The leaves on my little tree are popping out, and the pretty pink blossoms are almost gone. Sure wish they lasted longer! #spring
Happy #April, and welcome to my #calendar page! I used the open egg stamp from Stampa Barbara and stamped several eggs on some patterned paper. The grass stamp is also Stampa Barbara, and the sentiment is from Memory Box. Cheers! #happyeaster #2017

A is for April


For this year's Blogging from A to Z Challenge, I decided to try to do some rubber stamp art projects, either a page of my new art journal, or a greeting card, or just a fun design I've had swimming in my head. It's a lot of work - a LOT more than just taking photographs, which is what I usually do! - so I'm not guaranteeing I'll make every single day, but I'm sure going to try!

Anyway, for the letter A, I have my April calendar page:


So, it's pretty simple and easy to do: I stamped my empty egg stamp from Stampa Barbara on patterned paper, heat embossed them with black embossing powder, because the ink I chose to stamp with was smearing, and cut them out. I glued several of them randomly across the bottom of the page, and added some stamped tufts of grass (also Stampa Barbara), and some ground with a brown coloured pencil. The sentiment at the top is from Memory Box, and I purchased the blank calendar at Enjoy! Cheers!
