Farewell of MarIa Potapovich (mellpellmell).
Hi to all of you, mellpellmell is here for you today.

And today I'm going to tell you not only "hi", but "Goodbye"...
...because this post  is the last one that I have created as an official member of the ASC design team.

I'm a little sad, but so sometimes it happens ...

It was very interesting - to be here with you and work with wonderful stamps. In spite of my forgetfulness, Jennie has always managed to keep me in the plan (well, almost always) - special thanks to her for understanding, patience and organization! You're just a miracle!

And, of course, thank Jennie for her generosity and clear leadership, and the opportunity to work with her fantastic stamps.
I consider myself very lucky that I had this privilege - to be in such a wonderful team of designers.

Today I want to make a small flash-back - let us see with me, how that time has passed for me, and what work has appeared in the meantime.


The first thing I would like to remember once again with you - it is a regular notebook.

  And as you see - I've used just a single stamp to decorate it:

Here my "Bug's card":

  I've used the Encyclopedia Botanica stamps set  here

Gibson Girls Plate 1
Calligraphic Mat 
(stamping, masking, spraying, splashing... - it was fun!) is the Bloom shadow-box - I like to make them (maybe it's a mania?)...

And here is a one of my canvases. It's about girl's spring)))))

 I've used  Encyclopaedia Botanica Size A5

And of course the Botanical Plates 1 and 2.

Do you know I like  watercolor and ink drawing?
And  I like to add stamps to my watercolors.
I've used the Encyclopedia Botanica stamps set  again:

Mmmmm... Mixed-media. Yes, it's one of the greatest style, I think...

And here is the video of it's creating:

I've used Journaling Mini Words stamps set to make this card.

 This philosophical image are adhered on the big house, made ​​of gypsum.

  Encyclopaedia Botanica stamps set and Family Values

Oh, I nearly forgot!

Special thanks to all those who have left great comments and kind words to my post - these words graced my days!

I leave the team, but I'm still here - because it is a wonderful blog with an incredible amount of inspiration and positive!

Good luck and enjoy your creativity!
