Free to Play

Free, that is the inspiring word at CASology this week. I was sitting in my studio with my hand on my chin and I was thinking and thinking. Mr. George came in and said " you sure are thinking hard!" I told him about the challenge and that I couldn't come up with an idea. 

I went back and started pulling out boxes of old stamps, I was looking for a hand carved stamp of a horse that I made years ago, but it was no where to be found, instead I came across this funky little stamp. It just screamed FREE!! I used my favorite technique these days ombre stamping, but instead of stamping the funky fish girl from Picture Show- sorry they don't have a web site, I embraced my inner freedom and stamped them crooked. 

Finally do you remember when you were a child and everything you did was free and inspired- no constraints or worries you would do something wrong or someone might not like it- it was time to play and to enjoy the freedom of youth.

What an amazing, interesting image and sentiment. Wow, you're so right about the freedom we had as children (although we didn't appreciate it at the time). I would also love to see that hand-carved horse stamp if you can find it!(I make a lot of horse cards!) Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week!

Love this "freestyle" design! :) Your thoughts are so true! Oh, to have that kind of uninhibited spirit of a child again!
Thanks so much for joining us at CASology this week!
