Each Day by Lynne Moncrieff



This quote from PaperArtsy Eclectica Designed by Alison Bomber EAB17 spoke to me, for the days we are living in at the moment.  To support the theme of passing days,  a circle represents the moon and a dried leaf symbolising that during these days where for many, life is on pause, nature continues to march forwards.

I already had this ATC Chunkie assembled and lying near to me when I was preparing papers with paints, so what I did was simply wipe off excess paint from the brush onto the Chunkie. It was then laid aside for when I would have plans for it.

When that day arrived, I simply inked up small areas of the PaperArtsy Mini Stamps, stamping onto the Chunkie, simply to provide some stamped texture and to break up the painted surface. 

Of course, being a Chunkie, the stamping also appears on the sides.

As I appear to be working with circles repeatedly at the moment, I like to prepare a few from watercolour paper which I have prepared with Pearl Inks, then stencilling and cut out a few different sized circles to have to hand.

In the depths of my box of eco dyed/stained papers/textiles, I unearthed some fragments, layering towards left side of the front of the ATC Chunkie.

The quote was stamped onto scrap paper, curving the ends slightly and finally, a dried leaf.

Stay Safe!
