Memory PaperArtsy stamps

some of my new PaperArtsy stamps came in handy stamped in black and colored with Acrylic Inks… the heart stamp is very close to moo size (1.1 x 2.8 inches/2,8 x 7 cm)…

memory final

I thought I was finished until I decided to delete the word “Just” using gesso and paint…

better without the word I think … this last photo appears a bit more blue than in real life but you get the idea of my finished pages

  11. You are using your PaperArtsy stamps so effectively, Patty and really incorporating them into your journal pages so that they take on the character of your art. I love the muslin in the background and I think that removing the word did make that page work even better. Your colour choices are always perfect in my opinion. I love the way you’re using moos at the moment. I have all kinds of nice bits and pieces left from projects and I keep thinking that I should make a moo or two; as I have not yet done so and yours look great! xxx

  12. I always enjoy first of all seeing the items you use in your artwork and then, of course, seeing the finished art. This is quite a mysterious piece, made even more so by taking out the word “Just”.
    I like the patterned circles on the right.

  15. Patty I so love the muted colors, the flags and the dyed fabric! Not to mention the circles, they catch my eyes for a while! The golden pattern on the bottom looks like fabric too, amazing page!

  16. I’m not sure how I missed this one, but it is gorgeous. You did GOOD when you chose your prize from PaperArtsy. The entire spread is lovely. I often have trouble deciding what words, if any to use on a spread, but you seem to know exactly what to say and write. Well done.

    Stay warm this weekend. Like you, we are supposed to get ice and snow later tonight (Sat). Wish Mr. M a happy belated birthday, please.

  18. You are so productive dear friend, what a beautiful spread, I love the cheesecloth you used here ,having its own life, and the gold effect is amazing around your stamp, and your words. The banner is the sweetest…love !! And yes Patty, I believe that a memory is never “just” so it was a good choice to cover it up!!
    Hugs from rainy Bornholm, and from Dorthe

  20. Can you hear my big sigh all the way in Virginia? Oh, I am simply in love with this spread, your words, and oh, the prettiness of it all. I am enchanted and carried away — and so much, I may even haul out my art journal and pretend to be Patty.
