jane bosi} Happy Monday, Brakers!! Raise your hand if you stamp for the therapeutic value? I do! I find great peace in doing things other might consider putzy--like fussy cutting and zentangling!
I started this project because I had been using this fabulous Stampinback Stencil and left it laying on my cluttered desk. Also on my desk, a collection of distress inks. So, I picked up a few of my favorite colors and created a colorful stenciling. Days later, after purchasing a new fine tip Sharpie, I started the doodles. I thought I really wanted to craft something amazing, but what I really needed was the release. After two completed circles, I abandoned the piece to make something blog worthy........and then, still needing the peace, I returned to doodle the remainder.
Once done, I couldn't cover up any of it, so I opted for some stitching around the perimeter and a simple statement, Dare To Be Different. I mounted the sentiment on a die cut that mirrors the zig zag stitching and added a few sequins---because, who doesn't like a bit of sparkle? Next thing I knew.......it was blog worthy :)
Make it a great day, being awesome!
