Dream State



After the release of Art Journey's latest stamp images at this weeks Art Journey weekend in Sleen, Holland, the design team can now reveal ideas they've put together using them (if they are not online yet they will be any time now).

I've made a few items but will show them over a few posts, beginning today with the first piece I made- 'Dream State'. I tried to portray a dream like quality, all intertwined, ....a bit echoey. Do you get what I mean?



I hope you like it.
The edge of the frame is stamped with the tree branches.



For other items made by the team please check out their blogs which are listed on the Art Journey Designers blog.

Jo, I saw this stamp used by Willy Anderson earlier today and was struck by how lovely it is! I love your artwork and stamping the frame is a wonderful touch.

I don't know if I mentioned it before, but I saw some of your lovely photos on TV (weather...) and heard what you said about care services and impending cuts. I couldn't agree more. Looks like we'll have a fight on our hands though.
