ABC Wednesday - I and WOYWW
This week at ABC Wednesday, the letter of focus is I
I is for ice cream cone.
Here are the stamps I carved and the art tag I created.
Be sure to check here to see what others around the world did for I.
Each week Julia Dunnit hosts the meme WOYWW - where people from around the world are encouraged to share their work spaces and what they are working on.
Here is my dining room table after carving the stamps
I had originally planned to carve one stamp, but I carved too much away from the top so had to redo the ice cream section differently. But then it was easier to stamp different colours for the cone and ice cream. So that worked out in the end.
I also worked on a journal spread with a quote I've wanted to use for awhile in my art room in the basement.
Step one was the background. I used 3 different colours of acrylic paints spread with bubble wrap. Turned out darker than I'd planned, but I liked the textures.
I decided to add stencilled flowers next.
Final step was outlining the flowers and adding the quote by Leonardo Da Vinci - one I need to adopt!
