"Making Your Own Stamps"
I made a new stamp over the weekend, my very first handmade stamp. After this handmade stamp was made I created a border around my two page journal spread. These photos show the process in making this stamp. I started by using some Sculpey clay I just happened to have in my studio. The only problem with using clay is that the stamp doesn't bend with the surface you are working on so I found myself pressing against the paper behind it with my hand to ensure the ink was leaving the stamp I intended it to. I will be experimenting with different material for making stamps and will share with you each time I do. Have a great day everyone!!
