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 Ornament

Hello Creatives.

Today I have a quick tutorial using a blank plastic ornament and Stampotique stamps.
Step 1:
Take out the top on the ornament. Paint the ornament with white acrylic paint. Let dry and do a second coat.
Step 2:
Take Stampotique Christmas stamp and stamp on thin paper or tissue paper with StatzOn black ink.
Step 3:
Color the icons with Faber-Castel color pencils.
Step 4:
Apply a coat of Mod Podge to the ornament. Tear strips of the paper and adhear them to the ornament. Then apply another coat of Mod Podge to the surface.
Step 5:
Stamp mistletoe stamp onto the card stock with memento ink and heat set. 
Step 6:
Color with Copic markers and fussy cut out.
Step 7:
Apply a coat of Mod Podge then apply the mistletoe cut outs to the ornament. Coat with Mod Podge.
Step 8: 
Apply alcohol ink in red and brown with an ink blending tool and felt. Place top back into the ornament. 

Congradulations you have made a fun new embellishment for your Holiday tree.
