Mothers Hold Their Children's Hands, God Grant me the Serenity...,Live in the moment...

Robyn here, following once again in Holly's ink prints! If you haven't given this grid technique a try,I encourage you to do so!
I was on my way to a Fiber Arts Alliance gathering and wanted an easy to transport and stunning way to showcase the new stamps and how versatile they are.

I started out by practicing the technique using my brass rules and a grid mat to make my lines nice and straight. No measuring required with brass rules.
This is a 5 by 4  card stock with 3/4" squares

Then I got small!

I made 3 ATC's, starting with the individual words I pulled out of each stamp, thermal embossed in gold.
Then I stamped the Gingkos in VersaFine Olympia green( almost black- I'm allergic to black) and then my grid lines. I used the watercolors (i forget what-senior moment!) on the leaves.

 I colored with Distress Broken China and Wild Honey mixed with Scattered Straw.

I decided to mount the ATC's on a fan fold base bordered in
gold acrylic paint.

 The back was looking bare, so I added ATC's with the full quotes-keep it simple!

Hope over to my blog for a bit of a back story(pun intended!)

Please post your creations on our Facebook page. We love to see what inspires you!
Comments and questions always welcomed!
