Inspiration!

A sweet breeze of inspiration blew in from New Hampshire via sunny Florida, affecting a lovely, rosy glow on the once pale cheeks of creativity....

AKA, my friend Lynne. She and her family stopped in for a visit on their way back home. Lynne is a fantastic artist. We had an, oh soooo short morning to create together before she had to head north. She showed me a stamping technique that I had been wanting to learn. She also took out some goodies from her travel "tool kit" in order to show me her latest obsession...


Flowers!!!!!!! Missing from the picture above is the great set of punches she had....


Felt, burlap, sheet music, tulle, twine, ink, and a little glitter and voila, a sweet boutonniere perhaps...
And a "vintage" crepe paper lovely!

Oh the wonders of vintage sheet music and coffee filters.

Lynne shared with me the technique to get that hazy glow of color along with the tinted edge... so simple... yet so unattainable with everything I had tried before... just move the stamp in a circular motion... and of course, use Tim Holtz"s products.


~ Thanks, Lynne, for the inspiration and visit... oh, and the sharing of stash :) ~
