Mixed Media Art Questions for Milliande


I saw your videos how to make your own stamps. It really inspired me. So bought the tools and i started with it. I made something with circles. It was fun to do and it was nice to use it in a art journal.
But now i am wondering if there is something i could use for ideas.
Example i saw your making a swirl. Where did you get the picture from?

Sorry for my English, i come from Holland

I really want to thank you for all the inspiration.



Greetings Sandra

Ideas for making my own stamps can come from many sources, often I draw a circle or a spiral to fit the size I am after, If I like a particular image then I might try an image search on google ..or take a peek at some of the printables on http://www.milliande-printables.com to see whether an image might be suitable for what I am after

The trick with image searches is to be precise in what you are looking for ans rather than using an ordianry search on google do an image search -- there is a little button under the advanced tab that lets one specify the exact search term which helps narrowing the search results down ..

If the images are for non-profit personal use then any images found in a magazine, in a library picture collection can be traced ... childrens books often have fun and simple images that lend themselves well to be made into stamps

Dover has an extensive clipart collection .. which offer copyright free images that can easily be adapted for making stamps ... often the outline os silhouttes for stencil designs are easy enough to carve too


hope this helps
