Little Stamped Book

I took a class at Art N Soul stamp shop in Lacey, WA last night. I loved the sample book and had to try it for myself.
The pages are wood. First, we colored them with alcohol inks, added a stamp or two, and colored them in with pencils. I love the effect! And it was so easy and meditative....like zoning out with a great coloring book.  I need to keep an eye on their upcoming classes. What a fun group of ladies, too.
Here's how mine turned out. I'm pretty much done unless I add some words and text.








If you live in Washington, or pass through, this is a great shop. Try to make it on the first Saturday of the month for 'Recycled Rubber'....seemingly endless tables of stamps people don't use anymore, and are selling super cheap! This girl on the cover was one I bought last week for a couple bucks. I had a basket full of stamps! There are also all kinds of stamping accessories,too.
See you all soon! XO

These are so sweet. I do live in Washington but hardly ever make it south of SeaTac for the most part. What a great looking project!

This is so pretty. I need to try my inks on wood. So many things to try... so little time!
