    Hardware Stamps (Part 1)

    “Book collecting is an obsession, an occupation, a disease, an addiction, a fascination, an absurdity, a fate. It is not a hobby. Those who do it must do it. Those who do not do it, think of it as a cousin of stamp collecting, a sister of the trophy cabinet, bastard of a sound bank account and a weak mind.”
    Jeanette Winterson

    cheap finds from the hardware store, odd blocks of wood my husband had in the garage

    washers and lock washers

    huge washers

    washers and lock washers, wedged to dry upright

    tee nuts on a triangular piece of wood

    Bought everything for this project a WHILE ago, finally getting to experiment making stamps with metallic hardware. The concepts here were 100% inspired by the book Print & Stamp Lab by Traci Bunkers. The ideas in the book have swirled in my mind since reading it a few months ago.

    So for today's Nanojoumo journal work, I created stamps to use on my journal pages this week! Art journaling is about everything it takes to get something on the page - from creating or collecting ephemera, to painting, to doodling, to making stamps, to gessoing pages, to making backgrounds, to writing thoughts or lists on your pages. It's all that! Find out more in the Step by Step Art Journaling series.

    More ideas + photos in Part 2 and Part 3.

    I like making my own stamps but I've never tried with metallic hardware.....ooh I wonder what I can steal from my husband's toolbox without him realising. I'll let you know should I create anything. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Oh yes, I love this idea. Especially since I work with encaustics and these metal parts would survive the heat. I need to be baking a couple pies right now, but I fear I'm gonna have to run into the studio, lol.

    oh what a great ideal, I am totally going to steal that idea. I hope the turkey is tasty and you have a fun thanksgiving.
