Hello Everyone
PaperArtsy Everything Art stamps have been a bit of a revelation for me.  Like many of you, of course I was drawn to them but never imagined I would ink them up as often as I have been doing. The paint tube with the word courage, it seemed appropriate to include it in this project for my first post of the New Year for That’s Crafty.
When I made this, I never gave thought to the fact that it was this week that Wanderlust 2017 kicked off !
What courage will you seek in 2017 with your art?blog8janlynnem

Thank you so much for your visit.

    We all need courage Lynne, from whatever point we are starting the year. This is a great take on the New Year. It sort of speaks to me. Here I am, take me as you find me. I am comfy with my own spirit but also need reassurance. Just love the whole concept. Thankyou for this! Xx

    It is wonderful Lynne, the denim looks fantastic with your pocket and inside the tubes, and that important word, we sometimes have to face,– have courage in what we do and how we live !! in big and small. I love all the details and the white gessoed fabric, and all your torn pieces of fabric. xx

    OH the blues and twinkling stars along with every lovely detail really speak to me in this creation dear Lynne!
    I recently treated myself to two new cups.
    One says Cup of Peace and the other Cup of Courage.
    There were others that were tempting me too but I resisted 😉
    Happy Healthy New Year to you my talented and prolific friend.
    Thank you for your visit and precious words too.
