Anything Goes at Your Scrapbook Place

Have you been to Your Scrapbook Place challenge blog this month? Their sponsor is Imagine That and the DT has created some inspiring art. I used a digi image called      . After coloring her with Copics, I framed her with a paper doily that I colored with homemade shimmer mists.
 I folded a large K&Co tag in half as my card base, and embellished with sparkly trim, a ribbon bow, flowers and a butterfly.
My card was super easy and quick to create. My secret is that I have most supplies within arm's length, so I can grab paper from my left, as well as my markers; embellishments are sorted and labeled in a workshop unit, the kind my hubby would use for screws, nails, washers and such; my tape gun is on a shelf above my table. I snagged a shadowbox from last summer's rummage sale and hubby put it up over my table. Now I have all my sprays, powders, specialty markers and pens, distress inks, etc., up off my table but readily accessible.
It sure sounds like I have a designer craft area, but NOTHING in my room matches. I have no budget for my crafting, so when I see a piece of furniture or storage supplies on clearance (or lying on the side of the road LOL) I decide if I can use it and it makes its home in my area. So my crafting den is organized but not pretty! And that is why you don't see photos of it!!
