Brick By Brick

Saturday, October 23, 2010

While cutting all of my bookmarks down to size, I was left with all of these little "bricks" of cardstock.  They were too large in scale for a card project, so I cut each one into 4 equal peices.  Now they were the perfect size!
I inked each brick with brown Colorbox ink and adhered them in a staggered pattern.  I loved the look of the aged brick, so I added some moss growing between some of the bricks with my copics.


I punched and layered about twenty of these holly leaves.  I used two different sized circle punches to create the wreath "form" that I glued all of the leaves to.  Added a little bit of Prisma glitter for sparkle!
Have a great weekend.  We are going to my cousin's annual Halloween party tonight.  My mom and I made some really cute cupcakes to bring to the party.  I'll try to get some good pictures to post.

  6. I just love this, I usually throw out my small bits and pieces and now I may have to keep them. This is what I get for cruising the net in the wee hours of the morning, great inspiration
