Damsel in Distress

Monday, July 21, 2014

I was inspired (again) by many of the techniques showcased in tim’s twelve tags of 2014 for July.

Summer Fun!  My garden is in bloom; damsel (and dragon) flies are flitting from flower to flower, life is good.

There are so many types of dies (and distress), I challenged myself to use as many different types as possible: Bigz Dies, Decorative Strip, Frameworks, Movers & Shapers, On Edge Dies; Embossing, Glitter, Ink, Markers, Paint, Stain…(sigh ~ having distress has never been so desirable)…

  12. This is the only film we walked out on at SXSW. There is nothing funny in this film. Someone told me it was supposed be a feminist version of a western arrival putlockers. If true, all women should be insulted by it.
