I love the look of hand printed textiles! I recently shared how I make my own adhesive stencils. Stamping is another fun way to create your own print. In this post I'll share how to make a basic shape stamp and use to to create a pretty pattern. I stamped this fabric covered journal! Enjoy…

To make your stamp you'll need… craft foam, wood blocks, a permenant marker and wood glue.

Here's how to make your stamp… 1. Draw a simple shape on craft foam. Remember that the image will print reversed, so if you are making a letter it needs to be flipped! 2. Cut out your shape and adhere it to a wood block with wood glue. Allow it to dry completely. 3. Now you have a brand new stamp! You can use this with ink or paint. Be sure to clean it after each use. Here's how to use your new stamp… 4. You'll need paint, a paint brush and a paintable surface like fabric, wood or paper. 5. Brush paint onto stamp before each application. You can also use a roller if you prefer. 6. Now you have an adorable hand printed piece! This is so fun and addictive. Imagine all the creative possibilities…
