Seeing 20/20 ~ New Hand Carved Rubber Stamp



Trying to work through my Speedball rubber scraps on this one. I found that the rubber was starting to crumble, I salvaged it as best I could though. Sometimes humidity can effect the durability of the sheets. I think it turned out just fine though.

I’ve collected 50s-60s eyewear, so this stamp fits right into my odd collecting habits. I found the source image on Pixabay, which is an mazing copyright free source. 

I hope you enjoy and keep making!

Faux Leather Mini Journal







I ran across an amazing tutorial for making Faux Leather from craft paper, Modge Podge, Distress Ink, & my Sizzix Big Shot. From the outcome I made the wonderful mini journal pictured above. This will be hitting the post soon to a wonderful Mail-Art friend.

Further Up & Further In,


BTW: Shown above is the tutorial I watched from LorriMarie Jenkins

Junque Journal Front Cover Redo


I had to redo the front cover after a mishap with the sealing medium, but that's perfectly okay. I like this version better anyway.

Go paint something,
