Madeleine Oh Madeleine!


Madeleine, one of the loveliest, most popular Claritystamps in the box.

Here's a piece of artwork I did a while back, using Zentangle in her hair.
Stamped her in black Archival, coloured her in with colouring pencils,
added the Zen with a black micron Pen.
William Blake's 'To see the World' is quite lovely, too.



But here's the good news of the day:
Ani at Clarity decided she would make a cool stencil.
And I agree!

I love, love, love that we are moving forward. To be able to take a stamp and turn it into a stencil is pretty cool. And to be working with young people like Jim and Ani, who can not only see it in their minds, but convert it to a usable piece! Lucky me, lucky Clarity World.
