The Soul In Love Series (Artists Trading Cards)

A weekend experiment with a background idea turned into "The Soul In Love Series" featuring some clips of passages I've read over the years about nurturing our souls. The Blue Fern Studios Checker Bits chipboard helped to add some dimension and additional interest as well.  I've got enough of the background technique experiment left to create a future art journal page, but I'm saving that for a rainy day. :)  There's mica flakes, gel molding medium, light molding paste, stamping, misting, stencil and stamping work on these little gems. 

Close ups for you:


Hope your weekend was stirring some creativity for your soul this weekend too.  Thanks for stopping by.
