I was so honored when Roben-Marie Smith asked me if I would like to play with her new Mixed Media Essentials stamps and make samples. I put down a big sheet of bristol paper and grabbed my brand new spring colored ink pads (FYI - I am a big fan of the Studio G ink pads in the $1.50 bin at Michael's - who knew?!) I started experimenting and making notes on the sheet when inspiration came my way.
I kept playing and playing until both sides of the 11x17 paper were full. My samples have been finished for quite some time now but I just can't bring myself to throw this sheet away. There is something about it that just makes me happy. In fact, I keep adding to it as I work on other projects.
Sometimes inspiration comes from the most unlikely places.
