Buried Treasure with Seth Apter

Today Seth Apter is hosting his sixth annual Buried Treasure feature, where he encourages bloggers to re-post a favorite project from the past and he shares links so we might all discover some forgotten or missed posts.  Take time to check out Seth’s gorgeous blog… it is chock full of art, eye candy, and inspiration.  If you have a chance to take one of Seth’s classes, don’t hesitate!


Last week I celebrated my 600th blog post with two Giveaways (today’s the last day to throw your name in the hat as the winner will be announced tomorrow). As I looked through my Blog Archives, I decided to choose a post that’s textural, colorful, layered, and motivational… my favorite kind.  My piece for Seth’s Buried Treasure dates back to 2012, when I made this page as a tutorial post for Eclectic Paperie.

When I participated in Seth’s 2013 Buried Treasure Collection, there were 80 bloggers listed….I’m curious to see how many are in the Buried Treasure this year.  I’m off to Seth’s blog to find out…

Thanks for the visit!  If we’re not already connected, please sign up for my newsletter or follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, or Twitter… whichever social media platforms you prefer.
