#oopsadaisyhop - Scrap embellishments

I had the pleasure of psrticipating in a video hop on youtube that was hosted by Peg Robinson. The theme for the hop was Oops-a-daisy....

#oopsadaisyhop According to www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/ups-a-daisy.html
The form in which it is now most commonly spoken and spelled is 'oops-a-daisy'. The first known printed record of any form of the term is in Clough Robinson's The dialect of Leeds and its neighbourhood, 1862: Upsa daesy! a common ejaculation when a child, in play, is assisted in a spring-leap from the ground. Encouragement as some may call it. We as members of The YouTube art community proudly present our Oops-a-daisy videos as  a stepping off point for you.

I decided to work with pieces of scrap papers from patterned paper to gelli prints and other scrap pieces to make them into layered embellishments that could be used on tags, cards or even in art journal pages. I really enjoyed doing this technique of layering bits of torn paper on top of each other to make these embellishmnets. Hope you enjoy the video... xox
