Transferring Images

This morning I carved a very special stamp for a special little someone using his very own handwriting. I discovered transferring images when I made Mom's sock monkey stamp the other day, designed from a photograph I had taken of an actual sock monkey I had made for her.

The monkeys often take their Legos and Minifigs along with them and I worry that they'll get lost. I hope this little muslin bag does the trick in keeping them safe!

Yep, my two little monkeys busy busy with all of their creativity. Plants vs. Zombies has been their "thing" this week. They've been researching images, drawing and coloring pictures to cut out and play out their adventures. I simply LOVE them both to pieces!!!

So cute!! You are talented.
(Isn't this how they used to make newsprint and books and such?)

Thanks, Misty! You know... I haven't researched letter pressing and such but I'd imagine you are right. Me, I'm just sort of making it up as I go along. It seems to be more fun that way!

I made a stamp print last year in art class, but we had to carve it out ourselves. Mine was of a Hershey's Kiss, and then we made pop-art prints in different colors, like Andy Warhol's work.

I want a minifigure bag!! :D

Didn't you think it was FUN to create your very own rubber stamp?! Imagine the possibilities!
