Yesterday evening, thanks to some husbandly assistance, I got my Rollagraph wheels, handles and accessory storage set up. First, you should know that I don’t have a lot of wall space in my craft area – probably about six feet total and it is in a corner. The thread display unit on a re-purposed TV stand and the paper sorter on a chest of drawers that I showed you the other day (where I am storing stamps) pretty much use up all the wall space I’ve got. So I’ve always had to be inventive about creating vertical storage space.
This card uses a portion of one of the backgrounds I made for my 6/25/13 blog post on Rollagraph Serendipity backgrounds. The Local Produce stamp is from Impression Obsession. (I stamped it on watercolor paper in black Ranger Archival ink and then colored it in with Prismacolor pencils.) The branches image used for the background is one of Clearsnap’s Rollagraph wheels.
For the past week, I’ve been working in my stamping area, tearing up grungy old carpet, moving around heavy stamp and craft storage units and generally making a mess. But in the process, I pulled everything out of several storage areas and found a box full of Rollagraph wheels, ink cartridges and handles.
It’s been a while since I’ve used them, mostly because I haven’t been storing them with the rest of my stamps so when I’m browsing my stamps for a project, I forget about them (something I have corrected in my reorganization.)
I also was straightening up some scrap paper and it occurred to me that the Rollagraph wheels would be handy for turning odds and ends of left-over papers into useable background papers.
