Continued the accordion fold book inspired by my trip to sunny California.

Added a row of houses on 1st collage page, houses around the green belt on the 2nd, and a rubber stamped bike coming down the hill to a house on the 3rd.

How to rubber stamp:

I use black Fabric Screen Printing Ink by Speedball. With plastic spoon, spread a dab of ink into a 'pad' made with 2 pieces of white felt. Work ink into the pad.

Press stamp into inked pad. Stamp on scrap paper for practice and then on painted paper. When image is dry, heat set according to product instructions.


  1. Thank you for teaching us your new technique!

  2. Anh-You are welcome. I love using rubber stamps! Maybe we will do this together some special place across the seas!

  3. Gee, I didn't realize rubber stamping was so complicated! I'll have to try that too! Thanks for the technique!

  4. Perhaps this coming winter...ala stamps and glue sticks to the land of Job. Don't know about the public displays but sure look forward to the threads of conversation during...

  5. Exciting possibilities my friend :-)
