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.

Aquatic Summer Layout Using The Coral Stencil From TCW.

 Hello Creatives....

Sarinda here with a Summertime Layout using TCW Coral Stencil, TCW360 and Viva Las Vegas Stamps. I LOVE this frog on skates...

This is a quick layout. I used Cream card stock then laid the Coral Stencil on top. My choice was to use Modeling Paste as my medium. Then applied spray ink to the side an let drip horizontally across the page. Add Twine, Title, images and embellishments. You are done. The longest part was drying the page. =)

Here is the Coral Stencil that I used.

Thank you for stopping by..... Wishing you a very creative day.
Much Love-

The Crafters Workshop Die Cuts.....

 Hello Artists-

I wanted to show you TCW Dies... I am LOVING these little gems. I wanted to show you how to make a quick fun Birthday Card with the dies. Really Quick and easy.

Plus it is my Birthday today and what better way to celebrate?!!!!

Step 1
Cut out a card blank in white paper. Then apply Pan Pastels with application in a diagonal across the page. I used an orange, pink, pale green and dark green. Be sure to round the corners of the card.

 Step 2
Use TCW1011 and cut a die out of gray paper.

Step 3
Attach the die cut gray paper to the top of the Pan Pastel sheet with 3D tape.
Step 4
Make a banner tag out of orange card stock. Stamp  STAMPOTIQUE Stamps "Happy Birthday" with Black ink and edge with Prima's Dark Bark Chalk Edger. Add to the front of the card with 3D tape.

Step 5
Cut out TCW Today TCW1034 in white card stock. Glue to the top of the banner tag. Then add an embellishment to the upper right corner. I used Prima's Wood Embellishments from the Cartographer collection.

Thank you so much for stopping in. My wish for you today is to be creative even if it is only in your minds eye.

Much Love.
