July 26 - Turquoise. I had a card that had been swiped with turquoise acrylic paint waiting to be used. I used Bermuda Bay ink on the stamped images and found that when I stamped full strength it really bled into the acrylic. That is why I then took a micron pen and overwrote the sentiment and the largest dandelion blossom and blown seeds.
July 27 - Carousel. So I took a little creative liberty with this and turned it into Carowl Sel and her story.
July 28 - Zebra. An art poster I pulled out of a school catalog along with some samples of zebra striping which I just extended.
July 29 - I didn't want a drawn angel but rather looked for a quote that could speak to all the angel friends that I've had at late wishing me well through this Pain in My Ass summer. I said that I didn't want this injury to define my summer but it doesn't seem to be working out that way. We still have a way to go I guess.
July 30 - Astronaut. Meet the crew from Pigasus 3. They have just taken off on their astronautical mission to boldly go where no pig has gone before.
July 31 - Thread. I received a package in the mail today from Poland. It was something little that I had ordered from Etsy but the stamps were so pretty and the box inside was wrapped with some brown twine I just had to use that for today's wrap up. I layered a couple of pieces of tea bag paper on the index card first - whip stitching them in place then added all the other stitching and stamps.
I thought those stamps were pretty cool although I have no idea what they're representative of.
So, all in all, I think this was a pretty good experience. I've tried some things I'd not tried before, including products and techniques. I'm also pretty proud that I got it done on time despite the physical challenges that I've had.
Time to find something else to explore my creativity with. Anyone know of any good challenges out there?
