Handcarved Stamps and Under 30 Journal Prompts

Back with more handcarved stamps. I can't seem to get enough of it these days.

Here are a few tips. After experimenting with several brands of soft carving material, I found that Mastercarve cuts the smoothest and crumbles the least. It's generally available in art supply (not craft stores).

I like the Stayz-On brand stamp pads, block printing ink or acrylic paints as these allow you to paint over without smoodging the stamped image.

Using dye-based ink pads is nice when you DO want to smoodge the image. *You do know what "smoodged" means right? smearing, smooshing, etc.
I'm gonna put the growing list of Under 30 Minute Journal Prompts right here on my website from the main page it'll be under Journaling*Fun stuff. There is a new idea about making foam stamps; the tutorial is here.

Have fun.

It is unlikely air conditioners only mover air and do not adjust its
temperature. With the same appliance you can provide
comfort as well as light the room with it. that your
