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's Blog Hop Day 2 and New Stamp Release...

As per our Team Captain Kim

Yesterday you got to see one of our new artists, Maria.  Hope you enjoyed seeing her artwork!

Today I promised you a fan favorite, and I'm hoping we can deliver on that.  If you like spooky and strange characters, you will be happy to know Daniel Torrente has some new images coming your way.  Now, I know you are jumping up and down screaming right now...but sit down and focus otherwise you might miss the sneak of some of new creations.

Sarinda Jones, one of our design team members is sharing one of her creations using some of Daniel's new images.  She uses the following images, Oh...Tree 6152, Mini Ornaments 6153, Stringed Lights 6150 and Christmas 5 Sided 6065:

Hop along with some of the design team today to see some of Daniel's new images and come back and let us know what some of your favorites are.   Stick with us until the final reveal on Wednesday and one of you might be rewarded with some goodies.
You'll want to start off your hop over at Nellie's blog.

Thanks for stopping by to visit us today and you'll want to stop back by tomorrow for the 3rd artist we'll be featuring.  This artist has some fun little monsters to share with you.

If you get a bit lost along the way you can always go back to  Stampotique Designer's Challenge
to see where you need to go. 

Here is what I did.....

Oh... Tree 6152
Mini Ornaments 6153
Stringed lights 6150

I had to have a box so I used a stamp from an older release.
6065 Christmas 5 Sided Cube

I used a watercolor technique with distressed inks for the tree then added Stardust Glitz glitter glue to the side of the tree. Copic markers for the coloring. Highlights done with glitter gel pens and glossy accents for the lights. (it is hard to see it in the photo... However- it created a nice accent for the lights and made the gel pen sparkle even more)
 Font was AirmoleShaded-Regular.
