New cards and the Motherload of Paper Artists

Here are some new things I worked on in the last few weeks.  More of my version of an ATC, a rolodex card.  I'm starting to alter the actual Rolodex file and will store the cards there soon; therefore the notches are cut out as you can see. Remember you can click on the images for a larger view.
 
  

This last one is a large tag.
 

 
 
I'm always searching for web resources on paper art and crafts and recently found 2 sites that I must share; they are just phenomenal.   Jupi T. Das is someone in my own state of PA.  (I'm also always searching paper artists in my area.)  She was invited to the white house for her art, and she's one of those amazing scherenschnitte artists. The tiny, precise, paper cutting art. She prefers that I didn't use her images, but you'll see them in her site.

The other source is a source in itself. You have to see Upon a FoldThe site has many other paper artists listed within that are awesome to check out.

Enjoy your journey,
