I like making birthday presents. It brings me joy in life.
Notebooks are happiness. They're a space to spill extra thoughts and images. They're a friend. They are meant to be messy.
What more could you want?
I like to buy plain brown paper notebooks and either draw phrases, verses, and doodles on them, or simply paint a small design like the one pictured above. It's super easy. All you need for a semi-uniform stamp is a new Number 2 pencil.
|Using a paring knife, cut 3 lines to create a triangle. Make flat cuts to remove the edges of the eraser.|
|Mix paint to the shades you want, and HEY, you've got a stamp. Practice on a notecard to get the opacity you want.|
Journal and stamp away, my friends! Birthday cards, notebooks, thank you cards, word art, paintings... experiment and enjoy.
Oh and do come again soon, it was so nice meeting you.
