Full of Words....

Sometimes you're so full of words, they just spill out onto anything and everything. I had words spill out onto these washers the other day....

...if you've got too much to think about, words will fall out of your head and onto your worktable!

Ok ok, so the words didn't *really* fall out of my head and onto my worktable but it was a cute story don't you think?

Not only do I use my stamps for personalizing my shipping envelopes, I also use them to personalize my beads and findings.

I've used a permanent ink in a rich brown. I line up the washers in rows and stamp the words across several washers. Each washer has a partial word - put a few together to find out what word is stamped on them.

Try making your own or you can pick up a few from my store.

Have you been full of words lately?

That's so cool, Cindy! Smart, too. I tried using the other kind of stamp (hammer it in to make indention) on a washer for the base of a sculpture and couldn't get it to show up good enough to really read.

I am so full of words! I love that they are spilling out onto your worktable, Cindy...they fall out all over the place on mine. Words, phrases, poetry, definitions, lyrics, mantras, prayers.....all words are sacred to me and I love to incorporate them into my art. Thanks for sharing your inspiration today. I love it!
Enjoy the day!
