The free lesson for January on my website is "How To Carve Your Own Rubber Stamps". After reading a thread on etsy asking for help on this, I decided to create a whole lesson. You can go to my website http://www.donnaldasmolensfineart.4t.com and click on the lesson page. You can print the picture for your own files. I love carving rubber stamps from erasers that I get at the dollar store. I use them to decorate tags, make borders on my handmade book pages, and in my collages.
It is very easy to do and it is fun to use them together to make rich borders or all over designs for backgrounds.
I have also posted some of the things I do with my stamps on Flickr.com.
