I view things a little off-balance. What I consider centered isn't always the case. And I don't like things 'perfectly' centered on display; I prefer groupings and off-center positions. I'm very casual and proud that I've reached my 60th year without feeling dismayed about it.
So, here we go!
With an Avery Elle clear photopolymer floral stamp (Petals & Stems) mounted on IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Tack 'N Peel™ Reusable Cling Sheet, I stamped the image with IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento Luxe™ Mixed Media Pigment Ink in Morocco directly onto the chipboard. The Tack 'N Peel™ is easy to use as a stamp base because it can be washed with water, dried and re-used. I placed a piece of washi tape on the side of the clear plastic cover that is away from the sticky side so I'll always know what side to work from.
- The flowers, butterflies and birds are nature's gifts
- The stickers represent things I love in general . . . home, family, travel and 'magic' . . . the wonder of everything beautiful, imaginative and creative
- My 60th year and the upside down bird representing going against the grain, aka being totally different
- The off-centered bird cage within the frame
- The flip flop shoe brad representing the shoe of choice during the good weather months
- The Japanese lantern cut-out to represent my heritage that I haven't been in touch with until recently
- The 'one of these days' sticker that reminds me of how many items are listed on my bucket list that I'm determined to complete if I can quit adding to it!
