Sin City Stamp Line Design Team Try-Out Post
Hi I am Tamiko and today I am doing a mixed media page to try out for the Sin City Stamp Line Design Team . I have loved stamps and anything involved with them, from coloring to cardmaking, paper art, and mixed media projects and more. Today I just felt like trying something different. I wanted to show the use of stamps on my handmade papers. Handmade papers I created with my Arnold Grummer Paper Mill Kit.
Here I thoroughly inked my rather large stamp with some black archival ink.
Looks good on my handmade paper. The image does not have to be perfect, but it does need to legible.
Stamped a few more images, Loved the idea of the images on the cover of some small art journal signatures I may include in some happy mail to friends or keep for myself. Plus I like to try various types of platforms to stamp on. I finally colored it with some water colors and a waterbrush by Koi.
Here are some pictures below of my finished piece.. I hope you enjoy!!
On my art journal page I chose to write
Embrace Beauty. My word for 2015 is Embrace. This journal page is about Embracing beauty within our art or mind/spirits. Loving what you bring about you into any situation.
I hope I get the opportunity to design with Sin City Stamps, they are a company built with quality stamping and a talented group of people who I would like to experience working with. In the mean time, check Sin City Stamps. Look at all the lovely stamps they have! I know I am generating a wishlist of my own!! :) Happy New Year and thank you for stopping by!!
