Well, August has come to an end,
and with it Dina Wakley's
'Out of the Journal'
fun also draws to a close.
My final canvas is 10" x 8"
with an acrylic paint background
(blotted with a sheet of kitchen paper
towel, giving the swirly, dotty effect).
|(Like a Bird on a Wire)|
I hand carved the 'birds on the wire' stamp.
|(Birds close up)|
I should have pressed harder to get a
better print but decided to leave it as it was.
I had fun carving the stamp.
I got the soft cut mini sheets from
a seller on ebay, called handprinted,
who sent them superfast.
They really are easier to carve than the old lino sheets
I last had a carve-up with 100 years ago (approx).
Despite this, I still managed to skin a knuckle on my
right hand (don't quite know how!).
Thank you Dina for hosting this weekly fun
and thank you to everyone for your lovely comments :)
