An original hand carved stamp of a row of houses. Every one of my stamps is hand carved and a unique one off. I draw the design on the carving block then cut out the shape meaning no two stamps are ever completely alike. These stamps can be used with stamp pads or paints, just remember to wash the acrylic paint off before it dries otherwise it can clog up the stamp. The stamps can be washed in warm soapy water. They can be used for journals, art, collage, altered books, decorating papers…
A printmaking sampler
In the last few weeks I have been working on this series of booklets (each has 6 pages and is 36" long). They include several printmaking techniques plus other mixed media techniques: Gelli plate printing, collagraph printing, screen printing with Thermafax screens, stenciling, stamping, collage and pen work. I love using all of these techniques together. I think they compliment each other and look great together.

styrofoam printmaking tutorial
It's easy to make a print from a styrofoam plate or meat tray. Start by drawing a simple design on the styrofoam with a ball point pen. Impress the design just hard enough to make an indentation without going through the styrofoam. Next roll out some printing ink (or acrylic paint) on a tray. If you don't have a breyer you can roll the ink or paint with a small sponge paint roller. Roll out a thin layer of ink (or paint) over the styrofoam. Notice the ink lays just on top and doesn't flow…
