It's been a long time since I created for no other reason than just to create - a really long time.
This is what I made . . .
The base is an old blotter (they were used to "blot" ink from fountain pens"). The wrapper was still on the package and when I took it off the color had changed underneath it - I love surprises like that. I chose one of my adopted little boys - a tin type sweetie with some pink in his cheeks for the focal point and I used an old business stamp (for tax returns - yuck!) under him. Another fun tool I used that's been sitting on my desk for a while is an old metal notary seal. I am planning another YouTube video this week and will show it on that (and I found some at the flea market this weekend and will put them up on the 15th of March at the site)! Here's a little detail shot . . .
Hoping to carve out some more time this week to create . . . just for the sake of creating.
