Cool Resources

I am always flattered when asked where I come up with all these ideas for paper art. My answer is much like Stella's, "I've always depended on the kindness of strangers." I get the majority of my ideas from online resources and I credit them whenever possible in my workshops, web site tutorials, and in my former newsletter.

Take the waterfall card for example, I was introduced to this card by Split Coast Stampers and taught it as a stamped card around 2003-2004. This year I revised the design to include die cuts from the Wizard and now it's making another round. Pine Cone Press just featured one in their latest book too

You don't have to think of everything yourself, you just have to start making art. Enjoy!
Pictured in this blog--two stamped waterfalls and one with die cuts, the design is orignal to me, but the idea---well that came from one of many cool resources.
