I just love having a trigger or a prompt for art, I do find that can really inspire me. The theme this month is "Our Story." I just happen to have a delightful new story in my life unfolding right now and so I chose to chronicle it through this piece. Each and every little do dad has a thought or personal meaning behind it.

#7 Our Love Story
The small blanks I altered from Vintaj are delightful. I stamped a background with permanent ink and then layered text on top. Some of them I made domed by thoughtfully adding on the Diamond Glaze, others were kept more even and flush.
You can see below that I added other inclusions to some of the metal blanks as well.
I was so super excited to find a use for the etched metal tiles that were added. I happen to be blessed with an amazing clan of local art ladies. During one of our meetings last year, Beth from Vintage Sweets, taught us how to etch on metal. When I heard the theme for the challenge I knew I wanted to use these. I added them to represent sweet nothings, love letters and the secrets new lovers share.
I hope you enjoyed partaking in this little bit of my new story. Thanks for all of your continued support and readership. It really does mean the world to me. Hopefully this piece will also trigger the full on creative mojo return.
