Waaaaay back in early October, Gina sent me an "add & pass" postcard.
It is part of the Friends & Faux Filatelic Bureau's postcard project, in which each person who receives it adds their own ArtiStamp and then sends it out to someone else. Eventually all cards should return back to F&F.
It took me almost two months to finally sit down and create my own series of stamps, and once I finally did, I couldn't decide who to pass it to, so there it sat, for two more months.
It's truly embarrassing.
But here it is:
It's a great project, and I'm grateful to Gina (who makes amazing inspiring stamps and shares them generously) for giving me the kick I needed to make my own. It really wasn't that hard. I don't have photoshop or other fancy photo-editing software - I just imported images of my art into a word document and used the "text box" feature to add the postage amounts and other words. I then shrunk the whole picture to a suitable size, and copied and pasted it a whole bunch of times to make a full sheet.
Here are some of the others I've made so far.
These all started as small collages I made for the index-card-a-day challenge last summer. I just imported the scanned images into Word.
I'm excited to learn more about ArtiStamp making at Ex Postal Facto (which starts two weeks from today!!!!!)
I'm sure I will come home fired up to make more.
For now, this Friends and Faux postcard needs its next stamp.
Anybody want to play along? First person to comment with a "Yes" will be the next in line.
