More stamps and junk journal workshop

I've had a few requests for more poppy stamps so there's a variety of sizes and shapes below. These are now available on my Etsy site






I had another great workshop on Saturday with a fabulous group of students. Sylvia and Jacky were especially entertaining when it came to adding their signatures into their journals. We were reduced to tears of laughter at one stage. They blamed it on the weather. You can visit their blogs and see their wonderful covers.
The temperature was in the low 30'sC, which was a bit of a shock as we aren't even into summer yet. We've had 35 C everyday since breaking all existing records for this time of year. The bush fires have started and we're all in preparation mode for the coming season.





This is the group from left Anne, Anda, Sylvia hiding behind Jacky, Fran, Margaret and Norma. Their covers are beautiful, they've now painted the spines to match the fronts.

Those poppy seed heads are such a lovely shape and your students work is wonderful. The journals look such fun to make and I am hoping to explore the use of fluid acrylic paints having at last managed to track some down. Hope you stay safe from bush fires.

Your stamps are fabulous and won't last long!!
Sorry to hear that the fires have started already- I pray that they won't be anything like last years blazes!!
Big hugs!

I always pray for my beloved Australia when the bush fires begin....yes I do understand that they are a process of renewal and yet the habitats to small innocents are lost. I wish I could have been in your workshop...the poppy seeds are magical. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Nice stamps Jo. I was at Neil arts there other day and saw some equipment to make stamps...I ended up putting them back thinking I need to finish my other projects first.
