well I was told to slow down by my shrink...I did try but it's so hard not to get crafty when I have all my supplies all over the kitchen table :)
I did go out for a while to visit a friend but as soon as I got home I got busy again...not a great deal of stuff...just two cards...the one that isn't pictured here was a special request from my Mum in-law, it is for a gentleman who has just been told he is going to die...he has cancer and there is nothing that can be done for him. The card was simple and will be given to the Dr who diagnosed him because she will give him the card...I don't know if I'm making much sense, I'm still a little emotional, I sat for about an hour trying to think of what to do, I don't know the man, but it still made me feel....gosh I don't even know how or what to say.
My question is....is it pathetic to give a card to somebody who's life is about to end? I usually sign my work but I didn't this time, I didn't want him to see my name on the back and hate me for trying to take his mind off of his disease
For a few months now I have had to keep a pretty huge secret...finally I am able to share it with you all....drum roll please I am proud to announce..... ARTISTREE stamps by PAPER FOREST DESIGNS An ecclectic range of rubber stamps made by three very talented Australian artists....
40 chunky pages for an international swap hosted by the amazing Jessie Scherf....the photos make them look a bit dull, I had my first play with shellac and decided to use it on the 5x5s, I used copper, gold and silver shim also....stamped corsette stamp on them and then dry embossed to emphasise the buttons and trim. I am really quite pleased with how they turned out :)
