Wednesday Stamper - Blue (& Planning for a Creative Weekend)

So here is my piece for the current Wednesday Stamper "Blue" theme. It is based on a beautiful blue and white napkin and uses a lovely Oxford Impressions stamp as the focal image.

Thank goodness it is the weekend! I am really looking forward to a lovely relaxing arty weekend as next week I am away on work field trips (and will be covering a lot of kilometres, approximately 26 hours in a car over four days). At least it is a lovely time of year to be out and about in the outback - early spring, before the really hot weather arrives, is such a lovely season here, especially if the wildflowers have started blooming. Maybe I'll even get a chance to take some photos along the way!

I've been reading the Fibre & Stitch Zine that I mentioned in my last post and it is fantastic - full of ideas that I can't wait to try. I love experimental stuff - in my mind, experimental means you have suspended the need for something to "work" - you are just willing to try it and see what happens. Really when you think about it, artistic freedom really depends on experimentation and means the same thing.

So now I am going to go and make my Cupcake piece for this week's "Artwords" challenge.

And to finish here is an extra little "blue" art - some canvas ATCs I made a while back. The text and the checkerboard pattern in the background are uninked stamps which have been stamped into damp paint and which effectively lift the paint off and leave the ghost image.
