Well, once I got interested in art journaling I just started checking all kinds of websites, video clips, etc to find what I could. Cassy, my son's girlfriend, draws this really neat flower and I told her I wanted her to teach me how to draw it. Then I decided to look on youtube. So you guessed it.....I started drawing simple flowers and then just kept adding little things as I see ideas. Ok, I'm starting to ramble here so long story short.....after I did the foam stamp video my mind got to running all over the place. Why could I draw a flower, put it on the thin foam, indent the places on it to make detail, and make my own custom stamp? As I have been doing quite often A.T.(After Tracy lol) I tried it! I'm actually happy with it. Here are a couple pictures below. The first one is the flower I drew using a graphite pencil. I then burnished it onto the craft foam, used a sharp pencil to press the details into the foam and cut it out.
Tracy will be doing her own art show this weekend and I couldn't be happier for her. Check out some of her work here.....http://www.tracyweinzapfelstudios.com/
