My granddaughter, Olivia, spent the night last night and we got up this morning and continued with the Prayer Flags for Her Grandma Darlene. I had some commercial foam stamps and some word stecils that were perfect for her to work with. The flag below needed a little something more and I was itching to use my new thermofax screen, so I added the little birds.
On this one we decided to have her write her name more than once so it became a design element.
I am continuing with my Home theme. My stamp did not take the lumiere metalic paints very well, so I stamped it again in a different color so there is sort of a shadow. Anyway that was the intent, successful or not. These are a great way to try our new products and techniques. I love, love, love my crab stamp. this is the first time I printed with it. It will be clearer when I print with ink.
This is the first print I made with the Kingfisher stamp, also. this was carved from linoleum, and once again didn't take the paint I used as well as I would like, but it will be great with ink. I am really pleased with this stamp, also. I had never printed with sequin waste before. I used it as a stencil and as a stamp. Again, not perfection, but experimenting with new toys.
And here is my partner in crime for the morning, Olivia, with all of the flags strung up behind her. I like them! I am probably through, now, unless Truxton wants to make some next time he comes to visit.
Here is Olivia with a piece of fabric she painted to take home to he Mother. I carved the leaf stamp.
