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 Designers Challenge SDC68: Whatever the Weather

Hello Crafties....
Here is the current challenge for Stampotique Designers Challenge-!
Hosted By SUE.
Whatever the Weather.

I had so much fun playing with this challenge. 
(Thanks Sue)
SO so many ideas going through my brain. ha ha
I just purchased some Dr. Ph. Martin's Concentrated water color in an liquid form. 
Just to play with and

Here is what I did:
I used a velum product with the normal water color technique that I create.
But using the Dr. Ph. Martin's Color
Sloshed it around and used a heat gun.
Then cut a layered frame in Charcoal card stock as well as a white card base. 
Berries on my Silhouette.
Added some silver eyelash ribbon to bottom. 
Printed out "Whatever the Weather We Will be Together" in font Baveuse3D then colored with Copic Markers.
Also colored with Copic Markers.
Then used Glossy Accents on the lines of the whater color where I normally use a pen.
This totally gave the look of water running down a window pane.
Which is what I was going for.
Yeah It Worked-!!
