Good morning everyone! I hope your week went well and have some great plans for the weekend. The kids are home from school today due to hell knows what…oh yes, teacher work day. I just love those work days. Only 3 of them so far…3 months into the school year, and a couple of more next week. Well I’ve put a couple of the kids to work this morning, prepping for this month’s classes and helping clean the house! I guess all isn’t lost to days out of school.
I love coloring realistic images and the new stamps from DoveArt Studios are just fantastic.
This stamp is called Honey Run. What a fantastically versatile stamp! I colored it up for the Fall season, but it could just as easily be colored for any of the seasons.
I know a lot of my students are initially intimidated with realistic stamps. Just a couple of tips…use a reference photo if you’re unsure of color or shape and break the image into smaller manageable sections and just give it a go. After all, it is just paper and markers, and we aren’t creating world peace or performing life saving surgery…it’s okay to toss the paper in the trash and just try again.
Thanks for swinging by today and enjoy the rest of your day!
