Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: I've Been Known To Cry At Museums
Art museums impact me in so many different ways. When I was at the Milwaukee art museum a few weeks ago, I found myself near tears multiple times. The tears would threaten to escape the confines of my eye lids when I saw folk art and art by self-taught artists. I was overwhelmed by seeing that people will create with whatever they can in an effort to satisfy the need to create. I was also near tears when I would read of an artist dying at the age of 31 - so young, with so much art yet to create. Part of my tears are also about me. I wonder what lengths I am willing to go to to create art. I wonder if I will die with my art inside of me, or if I will commit each and every day to doing what I can to bring my art into the world. Yes, I've been known to cry at museums.
Today's card began with a Bashful Blue card base and the dress form stamp from Established Elegance. I then cut up thin strips of Victoria crochet trim and some organza fabric and adhered them to the dress form using Crystal Effects. Once the Crystal Effects dried I added the adhesive rhinestones and the pearls. The sentiment from Itty Bitty Banners was stamped onto Very Vanilla card stock, cut out and adhered to the card with dimensionals. Finally, I used Versamark ink and stamped the floral image from Established Elegance around the perimeter of the card. I hope you like it!
