Stamping on Handmade Paper - Maidenhair Fern Journal

FullSizeRender.jpg

Here's my current "every day" journal where I keep track of projects that are simmering away, ideas with maybe a sketch or two, or notes jotted down from podcasts.

This journal features one of my favorite projects - stamping on handmade paper.  I hand-carved this maidenhair on a Soft-Kut printing block stamp, and used pigmented ink to stamp it onto a piece of 3x4" handmade green tea paper.  Last year I published the recipe for Green Tea Handmade Paper in honor of Earth Day. 

Happy Creating!
