Definition: Aggregate is a collection of items that are gathered together to form a total quantity.

The fleeting moments of knowledge in which we discover our existence are facts that can be committed to memory. We can enlarge this aggregate memory and refashion it as we go through a lifetime. By saving these memories on paper and reconstructing the images of our lives. We see the art of our lives unfolding before us.

I believe in teaching, the sharing of ideas and playfulness of creating.

SDC82: Punches, Die Cuts & Arrows

My Team mate Astrid  from Stampotique Designers Challenge is asking us to play with Punches and Dies... I took this a step farther and added in my Silhouette.

I Love Tim Holtz Arrow Die.... on the top and bottom of page.

I love textures and cutouts so I wanted to use as many as I could. On the Silhouette I made the stars, doily and chevron came from the inside of the stars. The border and arrows are Sizzix dies. The pinking edges are from Fiskars scissors. Lastly- Martha Stewart circle punch.

Stamps I used:

Hope you will play along with us at the Stampotique Designers Blog.
