Prompt 5 and Printing

5th July 2014

Greetings from sunny Blackpool!

I have had a very relaxing day, walking Jack, making stamps, printing with stamps and finishing my book sitting in the garden!

Prompt 5 :- books, film , tv

On January 1st I joined the 52 Book Challenge, to read 52 books in 2014. I enjoy a good thriller and this is the record, in my other journal, of the books I have read so far.....


....I have starred the books I have really enjoyed.

There is interaction in the group and because of this I have read books I wouldn't normally have chosen...

e.g. The Shock of the Fall, The Memory Keeper's Daughter, The Book Thief...

as they were recommended and I did enjoy them as my usual genre is thriller, forensic and crime.

My other books which I often read are about textiles and am building my collection....



...and Stitch and Workbox Magazines which were brilliant Christmas gifts!

I love books and even attended a Book Sculpture Course which was great fun.

I have a LOT of children's books which I loved reading to my youngest son and just can't part with them even though I am trying to clear the loft for my 'studio'!!!

I bought these last week, only 99p, and made some stamps....


....I stuck them on the back of my wooden stamps...



......then played....


..the pattern shows up on the second print and would be good to stitch....


......just playing with my hand made rubber stamp and a bamboo stick....


...think I will hand stitch this but wish I had colour washed the background first!


The last two examples were printed on hand made rag paper which has lovely texture.

Lastly I made my flower cards into a set of 6 note cards and will put in I D Designs...




A very enjoyable day...
