I saw a movie recently that touched on important messages from parents to children, which got me thinking about what I’d say if I had just one word of wisdom to impart. I didn’t come up with it, yet…. but I’m thinking! Love, Trust, and Patience are all in the running.
These are Tim Holtz’s Sizzix dies (Block Type alphabet and Writing Desk – inkwell and feather) and the fountain pen is stamped and cut out.
I used my Xyron® 3” Sticker Maker to adhere the ink well, feather, and letters to the page. The journal is new to me. It’s an 8″ square version of the Global Arts Watercolor Book I use frequently. I really like this new size a lot. The background is done with Golden Paints and Ranger Inks, along with stamps and stencils.
I like the way the gridlines from MaryBeth Shaw’s Squared On stencil are barely visible. I started out with the whole page in a grid format. Next, I painted over much of it to leave only some of the lines visible. I think the lines are sort of mysterious as they fade in/out of the background. I’m linking to to this week’s theme at Simon Says Stamp.
