Using Sarah Whitmire's elixir for our distressing solution, I stained the tags and used various 'things' laid on the tag to leave a ghosted impression...this sorta worked.
Then we used word study as our prompt. I chose:
Wist-ful adj: Characterized by melancholy, longing, yearning/Hap-py: blessed, charmed, content
En-thus-i-asm: effort, absorbing interest, eagerness/In-dif-fer-ence: apathy, lack of interest,detachment
Love warm attachment, cherish, embrace/Hatred: dislike, loathe
We looked for images to put on the cards...wrote and stamped on them and embellished them somewhat.
On the one card you will see a lady at a table..she is writing...preparing...the lessons I plan to offer this summer at the gallery. Enthusiastic about the venture.
Content is a lot of areas...holding the babies, enjoying a snuggle, standing by the ocean breathing in the salty air. Enjoying the family supper with the arguments about who is doing the dishes. At my studio table. At the end of my shift when all the counters are wiped and dishes put away.
Wistful remembering yesterday's...how fast things change from yesterday to tomorrow.
I did the little cards with one word stamps. Love, happy, kisses, hugs...that kind of thing. To tuck into the pockets we make this week....
