SPRINKLE LOVE by MEL HOOKHAM

...hello everyone, it's Mel here with my final piece as Guest Designer for the Artistic Stamper, it has been wonderful to be part of such an amazing team of super creative people, thank you so much Jennie and Emma for inviting to play along with you guys for the month of December...
...well I don't know about you but time has flown so fast this month and with the New Year fast approaching, it's time to reflect on what is important in life...
...this canvas was coated in PaperArtsy honeydew chalk paint, with snow cap paint dabber washed over the top...
...I used the A5 Border stamps around the edge in timber brown stazon,  I love the random circles on this versatile stamp...
...some crackle paint in broken china & frayed burlap hi-light the chit chat stickers...
...these gorgeous swirly bird nature stamps have been embossed in opaque white on top of calligraphic mat 12 stamped paper ...
...we can all do our bit to live in peace, with faith and good will, a sprinkle of love and of course art!...

...thank you for dropping by today...
...may love health & happiness be with you throughout 2013...
