I just got back from a trip to Maine oh how I LOVE the beach. Yes it was cold and we even got some snow, but it was just lovely to walk along the ocean and breathe in that salty air. It soothed my soul :)
Anyway I took my journal with me and some of my stamps as I had planned on doing some art journaling. As you can see that did not happen. I walked along the beach I thought that it would be fun to stamp on beach stones.
So I took a few stones back to the hotel and stamped away. I only had my Memento ink with me and some Copics. It would have been better to use a different ink as the Memento got sucked right into the porous stone and what should have been a jet black colour was now a dark gray. I used the Wishing You Joy stamp from Unity. The trick to stamping on stones is to NOT use an acrylic block, you need the movement of the stamp as the stones are not completely flat. So I just held the edges of the stamp and just wrapped the stamp around the stone. Once the ink was dry I coloured them.
I made 5 all in different colours but the red was the most striking. I returned them to the beach the next day and left them all in a little row to be washed up by the waves :)
I got up early to see the sunrise it was just lovely I could have stayed there forever :)
Tomorrow I am picking the winner for the grab bag of Unity Stamps. You still have time to if you want to enter go Here :)
