Stamp Hearts


My Dad had several books of stamps from when he was a kid. I checked with a REAL stamp collector and found they weren't worth anything. HURRAY FOR ME!

I made hearts on handmade paper I made from scratch in college. It's the perfect background for the colors. There's still something missing from the hearts but I haven't figured it out yet.

And speaking of unfinished works, I piled together all of my watercolors-in-progress:


The thing with my watercolors is that they require so many layers which need to dry between applications. And they pile up because I forget about them (and don't keep them all in the same place!). I cleaned up my art room so everything has a place for now. Can't wait to see what happens with the hearts and watercolors!
