The Power of Words

Hello Everyone
Let me sneak in a post before my That’s Crafty DT post scheduled for Sunday.
DIGITAL CAMERAA few weeks ago I shared a pendant I made for my lovely friend Alison (craftytrog’s inky adventures), for her birthday.  Well once again I inked up one of the Tattooed Ladies for this Oxford Impressions DT sampleDIGITAL CAMERAThe Tattooed Lady exudes a sense of her own power, her own belief DIGITAL CAMERADo you believe in the power of imagery and words? I certainly believe in the power of affirmations, they can bring encouragement  in times of extreme self-doubt and so it was that when I received the Oxford Impressions Tattooed Lady set to play with that I viewed the two sentiment stamps as affirmations.
When I altered this Memory Frame  I had visions of this becoming a decorative item which is why I made the chain short as I did not  want it to resemble a piece of wearable art.  This would possibly be wall art or hanging from a drawer handle in a creative space.  With the bold photo real stamped image of the woman and the positive words on the other side of this piece, I liked the idea that it would possibly give the viewer encouragement as she creates in her art space.
DIGITAL CAMERAThank You for visiting today and for your visits this past week. Tomorrow I will return with my final post for this week.

    Beautiful pendant Lynne. I’m sure that Alison will treasure it always. In fact Annie and I are meeting up with Alison, Brenda, and Jenny on Wednesday and then we all have the Tim Holtz class on the Thursday. Should be a hoot. Hugs Rita xxx

    So beautiful, again, dear Lynne,- I love the stamp, of this brave woman,- I think one should be brave with all those tatooes 🙂 and you made her shine, with the little lace and the crystals on top of the frame! I dare say it could be a lovely wearable art piece my friend, -it is such a wonderful gift . I do also believe in the power of affirmations ,and have dayes where I “carry” one with me to listen to it in my head !!
    Love and hugs from me.

    This most certainly is an original Lynne, I love the look in the eyes of this woman, she somehow exudes power, femininity and confidence at the same time. Love the piece you made with this stamp, it’s superb!
