DeDe's Idea Collector - Week #1

This week the words were Discover and something a style or a trend.  We were to look up these words and determine what they mean and what words describe them.  I was looking at - Polka Dots and did a postcard.

In my opinion Polka Dots are a TREND.  This was another UIU (Use It Up) project.  Nothing was purchased, everything I used was in my stash.


  1. I love how you made your background! Care to share what steps you made to create this?
    Oh, and I'm a big fan of Polka Dots. Not sure what they are but they can stay forever! ♥

  2. Sandra ..thank you..I made the paper using leftover paint I was using on another project. I learned this from DeDe - Inkwell on Ustream. Don't waste your leftover paint, I randomly brushed it on the paper, then I used silver paint and darker green and used (don't remember exact name) plastic type ribbon with holes as a template and dapped in the silver and dark green. When it dryed I used a rubber stamp with writing on it and stamped over it. This gave me a sheet of starter paper. Images were from a magazine and I added polka dot ribbon and matted.
