We are waiting for the second installment of her biography. But,
she has had a busy year. Surgery on her stamping hand curtailed
her output for a while. (See the picture to the right...HOT OF
THE PRESS!) meant EVERYTHING was on hold for a while.
As soon as we can talk her into it, you'll get to hear the "Elizabeth
Perini Story" in her own words. Watch for the addtion to
A helpful hint from Elizabeth...Need a shadow stamp? Check
your design. You may be able to just turn it over and print the
back side....to get a "color spot" to stamp over....particularly
since often exact register is not required. This won't work for
all images but does just fine with a surprising number of them.
Of course the back of the rubber must be clean and adhesive free
and fairly smooth. Remember though, you're not looking for "perfect"
and this will work quite often.
One of gg design's images bears Elizabeth's name. She had asked
for a long time for sunflowers. Inadvertently, when the illustration
was posted it said "Elizabeth's Sunflowers" so
that is the designation.
Old Soles is also closely associated with Elizabeth. After
a telephone discussion that wandered to interesting art class
exercises, including what great subjects old, tired shoes made--a
package arrived--with Elizabeth's gardening shoes. The result
was the "tired tennies" which Elizabeth has used
in a very unique way. Check out Christmas
Carved to see what she did with them.
Making "favorite image" pick was easy for Elizabeth.
She knew immediately her choice was the original Calla Lilies.
It was one of her first purchases and is still one of her favorites.
