Simon Says - Not A Card

Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Thank you for joining us for last week's challenge and we hope you can join us this week too because

and the theme for this week is...
I decorated a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Vignette Card File with Idea-ology Curator Ephemera Snippets and Design Tape Trims to hold Art Collage panels created with Idea-ology Pocket Cards, Flashcards, Snapshots, Photobooth, Stencil Cards, Urban Layers and Botanical Layers, a little box of inspiration for future projects.

I removed the handle from the Vignette Card File, fixed Curator Ephemera Snippets to the sides with Distress Collage Medium.
I applied a light coat of White Gesso using a small Distress Brayer.
I fixed Design Tape Trims on the edges and dividers to neaten.
I dug into my stash of Idea-ology Pocket Cards - these are the originals from way back in the day but I have linked to the latest version below
I laid out a selection on my Glass Media Mat and applied a light coat of White Gesso using the small Distress Brayer.
I arranged a variety of Idea-ology bits and pieces from Flashcards, Gauge Dials, Photobooth, Snapshots, Stencil Cards, Collage Tiles and Urban Layers on the pocket cards and once I was happy with each arrangement, I fixed them in place to create a collage using Distress Collage Medium Matte.
I added Idea-ology Curator and Number Ephemera Snippets
and Botanical Layers

I added more Design Tape Trims and torn sections of Idea-ology Entomology Collage Paper.
I fixed the handle to a scrap of black card, added an Idea-ology Thoughts Label Sticker and screwed the handle back in place on the card file.
Here are some of the finished Art Collage Panels, ready to add to future Art Journal or Junk Journal projects. I had so much fun creating these panels and with loads more pockets cards in my stash and plenty room in the card file box, I intend to repeat this adventure again.
