I am working on the floor as I am trying to tidy stuff away to get out the items I need for my next project. Why am I sharing this???? Well it is the Wednesday mad dash around the globe to snoop some workspaces. Dash to Mrs Dunnits blog to join in.
These are some journal pages I made for a swap about the things we like.
If you visit me please leave a comment and I will return the favour. I will also try and visit some different blogs this week.
Home made string stamps. I covered this topic a few years ago on my blog. I made a couple of new ones. The top right is made on foam core board which is an ideal way to mount stamps. It is available in large sheets from art shops and can easily be cut with a Stanley Knife. Cover your mount with PVA and glue on your string design. You need to keep pressing it down till it sticks properly.
Home made funky foam stamps. These are cheap fun and easy to make and an ideal project for children.
Plan your design and draw with a biro. Press as hard as you can to make the indentations for your design. I made all mine 6 x 4 inches for backgrounds but you can make them any size.
To ink them up lay the foam stamp face up and slide your inkpad across the stamp and then tap more ink to make sure it is covered. Lay your card on top and brayer over it to transfer the ink. peel it off carefully.
You can also die cut the foam and draw some accents on it with your biro.
This stamp is made by cutting up rubber bands and glueing them to thick or corrugated card or foam core board.
I used a couple of metallic inkpads for the print.
