Paper and Ink Imaginings

Black, White, Red and Turquoise Floral Birthday


I’m trying to figure out my strategy for building up inventory for the gallery. I think for now, since I have to make all categories of cards, I will just go where the mood leads me. (Remind me I said that when I complain that I have 50 floral birthday cards and nothing else! LOL!)

Supplies: Stamps – Hero Arts, Papertrey Ink, paper – Avery Elle Neutral Collection, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Real Red, Tempting Turquoise (retired – sniff, sniff! still upset!), inks – Hero Arts Unicorn, Stampin’ Up! Old Olive, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise (retired), dies – Hero Arts, My Favorite Things, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder white.

  1. Did your friend have any insurance this time? Any coverage for your inventory?

    • The gallery owner, knowingly, had only insurance for building and furniture/fixtures. No one would insure art in a flood zone. I knew that going in to the reopening. The majority of the artists have coverage based on them having a studio space (dedicated, or at their home). Alas, I am a hobby artist, I do not. (too small potatoes) Last time, the county arts council offered grants to the artists to cover their losses (and I qualified & received one). Not sure if grant money is available this time. I do have a friend who has offered to cover my loss. (We had the discussion a few months ago, the gallery wanted me to triple my inventory, I was hesitating (based on 2016 flood loss), my friend told me to do it, he would cover any disaster.)
