Snow Day = Creative Day

I love snow days! It feels like a free day to do whatever you want... fun stuff! No housework, no defenitely not any housework.
Today I worked on a simple Easter card for an upcoming class. I am trying to come up with some simple cards for people with little stamping experience. I am also trying to make use of the paper we have in stock at the store, as well as limit the number of supplies I use (which can be very difficult for me).
For this card, I just folded a piece of cardstock and cut it into an egg shape. I added strips of pastel coloured cardstock which I had stamped with various stamps, added a couple of stamped butterflies, a few dashes and dots with gel pens, et voila!

One of my biggest obsessions is using book pages in my artwork. I love words/letters/script/text in any type of artwork. Today I gessoed and then spritzed and smooshed Glimmer Mist & Radiant Rain onto some pages I had ripped out of books.
I have lots of ideas for these. Here is a collage I made by stamping and embossing this nest stamp from the Artful Stamper onto one of the book pages and then painting it with Glimmer Mist. I also used one of the pages for layering in the background.

I like how this paper is turning out so far...

It reminds me of this fabric I have...

hmmm... what can I do with these?
