The organizing jag continues. I have lots of good intentions, just slow progress. Today, I was organizing stamps, and had a pleasant surprise; the number and variety I’ve accumulated is more than I had thought!
I use stamps for metal clay texture and for etching regular metal. When I started in these mediums I purchased discounted stamps and would alter them to apply my own interpretation of what they should look like.
Recently, I found a free download of instruction on creating my own stamps. It turns out that the methods I was using to modify the purchased stamps are very similar to those used for creating a unique stamp. Now I already know, I will be able to turn my own designs into stamps and increase my tools without higher costs.
So, the discovery with the pleasant surprise? A stash of stamps I had purchased and squirreled away in an odd location. What is it they say about out of sight? Oh yes, out of mind!
