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.

SDC130: Something New...

Hello Stampotique Friends....

Stampotique Day was yesterday and the challenge is all about something new.... Did Santa bring you a new toy for the studio? Do you have a new technique you want to try?

Everyone that I know has been ill as of late, myself included. This stamp nailed all that I was feeling. I am glad to be on the other side. Feeling 100% Pure Love. xx

I used my new Intense Blocks on the background on my tag. I used a kraft tag and applied gesso with a brayer. Once dry, I was able to add the Intense dry right on top of the gesso. Sprayed with water and used my favorite tool, my finger and blended.  Perfect Medium Stampotique background dot background stamp then heat set the white embossing powder. Stamped Stampotique Sick Kitty with Memento Ink and color with Copics. Stamped Stampotique Feeling a little green... and fussy cut out images. Layered it all up and tied a ribbon. Hope you will come and join us in the fun.

Be sure to read the instructions on Stampotique's DT page before you upload your images as they have changed a bit. I don't want you could miss out on the winning prize.

Have a beautiful day...
