Leftovers

While cleaning up my studio...yes, I do that once in
a great while,....I found some dried up, leftover paint rags.

Of course I had to use them for something so I ripped them into
small squares.

Found some papers for layering.......

and they turned into some quote cards.
That was fun,,,especially the ripping part.

Have a great start to your week ahead.

I am sharing this with Paint Party Friday.

Yes, Cynnie! What beautiful leftovers. At first, I thought you had lettered them yourself, and then I saw a stamp we share: "Oh the wild joys of living." What a great idea. (I was thinking what pretty pillow covers the paint cloth would make!)

Hugs, Linda

Great creations Cynthia...the quotes/script are great and inspiring..Cool bit of recycling...I always feel bad about good quality pigments being slung out on rags and paper!
