Stamping Light and Shadow with Jessica Swift, Lifebook 2015
Carving stamps is one of my favourite things to do. Making stamps of any kind is a blast and you know what you get is what you are looking for because you made it that way. The play of light and dark blues is a perfect setting for these carved stamps. Once one stamp was carved I turned it over and created another on the back. Not as detailed and deep as the original but fun just the same. Value is the word I picked for Life Book this year … to remind me to value myself as much as I value everybody else. That’s not selfish, but self preservation so I can serve those around me and keep on doing it.
