Art 'n Soul's game is 'marbles.' In each take-'n-make pak, there are 5 pieces to a puzzle. If anyone finds that at least 3 of their 5 puzzle pieces actually fit together like they should, that person earns a free 6x6 paper pad from Authentique, one of the NWPC sponsors. Here's a photo of the marble puzzle . . .

This is an amazing artist that I accidentally found the other day. He is a paper artist who cuts paper as his art. I think you will be as astounded as I was.

On the Dreamweaver Stencil blog, they are featuring more of the collaborative artwork between Lynell and Wayne Harlow in the combined stencil and sten-tangle technique.
