Inspirational Mixed Media Rolodex

Seems every time I hit the thrift store I see an old Rolodex.  I always think to buy it, but a lamp or chair calls my name and I forget about it.  When I finally decided to make this Inspirational Rolodex project I hit at least 4 different thrift stores and could not find one to save my life.  The lesson here is simple, if you see an old Rolodex, grab it!   The fact is, with all of our contacts in the cloud, things like a Rolodex are becoming obsolete.  Just when I got into my Rolodex groove, too.  Remember, if you see something and it inspires you, GRAB IT!  
Also, don't forget to Make Your Mark.
Make a page for every day of the year! 
Fill each page with color and inspiration 
You might even add some photos of your friends and family....Just a suggestion.
Watch how I made mine here!
 For this project I created my pages with a Gel Press
I used Americana Multi-Surface Satin Paints because I'm painting paper, metal and plastic
I also used card stock, printed inspirational quotes, book pages and printed tissue paper
 This would be an amazing gift for someone who needs a daily lift!

Believe you can and you're halfway there!
