It doesn’t matter what stamps you have they can all be used in your art journal.     How to Art Journal with Stamps? First I started with the background.

This is the point when you need to decide the theme of your page. I wanted to do a page about rain so I drew the rain drops and they were the only part of the background …

Stamp Carving Tutorial

Remember the Carving Your Own Stamps post? Now it’s time to for the full step by step Stamp Carving Tutorial. If you’re still in doubt I suggest reading the first post on stamp carving. If that will not convince you to give it a try then nothing will. It’s affordable, easy and the possibilities are endless.        Stamp Carving Tutorial The first step is to decide what kind of stamp you want. There are two options: draw your own design or transfer a printed design. ***A very important thing to remember about printed images. If you print an image from the internet it probably has copyrights. That means the design rights belong to someone and you can’t do anything without their permission.
