I was over at Traci Bunkers’ blog recently and she has set herself the task of carving a stamp every day over 30 days. I love handcarving stamps and decided to use the reverse of some of my eraser-carvings for a new batch. This is what I came up with this evening:
I’m quite pleased with all of those and I used them in this journal page. I really enjoyed this one – no tears, no angst – feelings under control for a change. I found the image of a mouse hanging onto a balloon in a magazine – he’s trying to reach some cheese in the ad.! I spotted its potential for journalling and used some sheet music scraps and a down-sized black and white photocopy of “Nearly Naomi” to represent me!
I don’t think it’s quite as balanced as I would like, but I am really happy with what I am achieving lately. I feel like I am making so much progress in my art journals and it’s really lovely to have new stamps to play with again!!
In fact, I have enjoyed this month so much, I have signed up with AJED again for February!! Go Julie! 🙂
