Inspiration Avenue challenge of the week.. using a damask image in your artwork. It also fits the monthly Artists in Blogland challenge of "Soul". I like using challenges in making art because it provides a focus or set of limitations that helps to come up with an idea. Okay, so I *think* that is a damask stencil, right? I hadn't heard of the term before but I was comparing the images provided to my stencils and I'm pretty sure that is a damask. The colored letters below are old scrapbooking letters that I hadn't used and the black letters are these fun old rub-ons I had. An penpal from several years ago sent me a HUGE package of ones she no longer wanted. They are super old and the packaging must be from the 70's, but they still work. Also check out My Mojo Monthly.
A lot of people rave about Beth Moore. This is a book I read by her. Have you read any books by her? If so, what did you think?
