I have great memories of my elementary school art class.Â The room was dark and and crowded, but our teacher always had the greatest projects for us.Â One of my favorites was linoleum print making.Â You trace a picture onto a linoleum block, carve it out, roll paint onto it and press it onto paper, or a t-shirt…. I loved the detailed process and the “cooooool” moment when you get to see the final picture.
Stamp making is almost the exact same process.Â I’d not done it in a long, long time, but I was inspired when I visited winemakerssister’s fantasticÂ etsy store and fell in love with her stamps!!Â I totally stole some of her ideas!Â But, I’m going to have to go back for this mug!Â (Hahah!!Â All you knitters out there get it!)
Kaia loves stamp making, too.Â Today she carved me an adorable flower!
I see some stamped holiday cards in the near future!!
