The way the edges of everyday things look when inked and stamped on paper intrigue me.  I was trying to make circles for a project and used the bottom of a coffee cup to get the size circle I wanted.  Since then I look at the edges of things in a different way.   

This piece was done with Tim Holtz Distressed Ink and lots of edges.  The bottom of a disposable cup, the edge of an acrylic block, a little bottle that holds bling, the top of a glue stick with fishnet hose over it, a piece of the stuff you put under a rug to keep it from moving, and other things I can not longer remember were all used.  

I may be becoming obsessed with making backgrounds!


  1. making background paper is so addictive. very nice.

  2. background creation is wonderful and let's the spirit soar ~ (A Creative Harbor) ^_^
