Artist Trading Card Daily – 108

July 23, 2015 — 3 Comments

Does happiness find us or do we seek it? That is the question.

Well, I think that the free stamp that came with the September 2014 issue of Craft Stamper magazine may have given me a clue…

Seek it – I know that I do but as I am sure some of you may know, finding it can be like seeking a rare species of fish in a whole ocean (sorry for the reference, I have just been watching a fascinating documentary of rare fish and how there are still some species that we have only glimpsed a couple of times but that have been around for millions of years).

So anyway, my mind being the way that it is, I came up with this.

Artist Trading Card Daily - 108.1

You’ve probably guessed all of the metaphors involved here so the ‘why’ is covered so here is the ‘how’.

The background was Colorburst. This was an off cut again that I deliberately cropped down to make the crashing waves – afterall, it’s a tumultuous and constantly churning beast through which we search …

I glazed it with some clear nail varnish to make it look a little wetter.

Then I added the stentiment. I popped it at the top rather than the middle or bottom as I wanted it to be separate from the ‘sea’. It also meant that the waves that were rising were only just reaching it, signifying the struggle to find happiness – oh, apparently there more metaphors, lol!

Anyway, there really wasn’t any more to this one. Plain and simple.

What did you think? Did the message mean the same to you?
