AED - impatient stamping

Today I learned what happens if you don't wait for your background to dry before you stamp on top of it.



The stamped images blur and sink into the damp background. This is useful information for those times when that is the effect I'm seeking, as well as a beneficial learning experience. And I did wait until everything was completely dry before I transfered the bee.

Good thing this project is Art Every Day and not Successful Art Every Day...

And I thought AED was an Automatic Electroshock Delivery device!

I often find mistakes become creative opportunities, as well as learning experiences.

Your bee is lovely.

Just change the definition of success...and you're good to go!

Let go of outcomes...

Oh, but success is in the eye of the beholder! You WERE successful, at what you created, despite the fact it didn't meet your expectations. And incidentally, it's lovely, as is all your work!

I still think it's very pretty!

I like it, but I guess you were going for a crisp. I think I'm going to have to keep this in mind because I have lots of images like yours, mostly because I don't have time to wait for things to dry; I'm much too last minute!
