I knew what I wanted to do for this piece but needed to find a quote that fit. I found a quote, but it doesn't have any attribution. There are variations of it, but I prefer what I used ~ 'Passion Propels Your Dreams'. I think that is lovely quote, and very true.
I got my inspiration from Bibi and all the stamps I used are from Rubber Dance; a new company, with beautifully detailed, deep etched stamps, in red rubber.
I did my background with Neocolor 2s and smooshed with a baby wipe. After trying Bibi's 'easy face-lift technique', (which I've found isn't quite as successful as it was with the distress inks that Bibi used), I coloured most of the stamped areas with colouring pencils.
Thank you so much for taking the time to come and look. I hope you like what you see.
Now if you recall this post where I shared my wee boys detailed drawing of, Granny in the Garden, I would now like to share with you the ring binder we bought and decorated yesterday, to keep his art works safe.
We used Stayzon to stamp the VW campers, (we haven't found a proper bus stamp yet), and he stamped his name himself using my wee alphabet stamps. He has developed an admiration for dogs, but at a distance, and he loves spotted things, hence the choice of stickers used. He took this up to bed with him last night so that he could look at it this morning when he woke. Awww.
Edited: Thank you to all who commented or emailed me about a bus stamp. Who knew there were so many out there!? But the wee fella has chosen and our order has been sent. So it'll be bus stamping in my near future I think :)
Well, until next time.............
.........thank you so very much for popping by to say 'Hi' *hugs*
