Another month for an atc swap at The Stamp Man and this months theme is The Ocean. I have to say I was a little stuck with this theme but after being in the company of the wonderful Angela I played with this. the Ocean is made out of kitchen roll - yep its true - the excess from using spray inks in blues and greens - added in the art quest way of using napkins - I am thrilled with the effect! a touch of distress ink - the addition of a compass from the Tim Holtz air travel set and a touch of doodling. My Grandma used to sing the song
Wide, wide as the Ocean
high as the heavens above
Deep deep as the deepest sea
is my saviours love
I think of that every time I hear the word Ocean so really felt it should be there. My team mates have worked wonders with this theme - check them out here
I spent a wonderful weekend with Angela , Anne and Michelle - full of artistic inspiration and perfect hospitality by Angela and her family - the ideal mix of crafting and socialising. I have lifted the p[icture from Angelas blog! Thank you for a wonderful time :0) Angela and her family move back to the states next week so the saving to visit has begun! do stop by Angelas blog here where she shares her gorgeous ideas.
Back to work for me today - hope your Monday is more exciting!
