I've been making book stamps for years, but my books remained unmarked. No longer!

Class Projects: Pulp Painting

This week my Papermaking class at KCAI experimented with pulp paintings. Pulp painting is using paper and pulp to create artistic compositions. We used a combination of layering sheets, applying pulp with squirt bottles, and embossing with objects.

Animal Stamps

I was asked to create some stamps for Kids Jazoo, a benefit for the Kansas City Zoo. These will be used as passport stamps, as kids move from one activity to the next. They are all between 1 and 2 inches.
