Gift for a sick friend


One of my art friends is battling with health issues. A group of us decided to put together a special gift for her. Each of us will create a page which will then be put together into a special book of well wishes for her. As I know she loves vintage I created my page in vintage style. The background was created with tissue, texture paste, gesso, acrylic paints and a paper napkin.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
