Emily won us over with her mixed style of sweetly simple and fun eccentric. She has been an enthusiastic part of our DT! Thank you Emily for the time that you have spent on the Sassafras DT. We appreciate you!
This canvas hangs in my bedroom and I get to enjoy it every day. I made it three years ago, starting with one pack of the Chipboard Numerical Stickers, then adding bits of a second to make a rectangle shape. I smeared the canvas with a thick layer of gesso and randomly placed the numbers and symbols. When I saw the pack, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it, and it turned out exactly as I'd hoped. I think I love it more and more every day. When I don't have my glasses on, it's a lovely blurry painting with strips of red, yellow, and blue. While putting it together, I subconsciously put colors that blended well into strips. I think that's kind of cool. When I have my glasses on, I'll try to find the two matching numbers or symbols, it never fails to entertain me. I have loved Sassafras ever since I started scrapping 6 years ago. I will admit that some the designs made me tilt my head and go hmmmm.... But every time I made something with Sassafras, it seemed to just fall in place like it was meant to be. That doesn't happen for me. I am a push paper around kind of scrapper. Layouts rarely fall together in 20 minutes. When I made the team earlier this year, I could hardly believe my luck. It was the perfect fit, and Rebecca and Tim, I will miss this company. Thank you for a delightful few months. Thank you for brightening my scrappy life!
