Playing with stamps
Sometimes when I'm making things I get too hung up on making finished products, ticking things off the to do list, and I forget to play around with materials and try things out. Rubber stamps, however, are great for just playing with, and I've been making some wonky little patterns with them and my watercolour pencils. Up the top here is my new gingko stamp that I made last night.
I reckon they look a bit like the designs on '70s enamel saucepans. These stamps were cut from erasers; I've just ordered some stamp carving blocks so I can make stamps on a bigger scale...and play around on a bigger scale!
Oh and I've just listed some new prints in my Felt shop too...you can see them here.
