September 2015: Mary Waspe

15.Spotlight.MaryW.1I have been stamping since 1993, and currently my favourite technique is colouring with Copics. I have been doing umpteen lessons and some times get very frustrated with them. Then I love a love hate relationship…

I’ve used a digital stamp from Aurora wings, in 4 different sizes, to show how versatile a digital stamp can be,..they were all coloured with Copics.

I am still drawn to Oriental art. Having grown up in Asia, and now I have a Vietnamese daughter-in-law…so now I can add another grand baby to my little collection… Her Name is Kate Rose, and she was born on Christmas Eve 12/24/14…to Mark and Cam….They recently got married in Vietnam on 4/11/15 with all the bells and whistles..I amazed myself and everyone there, as I did a speech  in Vietnamese which no one knew about.  My grand kids are now Thomas 11 Charlotte 9 1/2 and Kate 6 months.

    Okay, Mary. It’s time to stop taking classes and start teaching them! Your project pieces are just beautiful, and very different with the same image. I well remember your frustration when you started with your copics, and I smile every time I see one of your masterpieces! You are and have always been an inspiration. Congratulations on being in the spotlight officially. Any time you share a piece of your work, you are in the spotlight naturally – right where you belong.
