Inspiration I've been avidly watching the events unfolding in Egypt in the last couple of weeks. I've read countless articles, downloaded several video clips and discussed it with as many people as possible. Possibly one of the reasons I'm so engrossed it is because just last year I learned about Mubarak's regime, and so it's really cool to see something that was taught to me as fact become completely torn apart. If that makes sense.
We're watching history in the making.
Technique This was a relatively simple stamp to make. I just took a stamp template, added the flag colours and words.
I would like to briefly point out that I do recognize that the revolution is far from over, even if Mubarak has stepped down. But I think this stamp could be useful far into the future as a piece of remembrance of this monumental event that we all witnessed together.
Well I haven't gone to Tahrir square....yes, I'm such a caword But I sat there all the time in front of TV, I don't know how or why, but I had a feeling we'll win The annoying thing is many people I know where against the revolution but after it won, they were with it XC I felt very angry!
It's pretty overwhelming to think that this is something that will be discussed for generations to come and we were here to see it. I'm anxiously waiting to see what kind of effect this will have on the other countries in the Middle East, now that their main stabilizing force is gone.
Oh geez, have you seen the most recent developments in Libya? :[ It's awful. That revolution's going to be a lot more bloody than Egypt's, and it's only beginning. I shudder to think what will happen if the US ends up intervening.
