It might be a bit obvious to those who have been visiting here for awhile that I do like to utilize all of the rubber from any sheet I ever carve from. Maybe it's the culinary training and years in food service that I have the 'waste not, want not' consciousness. Being convinced to throw away or let go down the drain as little product as possible. It's called getting a high yield from your goods. So I guess that carries over into my art making world as well.
After transferring my image from tracing paper onto the rubber in the best fitting space, I cut it away from the larger piece.
There are always scraps from this process and hold on to all the bits and pieces from the rubber I cut away.

Tap Tap Tap....Is This Thing On?
Okay good....where were we?
So, the last time we spoke I was telling you all about my first 100 Day Project titled Scribble Stamp Collage ... I hate the word 'challenge' when it comes to these things, sounds too painstaking.
Well, I started and completed it but, FIRST in the category of Better Late Than Never,
I was published!!!Dawn Sokol has a new book
"A World of Artist Journal Pages"
and I have two pics in there.
Thank you Dawn and her publisher
Stewart Tabori & Chang for including me in this terrific collection.
It's full of inspiring creations in art journals from artists from 30 different countries.
And just because you tuned in today I am sharing the link to purchase it here.
If you are an avid art journaler like I am
you will be glad to have this book.
Back to #ScribbleStampCollage my #100DayProject on
This was a terrific way for me to stay connected to the world while I took some time to destash and reorganize my studio. Pictures will come, I promise.
I primarily used my Moleskine notebook, and my Toned Tan (which is my new second favorite sketchbook, Moleskine will always reign supreme) and Toned Gray sketchbooks by Strathmore.
This was a great exploratory and simple project for me that
I enjoyed more than I anticipated.
You certainly would want to follow me on
Instagram just in case I decide to do something else like this
Oh, what a great way to start the Summer.
thanks to all the goodness in the world that this happened.
Since I am always carving stamps I decided that it was time for an apple.I know? Can you believe I didn't have one?This is on MooCarve.
After I carved it I played.
Something else new....
is my hand stamped patterned paper
available for instant digital download in my Etsy shop.
I have five available now and zillions more on the way.
So don't hesitate zip on over to my shop and grab some of these lovelies.
