Home By The Sea..





This weeks Wednesday Stamper theme is Structure within your artwork.

I made this piece originally for Craft Stamper (so those that buy the publication may have seen this already), but they have a restriction on showing work on blogs for 3 months unless its a sneek peek etc. So its the first time on my blog. Now that time has elapsed, I can upload this.

I created structure and texture by punching holes and threading ribbon to create an impression of flowing water, along with circular mirror pieces, as its a Home By The Sea hanging.
