Blog: Handcarved Stamp

Love to be Home – Art Journal

“Oh, how she loved to be home!” – that’s me in the window ;)

For this spread I used acrylic paints and collage paper, but for the architectural elements I created hand carved stamps. I also filled in with some of my Fanfare stamps.

I’m so in love with our new home that it definitely inspired this page. So I put my Millie stamp in the window because every home needs some homebodies :) 

Here are some of the supplies I used:

At the Corner of Good and Bad – Art Journal

I had a lot of fun with this spread. I carved a big stamp of a building close by here in Jersey City with a mural by Shepard Fairey and used it for bags I made for the holiday market. But then of course I also wanted to use it in my journal.

I printed on a page that I had previously used as a “clean up” page and then painted over the tamped images with acrylic paints.

I added some hand drawn imagery and some of my Stamps as well

I love the contrast of very clean and fine line stamps and then the bold hand carved stamp. And all the texture – actual and optical that I created with brushstrokes, and spray paints.

That was fun :)

Here are some of the supplies besides Acrylic Paints I used for this spread:
