remnants of art...

hello!
today is rubber stamp set #10...

this is called "remnants of art"...

starting @ the top is a nice skinny border,
"star mending cotton"...
it has lots of elements that can be used alone...
like the mini star...just use a circle punch...simple...
the rectangle 225...
and more...
it has nice straight lines, so it can be stamped on grungeboard & cut out, to create a dimensional embellishment...

another "ruler"...
this guy also has a coordinating art part...
or you can just stamp it, as is, for a border...
stamp it multiple times to create a whole background...
use the numbers alone, to highlight an age or date...

"out on a limb"...
just a fun saying for our art...

"success"...
simple, but TRUE...

"big girl panties"...
a little EDGY & fun...

and a giant background...
"ribbons & lace goods"...
is is an ad from a 1903 magazine...
I flat out LOVE it...

here's... "remnants of art"...


today's new ART PARTS set is called...
doorplates & keys...

that large heart shaped key is big...
it's 4 1/2 inches tall...
the heart opening is a fun spot for a mini collage...

this set is loaded with fun accent pieces...


and when is a doorplate NOT a doorplate?
when it's the neck for a mustache wearing queen...



hmmm...what else?

OH...today I do the final edit on Book #5...
that means I check for my typos...
make sure I didn't say anything too goofy...

Matt has done an awesome job getting it all formatted...
I'm impressed...

since the book projects use the new large art parts...
that means bigger projects with more instructions...
so this book is a whopping 49 pages...

as with book #4, there will be a separate catalog included in the package...

on a personal note...
Rick's brother was transferred to a major medical center yesterday with a medical emergency...
he's in ICU, waiting for the biopsy to be done...
we're hoping for today or tomorrow...

sadly, this sounds like a very similar situation to what my brother developed last year...
we did get to speak with his MD last night, so it's just waiting now...

an update about my brother, since lots of you have asked...

he's done with chemo...
PET scans have been good...YIPPEE!!!
he's back to work...
he has some complications from the chemo, which are annoying, but NOT life threatening...

his attitude is GREAT...
he never complains EXCEPT...

about the GROUND SQUIRREL ruining his GARDEN!
LOL...
PRIORITIES...

thanks for asking...

ok I'll be back tomorrow with more new stamps & another art parts set...

'til then...

make art!
