Changing my lenses
One of my favorite quotes is by Marcel Proust:
"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes."
I looked at my collection of rubber stamps, and this is one of the very first ones I've owned. It's by Rubber Romance. Typically, I just stamp it on cardstock, black shirt and all. This time, I gave her a wardrobe change. Using my xacto knife, I cut her a new top out of script patterned paper. I stamped her jeans on 'denim' pp, and cut that out also, with my xacto knife. I fell in love with this paper by Basic Grey when I first saw it, but to be honest, didn't know what to do with it. When I started cutting and coloring this chic lady, I knew that this paper, that I had tucked away for so long, was perfect for this project. I think I may send this into a magazine for consideration. Hmmmm........
