This is a rather busy page - Started with the theme of OPPOSITES from the Creative Every Day blog - in this case the opposites are the colors. A good challenge for me since I rarely use blue colors although I am rather partial to orange (all earth tones really).
At the time when I drew the big hair I thought to myself,
"Self, wouldn't it be a great idea to fill the entire hair with your favorite tangle - Paradox?"
That is why it is never really a good idea to talk to yourself - Sometimes your own ideas give you a crick in the neck!
Quote is courtesy of Henry Ward Beecher. Do you like the funky orange background? I stamped that with my very own newly carved stamps! Kim came over yesterday and, since we are both taking Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's online stamp carving class, we carved up a storm. This is truly a fabulous class!! LOVING every minute of it - Lesson 2 is learning how to carve stamps that nest within each other - that's what the two smaller square stamps are -
The larger stamp is a total knock-off of Julie's example stamp but that is okay until I get my bearing with the whole carving thing - then I will branch out on my own more.
Anyhoo - I think my lady is pretty fabulous - very different from anything I've done before which seems to be a repeating theme lately - "TRY SOMETHING NEW"
It is hard to tell in the pictures for some reason but there are two colors of blue in the hair fitting into the Play Date Cafe Color Challenge for this week.
