Brenda, What a fun idea for people intimidated by starting from scratch! BTW...I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your header! And also...thanks for reminding people about copyrights and on your other blog about stepping away from a forum when anger is present. Good advice!
Enjoy Ireland. Wish I could stow away with you.

Brenda,
I'm so glad I stumbled upon your blog. I love this painting project and I love your mention of copyright!

I see a lot of artist/crafters using scrapbook paper in their pieces and reproducing it. For example: selling a piece of art with a piece of scrapbook paper as a collage element and making reproductions of that art piece to sell as prints. I do have a question for you...I spoke to another artist who uses scrapbook paper and commercial fabric in her art and I asked if she thought it was OK to sell a piece like this. She felt that you could as long as the piece was an original and not a reproduction.

I would love to hear your opinion on the subject of using scrapbook elements in art. Especially since you design them.

Thanks!
Heather

Heather, thanks for asking such a good question. First, read this post:
http://artsandcraftslaw.blogspot.com/2007/10/little-from-herea-little-from-there.html
What I'll add to that is this:
Each creator of original content can decide if they wish to let others create from their designs for commercial purposes. My opinion may differ from someone elses. I love creative people and want to encourage artists to use my designs in their own creative projects. If they want to take it further into creating art for sale, I would want 1. see the image 2. know exactly how many images they were going to make and how much they would sell for. I do have an angel policy, but it has limits.
Over a certain number of pieces, I would expect a small royalty for using my art and a contract would be drawn up.
THE BEST POLICY IS; ASK FIRST. I think a lot of artists/surface designers would be very generous if you ask them.

Genius Brenda! I love this idea. Very non-intimidating!
