Getting Started

Posted by Paper Trail Studio on 2/04/2009 09:36:00 PM

So I think I've gotten the hang of things and ready to get started.

These babies were added to my little shop today:
Damask patterns
Damask is usually not my cup of tea but there was just something about this one that caught my attention...could it be that crown!
Going to start a project with a smaller brown pattern one and will post that once it’s finished.

Another thing I can't seem to stop making are these:
Geninne's Art blog is one of the sites I visit often and she has this great tutorial on how to make basic shape stamps with materials as simple as an eraser.
I was inspired and those were created from these sketches:
It took a little getting use to handling the carving tool, but once I practiced making the first stamp I understood the technique better and was itching to make some more!

In the mean time I'll continue tweaking away here and at every other project surrounding me right now.

ooohh I like the look of that leaf stamp! You better not bring it by the store or it might just disappear. ;o)
