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.

Stampotique SDC262: One Layer Card

Good Morning...... Crafties-!

Here is the latest challenge with Stampotique DT and our hostess Gez.
This technique is by Tim Holtz and is called Alcohol Agates. Using Glossy paper from Ranger and a Ink Blending tool, felt pad and Alcohol Inks: Stream, Lettuce,  metallic silver and Blending solution. Pouncing the ink onto the Glossy paper. Then stamping with Archival ink right on top of the Alcohol Agates technique. I went back in with Copic markers to highlight the  hair and tail of the mermaid and Octopet.
I used Stamps:

We are going from one extreme to the next and Gez is our hostess this week:

 One layer cards have always fascinated me, especially when masks etc are involved!
 I'm more of a many layers sort of crafter and find these an easier option!
