The Romance Of The Ballet

Hello Everyone
Tomorrow I will be here to share my That’s Crafty DT project but I decided to share a quick post with you this evening.
Re-winding a couple of months to when I received a copy of Stampington & co’s 400 More Ideas and I was so happy to see a tag I had submitted to Take Ten make it into this annual publication.
The Stampsmith’s Ballerina #1 is the focal on this tag.  You might recognise that I re-cycled Prima packaging which I painted with emulsion paint.   If you own or have seen this stamp then you will notice that I cut away the background as I only wanted the actual ballerina. romance of the ballet-001I submitted this a wee while ago and did not look at the photograph until the moment I received the magazine. Annoyingly the interference seen on the ballerina’s dress in particular, wasn’t actually there in real life but as I do not request any submitted artwork to be returned I cannot take the photograph again.
Thank you for visiting this post.  As I said, I will return tomorrow with a scheduled post.  I know tennis is not everyone’s cup of tea but hopefully tomorrow I will be relaxing (or possibly not!) as I watch Andy Murray.

    Absolutely Stunning Lynne. I only ever saw Swan Lake and this was the type of dress that the ballerina’s wore. I love your take on this stamp. Like you I’ll be having a day off to-morrow to watch Andy Win. So exciting. Hugs Rita xx

    Beautiful, Lynne. I like the ballet very much, though I don’t think I could sit through a ballet, I do love to see it in art and photography.

    Have a delightful day,

    Marianne xo

    She looks perfectly lovely to us, but I understand what you mean–I’ve had things photographed by others not-quite-right, and it can be a bit frustrating, yes?

    Anyway, she’s a charming image, and it’s a lovely tag.

    She is so graceful, and looks beautiful against the background. This most definitely deserves to be in print. Congratulations Lynne :-).

    Yay, he won!!! So cool! He finally nailed it and I’m really happy for him, congrats to you too 🙂 I saw the match and probably was as relaxed as you were (not, lol).
    Gorgeous tag dear Lynne – back to business now 🙂 – love the recycling of the packaging! Hugs and happy wishes for the week, Wendy

      Not very relaxing especially not nailing it on the first Championship point!
      So very happy for him, for Dunblane and for all of Scotland. He is a wonderful role model.
