I have a fun project to share today! I wrote an article about it in the Winter 2014 Issue of Altered Arts Magazine.
All you need is a nice thick paper, like watercolor paper, A stalk of celery and some inks. Cut a straight cut across the bottom of the celery, about 2 inches from the bottom.
I used acrylic paint and inks to make some backgrounds. Then, I applied ink to the celery and stamped!
How awesome is that? They look like roses!
Just use a baby wipe to take the ink off of your celery (or cut a little bit off to get fresh celery again) and you are ready to stamp again.
All different colors of "roses" for beautiful backgrounds. Or, stamp them as a focal point on a card, fabric or anything. That's the fun of art!
Who ever said you can't play with your food?
*No celery were wasted during the making of these backgrounds. I put cream cheese and olives on the stalks and we enjoyed them very much.*
