Skill: Beginner

Do you sometimes wish you could turn your stamp’s image around?
It is easy to do with this fun technique. I tried it with a seagull stamp on my travel journal.

Another tip: Tap your Tack ‘N’ Peel covered handle on your shirt to add fibers and make it less sticky if using it for the mirror stamp technique!

Time: 30 Minutes

Do you have a stamp and wish to use only a section of the image?  Rather than trying to not get ink on a section, you can cut it. So many stamps can be turned into 2 or even 3. You can use sharp scissors but be very careful. Do NOT cut your lovely fingers!

Mail Art! Sending All My Love by Renee Zarate

Who doesn’t love to get a piece of Mail Art by snail mail?  Not only do the postal workers have fun looking at it but you have a bona fide work of art to send to an artsy friend.  Just make sure there aren’t any bits and bobs that can become detached along the way.  What a fun way to send your love!  This envelope has faux postage but you can adapt the idea to suit your needs.

More loving inspiration!
