We don’t even know how strong we are until we are forced to bring that hidden strength forward. In times of tragedy, of war, of necessity, people do amazing things. The human capacity for survival and renewal is awesome. ~ Isabel Allende
Yes, because sometimes you just need to say it like it is.
The layout is this week's CAS(e) this Sketch. If you've followed me for long, you know I'm not a fan of glitter (hate the mess), but this awesome glitter tape is amazing. Not a single sparkle leaves the tape ... all of that gorgeous glitter stays on the card (this is black & red ... I want more colors now). I also added some NYC Washi tape, because I like how the buildings grounded the design.
I thought about searching for my wood grain papers, but instead decided to try a little abstract water-coloring. I used three different paint colors on Kraft cardstock (something I'll have to do more often ... love the effect, especially with the autumn hues).
I had no idea how long mail would take to get from Australia to Iowa ... but my long awaited stamps from Kellie Stamps finally arrived today. I used them for some Dare to Get Dirty Challenges as well as this week's CAS(E) this Sketch.
