First art of the year.



Last year I purchased some little wooden embellishments to use in my journals and craft work, I haven't done so yet but I was wondering if they would work as stamps.
I used double sided tape to attach them to some spongy polystyrene, applied acrylic paint with a brush and these are the results.


These are the stamps

On the lower part of the page above is a rolling stamp I made from the roll of a used tape and the left over scraps of fun foam from previous projects.
The picture also shows stamps made from corks. I used fun foam on these, the design was based on some doodles. I'm not very pleased with how these came out, I much prefer the original doodles, below, which are more detailed than the stamps. I'm not very good at cutting small on the foam.
