Day 15 Lisa's Mish Mash of Happiness & Inktober "scared"
This is one of my favorite stamps and I'm not even a shoe person. The only scary part is wearing shoes with heels that high! Back in high school, I would wear platforms because I didn't want to hem my pants. Wearing those shoes made me over 6 feet tall and for an Asian girl, that's super tall.

Flat Fish Paper Arts was born many years ago when blogging first started. My family did a lot of camping and diving along the California coast. California halibut are huge fish that start out as any normal fish. As they age, one eye will start to move to the other side and the halibut will become flat so it can lay on the bottom of the ocean with both eyes facing up.
I always like the idea that we all start out the same but life experiences slowly changes us. In my case, my creative talents went the way of paper arts. Flatfish are always looking up when they mature and as with any artist, we see inspiration in everything around us - always looking up.

Years ago a local dive shop had a photo of a diver who caught a halibut so big he had to throw it over his jeep to take the picture. Our little spoof with our daughter sitting in her toy jeep with dad's halibut on the hood. 1987
