A Poem, by Mary Gunn FUNN
There once was a mule named Brightie.
He wore a light reflecting halter all nightie.
Then he gained lots of weight.
Which sealed his fate.
Now Brightie’s whitey is much too tighty.
Whites – there is so much I could say, but maybe my limerick has already said enough!
Here are some FUNN tips about “whities”.
In art “white space” is the area without color. It can add interest and be effective, but too much white space can add boredom. White space gives rest to the eye, but we don’t want our art to make us sleepy!
By the way – look closely at the butterfly bodies for a FUNN surprise!
White can add a crispness and sharpness to a project, too. Here I’ve used White Daisy with the Close To My Heart July Stamp of the Month for a festive feel. The blue is Moonstruck and the red is Holiday Red. Doesn’t this card snap us to attention?
This is the same card using Colonial White which has been distressed with Desert Sand ink for a vintage feel. Colonial White is a creamier, more gentle white. It goes well with an aged look.
The blue is Outdoor Denim and the red is Cranberry.
FUNN Tipp – to make the “AMERICA” in 2 colors – ink the top of the My Acrylix stamp in red and the bottom in blue. I hope that, unlike mine, yours will be straight! ha. The edge closest to the hinge on CTMH ink pads is straight and the best for such inking.
So here’s to Brighty and Whites! Hope your day has ink and FUNN in it!
