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.

Mini Journal.... Lurking-!

Happy Thursday to you....
Again, I have to say I love the mini journal pages.
As of late I have been having restless sleeping patterns. 
Just a lot of creative swirling in the brain.

Here I used Stampotique Originals Stamps....

The mermaid is...

 and octopus is...

Also there is a faint swirl pattern in the upper 3/4 of the page stamped in white. Done with

I first prepped my backgroundd with Gesso and added some texture by squishing that pages together then quickly opening them again. Try it sometime it is always different. Then I used acrylic paints and water for the background. Drawing in the sea plants with Pitt pens and colored with Copic markers. Stamped Smushallaum onto white paper and also colored with Copic markers, fussy cut out. Re-stamped her onto my page to add the detail the glued her on top of the stamped image. Same with Octopet. Added highlights to the page with geliroller pens and a stenciled image from Crafters Workshop.
