    Daily Paper Prompt #47: Stamping Circles

    “There are all kinds of silences and each of them means a different thing. There is the silence that comes with morning in a forest, and this is different from the silence of a sleeping city. There is silence after a rainstorm, and before a rainstorm, and these are not the same. There is the silence of emptiness, the silence of fear, the silence of doubt. There is a certain silence that can emanate from a lifeless object as from a chair lately used, or from a piano with old dust upon its keys, or from anything that has answered to the need of a man, for pleasure or for work. This kind of silence can speak. Its voice may be melancholy, but it is not always so; for the chair may have been left by a laughing child or the last notes of the piano may have been raucous and gay. Whatever the mood or the circumstance, the essence of its quality may linger in the silence that follows. It is a soundless echo.”
    Beryl Markham

    The bottom of an espresso mug makes great espresso stamps.

    An art journal page in an Exacompta journal embellished with spool stamps in fluid acrylic paint.

    Collect a bunch of different round things from around the house and use them to STAMP circles {or any shape you wish} on an index card, envelope, cardstock, art journal background, to-do list, anything! 

    Things you could stamp: spools, thimbles, medicine cups, lids, pen caps, washers, bolts, corks, bottle tops, egg shells, cookie cutters, rubber stamps. Lots of fun ideas at Hardware Stamps. Dip the stamps in anything that makes a mark. Coffee, tea, smashed berries, white or black gesso, heavy body acrylic paint, fluid acrylic paint, craft acrylics, watercolors.
