Me time Message #4 - Stress

For message #4 we needed to create a patchwork with a stamp. I didn't immediately know which stamp I would use so I browsed through my stampcollection and found a narrow text stamp which I never used before but thought would fit the bill. When I read on the package what was written on the stamp I couldn't believe my luck. My message to me is about stress and the stamp read: everywhere peace, everywhere tranquility. How perfect was this. To color in my patchwork I used some gel sticks, everybody keeps on saying how great they are and how creamy they are well it's all true. Some washi tape, an image of buddha and the quote You can do anything, just not everything (which is so true) and the circles in dimensional paint finishes of the piece.



It' such a fun project, we get clear instructions but still everybody creates such totally different pieces. If you want to see some of the others just click here.

    1. absolutely, I only stress myself out by willing to do everything, we need to be selective and also make sure we do things we are passionate about and not only "tasks"
