This is to all of you, or that should be, any of you who do not believe you are an artist.
Let me share something with you. During a little e-mail chat with the lovely Shari, she called me an artist to which I responded that no, I am a stamper, a crafter but I am not an artist. I believe many of us are not comfortable with using the work artist. I even struggle to use the word art, more comfortable using the terms stamping/crafting. Every now and then I will try and force myself to use the art word but it doesn’t fit comfortably with me.
This was actually the second Guest Designer
project art, I made created (!) for Redlead Paperworks so it is long overdue being shared here.
If I were to quickly name two stamps which I immediately associate with Redlead it would be the Pixie Girl I shared HERE and also the girl from Shine On. I wanted to create a fun project and to say I had fun altering this paint brush of mine, which had seen better days, would be an understatement as I had so much fun. The downside was having to wait for the thick application of paints to dry because when I utilised the heat gun it was bubbling the paint too much for the appearance of this project.I like this little art sentiment She is a work in progress – that is exactly how I feel about myself. (Find this art sentiment HERE. as part of this wonderful stamp set.)Too much fun to stop at one side and I had to complete her story from being a work in progress to what she has become …
She is an artist.
Even after those few months have passed since I made this I cannot decide if I should have embellished it. I might well tweak it yet, time will tell!You can keep up-to-date with Redlead news by signing up to their newsletter which is where Chris and Sharon share their weekly news, artful creations and also announce their Stamp & Stencil of the Week.
