I am an Artist

When you have lost your mojo many of you turn to your favourite designer for a well needed injection of creative ideas. Well, I turn to Wendy Vecchi who is, for me, incredibly inspirational as well as being a seriously nice person. Not a bad combination!
There are a few challenges about that also help channel my thinking and so I knew that I had to try and make something to enter. So using stamps and Art Parts I have had great fun making this! 
I used Jet Black Archival Ink, various Distress Stains and Inks and clear embossing powder as well as several of Wendy's stamp sets. I have absolutely loved making this, I hope that comes across! And thank you Wendy - my mojo has returned after being MIA for about 7 weeks! Phew!


I am entering this into:
Snazzy's February challenge - Studio 490
Everything Wendy VecchI's MAC #35 to "make a custom epoxy embellishment"
Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge - Anything goes!
Signature

Gabrielle...I love your Wendy Art Parts piece this week! Love the concept and love the way you carried out such a cool design! If you ever needed to be reminded that you're an artist...this would be the perfect thing to look at and remind you! It's a wonderful piece! Thanks for sharing it with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

This is great Gabrielle! I love that vintage delivery van and how you've got 'ART' coming out of the ink bottle. The Artist definition is great and just right to remind you when Mr Mojo does another runner (as he does now and then for us all). Lovely, lovely piece and thanks for joining in with us over on the Snazzy's DT blog. Good Luck in the draw.

Hugs
