“Every step you take, is a step away from where you used to be.”
Not much to say tonight, exhausted.. but as promised here’s today’s tip & my new listings for tonight. Almost didn’t make my goal of listing daily, but raising the funds for the surgeries I need, is a powerful motivator! Plus, I get to play in my art studio guilt free tomorrow! Yippee!

Today’s Creating Art Cards (Artist Trading Cards, ATC’s, ACEO’s) Tip!
Use Quality Materials – Especially for your base. There’s just something about using mat board as a base for Art Cards that enhances their beauty. It shows care, quality, and feels like a miniature work of art. Not to mention the stability benefits it has – it prevents your work from getting bent, looks wonderful on an easel and helps make your card a charming keepsake that will last. Take pride in your work, and let it show!
Mat-board scraps are perfect for bases – ask your local framers if they will give them to you, or sell them to you at low cost. Many will be happy to recycle these!
Come back tomorrow for another give-a-way and a new tip!
Thanks for any early bids — they are what keeps me motivated to list!
