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.

SDC74: Nature


 My teammate Nellie at Stampotique Designer's Challenge is asking us
to create something to do with nature.

I have created a journal page with Yupo paper and watercolors. 
Taking plastic wrap and setting on top of the wet watercolor and letting it dry.
This gives a lot of texture and interest to the background.
You could just stop there, However- I take it a step further and
do line drawings with a black Pitt pen.

I used Stamps:
One of my all time favorite stamps.
 I cut her legs and repositioned them to look as if she is sitting on a tuffet.
This is a very versatile stamp cube to have in your stash.

I hope you can make it over to Stampotique Designer's Challenge
to play along. As well as see what all the other designers are doing.
If you play along..... you could win a certificate from Stampotique
Also you can create with whatever stamps you have on hand.
