I Love These Stamps by Rae Missigman

Something special came in the mail awhile back and I am so excited to reveal it today. The uber talented, Rae Missigman and Roben-Marie Smith, asked me to play with a stamp line (that Rae designed). I love them! 


I so appreciate how the stamps are ready to use.
Just peel off the backing and stick onto any acrylic block.



Here I'm making the initial background. It's how I play as well as intuitively think about the next step.

I have a saying:

I eat color for breakfast.
Texture for lunch.
Stencils for dinner.
And for dessert, gesso with a splattering of gold paint.
Always.



I got so carried away that I forgot to take step-by-step pictures. OK that's a lie.
Things got real muddy when I added charcoal grey-blue paint. I don't know what I was thinking and then things started to go south.

So I had to salvage what I could. These circles were the result of an art rescue mission! Lol



Not only is it possible to sew directly onto your art journal, but it's fun! You kinda have to wrestle with the binding and try not to say swear words. Here, I simply connected the dots with an easy straight-stitch and left some of the strings hanging.



God hides in the details.



Thanks for visiting!

If you're interested in purchasing these stamps, head on over to Roben-Marie's shop here.
