Cards Using Kid’s Paint Palettes

 The paper palettes left behind after my kids paint are incredible. I never throw them away.

Colors swirl and mix, leaving textures and patterns I couldn’t have made intentionally.

Their old palette papers made beautiful cards. 

I used my circle and butterfly punches and then added words clipped from newspapers.

And this last card was made using the scraps from the scraps! 

 And it’s my favorite.

For me, art is medicine. 

It makes me feel better, so this is my new tag line.

These cards will be for sale in my new Etsy shop for Cockayne Syndrome as soon as I can list them.  I made envelopes out of recycled newsprint for them so they’re very ‘green’.
