Covid-19 Stay At Home

Welcome to my blog, Paper Crafting With Rebecca!

Spring is in the air but we are all stuck at home! Thank goodness I have an activity I enjoy doing so much to keep my hands busy... paper crafting! I have spent my days making scrapbook pages, cards, working on my art journal, and dabbling in acrylic painting. What have you been doing to maintain your sanity these days? (Share with me in the comments below.)

For those of us with a large paper stash this is the perfect time to snuggle into our craft rooms/areas and get busy! I thought you might like to see a tiny fraction of what I've been creating. If you have any questions about supplies or techniques don't be shy about asking.

Here are a couple of scrapbook pages I've made for my 8.5" x 11" scrapbook album...

This is a sweet picture of my granddaughter
helping her mommy plant flowers.
Her mommy took this picture and sent it to us...
it sure brightened our day as we are really missing our family.

I made this page using some magazine clippings and
some screen shots I took while visiting with our
granddaughter over video chat. I sure do miss her hugs!

I've been playing with different materials and techniques making cards, too. Nothing too serious, just some lighthearted fun.

Here are some kids cards I made using puffy stickers to cheer
up our preschool neighbor children and our granddaughter.

Playing with ink blending and black silhouette stamping.

Some more ink blending fun and some watercoloring.

It is always sad when I need to make a sympathy card.
I much prefer to give somebody a hug in person, but
sometimes circumstances only allow for a card.

Of course Easter is on the way, so I've been making a lot
of Easter cards these days. Here are just a few of them.

Lastly, I'm still teaching myself how to paint with acrylics.
Currently I am working on learning how to paint water.
Can you tell what this is a picture of?

I hope you and your family are staying safe, healthy, and not too stressed out. We simply need to remember this time of isolation will not last forever. Family hugs and time together will return.

Happy Paper Crafting,
