And then, serendipity landed when Whimsey Stamps LLC's FaceBook page had a wonderful little image gifted for free to their viewers. I simply adored the little faerie with the cone flower!
Clearly, it was meant to be -- and -- so I did! :-)
To put the icing on the cake of my day, tonite I discovered I was one of three winners in a giveaway hosted by Design Memory Craft for a Ustream class taught by Jen Matott last night featuring their Faber Castell's Gesso product! We three winners will each receive a jar of the Gesso. I'm so excited as Jen showed us so many different and creative ways to use the gesso within our mixed media and art journals! As you know, I'm very familiar with gesso through my fine art paintings on canvas and have used it to provide an enhanced surface underneath my paintings. I never knew all the ways gesso could be used and felt I'd won just from the wealth of information Jen provided in her class ... so I consider this a bonus having won one of the giveaway prizes too! They are having another class April 11th. I already have my calendar set to remind me! :-D I hope you'll sign up for their newsletter too and stay abreast of what they have to offer all of us through those classes.
