Ephemera

Hi everybody! 

Where did the week go?
The older I get, the faster time flies by....
I have a very sore thumb just now, encased in a splint, which makes a lot of typing mistakes!

Our theme this week is ephemera. I used partly peeled cardboard painted with gesso for the background, various scraps of DP and some old book paper as matting, and smeared gold Utee down the right side and stamped into it. The stamped panel in the middle was a scrap card used to try out stamps, and the umbrella man was cut twice, once from black card recycled from a calendar, and once from an ancient passport from Uruguay, which someone threw away....The sentiment is from TH.




Have a great week, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!

Valerie

  2. He is indeed a rather swish umbrella man. Digit certainly can be so painful. Good luck with it!
