I made my very first hand-carved stamp with a Pink Pearl eraser and an blade #11 Exacto knife. Yup, there will be no licensing contracts coming my way for it, to be sure, but hey, to me it's huge because it was a fear I had that I overcame.
Last fall, one of the "courses" in my little semester of online art school was studying Lynne Perella's book Artists' Journals & Sketchbooks. Actually, it was there, IF I had the time, which I didn't. But, the book study group is still going on and I've saved the lesson plans in hopes of seeing how far I can get with it, maybe catch up.
I'm kinda tired of painting pages. Seems like I'm not alone, either. More and more people are paper-piecing, dry collaging, layering papers and found objects, sewing them on, attaching with metal embellies or just adhering with gluestick. I plan on incorporating my stamping, drawing and smaller art pieces. Whatever strikes me. I'm gonna try to get one A page done by month's end...at least get it started. And I'm not going to re-bind the book with my Bind-It-All until I finish it.
I haven't really had a chance to find Tigger-themed items for my ABC journal yet, but I did chance upon the sweetest tiger stamp to use. It's a Dee Gruenig Posh Impressions stamp and should add to my logo-ing nicely. I know I can find Jolee embellies that are Tiggery, but I'm also gonna be on the lookout for stickers and anything else. Let me know if you see anything Tiggerish out there, okay?
