DO I LOVE YOU? My Entry to Stampotique DT Call...

I have decided to enter a Mixed Media Piece to The Stampotique Designer call, although it is largely known as a Card Site - but a vewy vewy FuNkY card site!  My Exclusively Card Site Blog is new, and is  I'm not so sure why, other than instinct, I decided that doing this piece was what was in me when I knew Stampotique had this call; I have long admired the company, its images and DT samples and I imagine it is my own inner rendition of what the company stands for - innovation, freedom of character and living out of the box.

So without further adieu...My Blog post.


It could be of the self.
It could be about a person, a place or a thing.
It could be both.

It is a deadly question.

It leads to pain.
It leads to bewilderment.
It leads only to ultimate suffering.

There is only one way to achieve the state of peace.

There is only one way to the state of calm.
There is only one path that leads to serenity.

I tell myself:

"Either stop asking the question.
Or be sure I love it all."

Then I will have the answer.


p.s. On another note,  I've been blessed! An Inky Situation put my art below on their Facebook Page   Wahooeeee!!!  Thanks so much guys and gals!!! xox

  24. Samara, my one regret in earning a spot on POP is that I won't be sharing it with you. I love the way you yourself share your soul with your art. Complimenting me on my projects and posts is like the pot calling the kettle black. I know a soul sister when I see her art. Please make sure you follow my blog and I will yours so that we stay in touch...please!
