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 Challenge SDC64: Combine 2 stamps

My Stampotique DT Mate France Challenged us 
to create one image by combining two stamps.
This is a brilliant idea. It took me some time and thinking about what I wanted to do.
I love Halloween and I have been Jonesing' to start making spooking things. 

Here are the stamps I used:

The background was done by using 
gesso with a palette knife
Winsor & Newton inks in
Scarlet, orange, nut brown and black
Then adding H2O and let bleed.

Taking a bit of Styrofoam as a stamp for the edges.
Then adding a bit of Distress inks to add more pop.
Rusty Hinge and Aged Mahogany

Copic markers for the images and fussy cut them out 
with Prima's knife tool and self healing mat.
Pitt brush pen for edging around the stamped images.

Silhouette for the tree.

Here is the link if you would like to play along with the challenge.
