Best. Mascara. Ever

Wednesday, November 12, 2014


I took time to remember my grade school art teacher today.  She lost her husband recently and so I made her a sympathy card.  I've thought of her off and on over the years.  She influenced me and my love of memory keeping.  She didn't know that making me yearbook editor during my middle school years would start me on the path to becoming an obsessed scrapbooker.  She didn't know that introducing me to watercolors and art concepts would grow into making me a crafty card maker with a room full of art supplies. It makes me wonder if I've influenced someone's path, without even realizing it.  Makes one think.

I used some Tim Holtz distress paints in blues and silver for the background and filled in with some distress ink on top.  After stitching the edge down I added some embellishments with gold accents and then tied it all together with some gold stamping on the background.

Hope you have time to reflect on some memories today!
