday, which is EtsyInspired time again. We're biweekly now, so you'll have 2 full weeks to play along!

This week we've got a super cool shop. Paula Art is contemporary, collectible art for your home, using as many recycled, reclaimed and reused items as possible. This makes for some very intriguing pieces! This is not your everyday, run-of-the-mill art. This truly is super cool and downright funky!

I chose to be inspired by the colours in the photo of these pipe vases - red, white, grey/black, and kind of a sandy colour. I like the colours and I think they're pretty darned awesome looking.

I went totally CAS to coincide with the SCS CAS DT search, but our sponsor this week, Shery K Designs has some great patterned paper that would work perfectly with the colours I chose, including the Victoria Super Mega Paper Pack, which is only $3!!
Stamps: Unity Beach Days & Sun Rays
Ink: SU Real Red, Distress Ink Vintage Linen, Memento Tuxedo Black
Cardstock: SU Real Red, GinaK Pure Luxury Base Weight
Etc: Embossing powder - clear & Brushed Corduroy Distress, pop dots

Now it's your turn. For full deets and to link up your project for this week, head on over to the EtsyInspired Blog. You've got until Friday, June 3, at noon, Pacific time. Before you go, though, check out the rest of the EIC team...Ashley & Emily may be a tad late, so if they haven't gotten their posts up when you get there, check them out later today.

Thanks for stopping by and for all of your thoughts and prayers.
