Birch Tree Art Print
I normally would never speak out about politics especially through social media in particular but this year's election has placed its presence in our homes, our workplaces and our schools. It's hard to avoid and even more so difficult to not form an opinion, so I'll say this...
In light of all the political division in our country it's important to remember that we are and will always be a people of a certain resilience, survivors and hopefuls. That we are stronger together in a world where literary themes are not just devices of good storytelling but allegorical of our actual lives, good versus evil, love conquers all, light through the darkness, knowledge versus ignorance. And even though not all stories end well, let's use them as a lesson, let's learn from them whether the outcome is good or bad because it's only through our experiences that we learn to fight for what is right, that we face the darkness in order to see the light, and that we finally can see that love and acceptance conquers all.
My Speedball stamp is one of my most favorite things, a printing block is so versitle and easy you use. You could make your own personalized Christmas cards that no one in the world will have! Make prints over and over for many projects with a ton of personality.
I know it's a little early for snowy scenery but hey, Thanksgiving is already around the corner and the winter months are soon to follow. Like I said I can't get enough of this birch tree print.
You can check out my birch tree tutorial here, I created a Halloween image with it, but here you can see a peaceful winter scene, and just how fantastically adaptable a carving can be! Add other details like animals, background or even some text. I sprinkled on self adhesive flock immediately after I peeled the paper from the block. The flock sticks to the wet paint and creates this fuzzy, three dimensional quality to this beautiful art project representing serenity and peace!
