Blog: Lady Liberty Foam Stamp

Better World – Art Journal

“It is in your hands to create a better world for all who live in it.” – Nelson Mandela

… Use your damn hands!

I used my new Lady Liberty foam stamp – a nice big stamp with the oomph that I wanted for this page. To get my color I rolled out two acrylic paints with a brayer – soft acrylic paints in teal and green – and then stamped. I wanted the look of some patina – like the statue itself.

I added some stars with my Star Tag rubber stamp.

…and used a Fude pen for the journaling.

Here are some of the supplies I used:

Scary Either Way – Art Journal

“It’s scary when things change. It’s scary when things stay the same.”

Isn’t that the truth.

For this spread I just stamped with different versafine stamp pads using my new Foam Stamps like the Church. I also used some of my other stamps like the Solid Triangle Small from Triangle Love and the Fan-fare rubber stamp set.

I filled in some of the details with markers like here in the Brownstone foam stamp.

And here is the Powerhouse foam stamp with some details highlighted.

And here is Row Houses looking lovely in yellow.

Here is a tip – After using ink, clean your stamps with water and a soft brush to make sure ink does not transfer to your next project or other inkpads.

    You get such a clear and complete image when you stamp.
    I have had some luck using Julie’s suggestion to stamp with a mat underneath, but I still get bothered by incomplete images.
    Maybe it’s the “perfect” side of my brain. I continue to strive to let go. Nice new set of stamps Nat!
