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.

Face the brilliance of your most wonderful creations and dwell on your dreams.
I believe in teaching, the sharing of ideas and playfulness of creating.

SDC94: Focus on Flowers

It is Stampotique Designer Challenge day....

My team mate Gez is challenging us to focus on flowers. I have to say that I really like making paper flowers it just makes me so happy to create a 3D flower just out of paper.

I was a bit sort on time for this one. So I grabbed an already inked tag. I never waste any ink on my craft mat... I just sop up the remaining ink on any tag that is handy. This is a huge timesaver. I do not need to think too much about the background. Really by doing this it takes some of the work out of down and dirty get it done projects. I sprayed white mist through a stencil, splattered some black watered down acrylic paint to make splatters and stamped Spray stamp in random areas of the tag.

The paper I used for the flowers is just copy paper with spray inks and dried with a heat tool. Here is a link for the tutorial that I used from Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers Challenge winner, Lisa Nazario-Gregory makes the most realistic flower creations.... I just had to make some. Go check out her blog. Then I added the sentiment and my favorite bee stamp in the whole world.

I hope you will be able to play along with us and use you creativity to make some out of this world Flowers.


Stamps I Used:
Medium Bee with Tiny Bee
Keep Calm (NEW Stamp)
