52Q: 26 (walls)

52Q just gets better and better! the questions, i mean. although secretly...i have been kind of pleased with my last few cards. partly because of how they've come out, partly just because it's SOOOOOOOO VERY FUN to be working on a free-form, no-pressure, art-play basis again! thank you very much, emily falconbridge, i needed that! ♥

question 26: "on my walls i would write..."

(prima patterned paper overstamped with a cherry arte crackle stamp; alphabet stamps of unknown origin; dmc embroidery floss, prima flowers, kaiser pearls, ranger ink, tombow green marker, tombow monoadhesive runner, diamond glaze)

"do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

(not to get all metaphorical on ya, but i kind of hope i *AM* writing this on the walls of my life!)

this is one of my favorite cards so far. (though sadly i just could not get a good pic!) making it was sort of like a zen meditation. not that i have ANY IDEA what a zen meditation is like...helllllllllllo, hyperactive girl here!...but i did find it both soothing and satisfying to play with alphabet stamps...and then pierce holes...and then hand stitch around each side...and at the end have it be prettttttttttty darned close to the picture in my head.

if i was gonna be PICKY... (who, me??!) ...i would say that in retrospect i wish i had done evenly spaced stitching around the edges. (though i will definitely use the wonky/uneven style again on something else!)

but hey...we live and learn, right?!
live and learn. ♥
