WOW (What's On MY Worktable)

Click on the picture to see a larger view. 
I realized today that I had completely missed doing this since I got back from the Tim Holtz cruise so I apologize that my brain is still on vacation. I have been busy lately designing some punchart for McGill. I was contacted a couple of weeks ago to do a bunch of projects for the next CHA booth along with many others using their Paper Blossom punches. Many of you may not know that I used to be a big scrapbooker and my specialty was using paper punches. I even published a book about punchart called Punch Artistry. (Click here for a shameless self promotion video.)  In my previous life I had done work for Memory Makers, Fiskars, Scrapboooks Etc. and Creating Keepsakes before becoming the lead designer for a small Michigan company called Kinetic Scrapbooking.

Basket of some of the Paper Blossom punches. The rest are on their way in a big box. (It will be just like Christmas.) 

Here's a close-up of the dogwood flowers I am working on. You may have noticed that there was a small canvas in the large photo of the entire desk. I am planning on putting it on a canvas but the one I had was too small. I hope to tear an opening in the canvas and make it appear that the branch is growing out of the wall behind the canvas.

Well, I, for one, did NOT know about your previous life! From the look of these flowers, I don't doubt it!

How much fun is this? You get to play with new punches and create some stunning 3-D art. Great idea having a branch poke out of the canvas!
