Thanks everyone for your nice comments! Smiley

Tools wise, I use a 30 degree Olfa craft knife (these have a more pointy tip than normal 45 degree ones, so they can make finer and neater details) for all my rubber stamps. Plus a U-gouge to remove the inner portions, if necessary. That's it! Smiley

It's quite easily actually! Instead of driving yourself insane by writing from right to left on the stamp itself, you can draw out your design in the right way, left to write, using pencil on tracing paper (or any other translucent paper), then flip the paper around and burnish the graphite onto the eraser. The imprint will be laterally inverted, so after you carve it out, the stamped image will be right way up again! Hope this makes sense :p

5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Sketches from Japan (img heavy!) on: December 28, 2012 10:11:23 PM
Hello fellow crafters!

I returned from a holiday to Japan recently and here are some sketches from the trip. It's the first time I did anything like this and love it as it's so convenient and inexpensive. My sketches aren't the best but sketching created a stronger impression and fonder memories of my travels, like how my bf sat beside me on the sidewalk in the cold when sketching the Tokyo Tower  Smiley

My tools are a SGD$2.90 (USD$2) A5 size sketchbook from Muji, and a bunch of markers which were so easy to bring around.

More sketches on my blog at thecraftyloufoo.blogspot.com. Would appreciate any comments. Thanks for looking!

Hi fellow crafters, here's my latest set of hand-carved rubber stamps! I've always loved the grace, poise and strength of ballerinas Smiley



Any comments would be greatly appreciated!

Very sweet! I like that it has a folk art feel to it. I'm sorry you don't get to experience autumn, but eternal summer sounds very nice too  Smiley I'm gearing up for autumn in my part of the world, and yes, it is ablaze with reds, oranges, purples and yellows- I think autumn is the prettiest on a rainy or over cast day when there is such a vivid contrast between the trees and a grey sky  Smiley

Thanks for posting!

Thanks for your nice comments! That sounds soooo pretty and the weather must be lovely too Smiley Gonna visit Japan during autumn this year and I can't wait to pack my sketchbook and color pencils  Cheesy
