Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: What does it mean to be "epic?"I really should stop watching tv altogether! There are times when I take television "vacations," and turn instead to books. Now may be one of those times. I am just frustrated by what I've been hearing lately on commercials! Ugh! The other night there was a Visa ad and do you know what it said? "The Superbowl. The most epic day in America." REALLY??????? Are you kidding me?????? So I looked up the word "epic" - wondering if somehow I had never understood the word in the first place and here is what I found for the definition of "epic" as an adjective: "of, relating to, or characteristic of an epic or epics." Okay, that's not really helpful since the word is used to describe the word....so then I looked at "epic" as a noun and came up with this, "a long poem, typically one derived from ancient oral tradition, narrating the deeds and adventures of heroic or legendary figures or the history of a nation." So how is the Superbowl the most epic day in America?????? These are the most heroic and legendary figures we have??????? I can't even continue with this! How ridiculous!!!!!!!!!! Yes, I need a television holiday!
For today's card I created die cut acetate stencils to make the background. Here is a video to show you how....it's epic! :)
