http://emptyeasel.com/2011/10/24/video-making-styrofoam-stamps-to-use-with-collage-paper-and-fabric/. The stamp above is a quick example I made to see how it would work using acrylics...Could be FUN! And, would have worked on my acorn piece had I chose to use it.
The second idea is very simple...I used a little hot glue and glued a stencil on to a square of 6 mm of fun foam. This is an excellent material to use as it washes easily! Even though stencils are very thin, they still have enough depth to make a stamp as you see below:
Alisa Burke. The process is simple...Using 6mm fun foam cut out a design on one and hot glue it to another block of fun foam. It is washable and durable!
Making your own stamps just increases the original material within your artwork, making it that much more desirable and HARDER to replicate...making it THAT MUCH MORE DESIRABLE...or so goes the theory! HA.
Next week I am excited to say I will be traveling to Omaha to see my now nearly three month old grandson...I am SOOOO excited to see he and my beautiful daughter and most wonderful son-in-law...I will be able to get NEW photos of this new little person we all love so much with his Nana...the last photo I have with him is right before I walked out the door in August (where I bawled like a baby for an hour as I missed them so much already!) lol
