Week One is Stamping.
I totally forgot about stamping!
Remember this piece? Probably not, it's from 2010:

I stamped with bubble wrap and a bottle cap, and painted on a stencil on a dot print strike-off from work.
On Wednesdays, there is a TDL One Hour Challenge which this week related to the stamping lesson.
Just my cup of tea -- a little creative play date, without a heavy time commitment.
Bonus: this week it's all analog. Deploy the ink and gouache!
I opted for finding six random items to use for stamping, and spending ten minutes stamping with each.
|Dessicated Lime, Golfball, Cork, Fake Fur, Shoe, Zip Cartridge|
Eighteen pages generated!
[Trying to find my acrylic paint was no walk in the park. But that's a topic for another post].
The goal was to see if the marks were different with an opaque medium.
Totally forgot how stinky acrylic paint is. Especially 30 year old puff paint. Not very opaque either.Results, 13 pages:

But I don't think I'm finished yet -- now I want to try the golfball with oil paint, because THAT is truly opaque.
Will add my results if I get to it.
