Project re-style 2: stamps (part 2)

My new morning project (read here): rejects from a stamp collection and frames from a charity shop.  The framing proved MUCH more difficult than I thought, so I cheated and split the project into 2 phases.

I blew up (photocopied, people, photocopied) my collection of edible and poisionous mushroom stamps from the DDR (1980 - aren't they cool???), and made an amateur attempt at paper cutting them out:

That act was inspired by this book.  Phenomenal. Have a look at Hino Aoyama or Peter Callesen, and watch my attempts melt into insignificance :-)

  1. It's soooo lovely! If only I had the patience to do a project like this. Although I think I may have to get the book! Wishing you a wonderful summer weekend!
