Studio Organization Giveaway

This is a sort of selfish giveaway, but I needed to make space in my flat files, so I weeded through some painted papers I use for collage, and decided to off-load a heap of them. Use them in your own collage or art journals, or cut them up for gift tags, give them to your kids or grandkids to play with. 

These are my flat files, handmade by my father some years ago.

This is a sampling of the papers included in the giveaway stash.
If you are interested in taking these off my hands and adding to your stash of collage papers, please comment on this post, identify yourself uniquely (for example "Mary from Ohio", rather than just "Mary), and then check the blog on Friday, when I will announce the winner.  I may throw in a few art supplies as well, not sure what yet.  It is the winner's responsibility to contact me with a mailing address.  THANKS!!
