Beautiful Botanical Stamps

Being a nature lover, I enjoy creating altered art using images inspired by the great outdoors.  For the two projects shown below I used clear stamps designed by Rachel Emilie Jackson.

The branch for the birdie is from this set of stamps.

It doesn’t take much to make a Peat pot pretty.

You can find the detailed instructions for creating the project shown above here

Shown below is an altered glass jar that I created using this set of stamps, also by Rachel.

The detailed instructions for creating this altered jar are also available at the Crescendoh Gallery.  BTW, did you know that the Crescendoh Gallery shares a new project every Friday?

I’m happy to report that the weather in my neck of the woods has been unseasonably warm.  For instance, yesterday we had weather in the 60’s and it’s predicted that this trend will likely continue for the next few days…I couldn’t be more excited!  This means that I’ll be able to get outside more to explore nature and the remainders of Fall.  There are still golden, rust-colored leaves on the branches to admire and savor before the stripping winds of Winter come whirling through.  So, time to rush off to enjoy it all…hope you’re all soaking in some sweet sunshine also!

  4. Rachel is one of my favourite artists, adore her style.
    Both of your projects are full of rustic charm. I love that your work always exudes a sense of the gentle.
    P.S. Today has been the best day this week in my part of the world (which is Scotland) a little touch of sunshine but a definite nip is in the air!
