Stamp Show Recovery

Well, Puyallup was a blast! We had tons of people at our booth all day Saturday and I taught my first class at a stamp show! I decided to teach an introduction to Fatbooks and had 9 ladies show up. The class was an hour long and we had a great time!
Since the show I've been catching up on orders and adding new stamp designs to our web page. The picture is one of the new designs that I used in another swap I am involved with. I stamped our new "Paisley - Four Flowers" design with Tangerine VersaCraft ink onto cotton fabric, then painted part of the design in with turquoise and fuschia fabric paint. To give you an idea of size, this little rectangle is the size of a business card - approx. 2" x 3". After painting, I sewed some beads on, then sewed a piece of coordinating fabric onto the back of this piece (this sample is not finished yet). Very fun! I'm excited about all of the art-making possibilities with my new line of paisley stamps. I'll post more samples as I complete them.
OK, I'm back to work catching up on my web and show orders!
Thanks for stopping by.
Artfully yours,
