throw kindness around like confetti--a deco square

Have you ever made a deco square?  You probably have, and didn't even realize it.  It's what we used to call square/rectangular art pieces, made for decoration, and sometimes they were swapped.  I imagine they still are.  This particular one also has inchies in all four corners, created on Eco Board pieces, which gives it some depth.

Unfortunately, I do not know who did the fun calligraphy. 

Happy Thursday to you!  Now go throw some kindness around . . .

Eco Board  for the corner inchies
Vintage Text pages for the collage background
ink pads or spray inks for the background and cheesecloth
Rubber Stamp Depot heart images
inks for stamping and staining the torn edges

chalks to color in the hearts
crayons for distressing
adhesive for gluing it all together
cheesecloth for texture


  1. Love this deco square, so pretty and the inchie corners are just the right touch! xoxo

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
