One of the lessons in Journal Petite is lesson 15 Stamped Surfaces. Some of that is stamping with random things and some of it is about making stamps. Lord knows I have made a lot of stamps, but while having a bit of a tidy up in from of the windows to make the circle curtain less blocked by piles of things, I unearthed my carving tools. And I had a pack or two of little erasers to play with as well!
Now, these were not great erasers. The resulting stamps were also not great.
Compared to one I carved a long time ago fro a Speedball block – a world of difference!
I do quite like the little scallop and the way it stacks. I just need a better eraser I think. And maybe a bigger one?
Other parts of the lesson are about making stamps out of things like fun foam (tick) and pencil erasers (tick) and cardboard. Hummmm. Never really done that. So I think I will have a bit of a play with that over the weekend and see if I make anything I like.
I have also worked a bit more on my page of RAGE.
So yeah, just a few lines, but every time I go back to it and add another thing, I am consumed with rage all over again. Ironic it is “Independence Day” when it feels nothing like that.
Should be a new Art Journal Journey prompt so maybe I can find something positive to work on. Or not…
