I don’t always know why I make things and why I get obsessed/sidetracked by any particular thing.
I found these cool rubber stamps on Etsy (really for stamping clay) and made 24 fish for the three-year-old class to go with a game they play.
Then I decided to make some more to leave as abandoned art - they can be bookmarks or just positive ephemera. I decided to add fortunes from fortune cookies (I have a jar full).
Then Etsy informed me that the seller had a second set of stamps so I have 4 more designs. I’m mounting the fish on card stock and covering the backs with book text and newspaper. And laminating them because why not?
I think I’ve made 100 so far and since I have a stack of painted papers, I’m sure I’ll make 100 more.
Why, oh why do I do what I do?
Stamping more fish.
I use a brayer and a cosmetic sponge.
And laminating at work - shhhhhhh, don’t tell.
