Pick a Letter

the challenge over at Wednesday Stamper this week is to use a letter of the alphabet as inspiration in what you create …

my creativity is a bit flat just now …

another part of my challenge was to get a true photo of my postcard…

the closeup above is a photograph…

below is a scanned photo that you can click for a closer look at the layers…

I did have this postcard in the works on my work table and was able to add the She along with some additional color/shading/stamping and more …

all are welcome to join in the Wednesday Stamper challenges…the only “rule” is that you use at least one rubber stamp in what you make…


S is for …she …sacred …silence …simple …strong… swan… silver… soft… sad… sea… shabby… soothing… spirit… sun… surreal… sparrow… San Francisco… Switzerland… spin… sparkle… sentimental… shadows… seasons… surrender… Spring…

“A letter is an indivisible sound
That is fit for writing;
A letter, to define it better,
Is the smallest part of a composite sound.”~Gulheim Molinier

  6. This is a wonderful piece of creativity – and if this is you being ‘flat’, the rest of us might as well give up when you’re back to full steam ahead 🙂

  39. Love that list….what a great journal idea….an alphabet book where you just keep adding special words to the pages. While you may feel that not all the engines are firing in your creativity, to me, it looks like you might be on auto-pilot as this creation is full of soul.
