early yesterday morning i was enjoying a few blissful minutes in bloggyland when i stumbled into a post talking about rubber stamps. i had been stewing over what to do to my latest collage called awakening. and it hit me -- i needed to dig thru my storage closet in the art room and find my antique rubber stamp kit. it would be the perfect font for the word awakening -- just the right size with a classic vintage feel. about twenty minutes later i had added the new word to the piece and was able to say "finished"!!
like many of my treasures, this rubber stamp set had been my dad's. i bought it for $5 in the family auction we had two years ago. what a wonderful deal!!! now that i've used it, i'm going to keep it out to remind me to use it more often.
lazy, rainy saturday morning here in ohio. perfect day to have a second cup of coffee and spend the day in the art room -- in my pajamas, of course!!! take care and have a wonderful weekend!
