Starting A Journey With All My Stamps

Today is the start of another journal … but this one is going to be all about my Journey with stamps.

What prompted me to start another Journal … it’s because I’m addicted to buying beautiful rubber stamps but alas I don’t seem to use them as often as I should.  Going back to the UK this week and what’s at home waiting for me … yep you guessed more rubber stamps.

Below is a selection of gorgeous stamps which were part of my Christmas present and all are unused.  Not anymore!!!

 

No more will they lay gathering dust in my craft room, no more will they be un-inked for today sees the first two pages in my Stamp Journal.

There are just loads and loads of techniques that you can do with stamps so this journal will not include any paints, stencils, die cuts etc just inks, embossing powders and stamps.

Only two techniques were used on these pages, masking plus reverse masking.

With the Stampendous ‘Life Is Art Stamp’ I replaced the word paint with the word stamp.  Did a bit of reverse masking with the clock.

Making these two pages today gave me so much pleasure because I have at last, made a start, on those uninked stamps.

 Showing the stamps used on the two pages.
