first etsy purchase
this week i made my very first etsy purchase. it was a wonderful experience i would highly recommend to all. if you have never purchased from etsy, you should really consider doing so. i bought some lovely vintage dictionary paper for my collages from the Scrap Shoppe. the Scrap Shoppe is a great place to find a lovely assortment of vintage paper and scrapbooking goodies. if you are a multi-media collage artist like me, this shop is an absolute dream. i told dianna what i was looking for and she was more than happy to put together a custom order just for me. thanks dianna!
this is the vintage paper i ordered. i was giddy with excitement when my package arrived in the mail. i was already making collages in my imagination. my paper came wrapped in tissue paper with a lovely little note. it felt like i was getting a gift from a friend. yay! i love getting gifts.
i just love the look of this vintage paper… it might not last me very long because i have already been hard at work using it in my paintings. here is my first painting using this paper.
what do you think? i really liked the way it turned it out. i was going for a vintage shabby chic kind of look.
