New Vintage Storybook Tiles on Their Way

I’ve had a busy weekend making eggs and nests and a new range of Vintage Storybook Tiles. I’ve been madly painting and sanding my the timber pieces for the tiles and Gocco printing my newly created stamp on the back of them. I’m now using thicker timber pieces with a predrilled hanging device, and there’ll be three sizes of tiles to choose from.

I’ve still got a lot of work to do before they are complete, but I thought I’d show you the stamp I made and the colours I’ve been working with. I’m hoping to have them completed in the next week or two…. wishful thinking perhaps?!

    Looking beautiful Lisa, love the stamp on the back!

    Oh aren’t goccos the best for that? It’s what I use mine for too.

    The only thing though: If you only want to stamp a couple of things (or like me, when I finish an artwork and I might need to stamp it only ONCE) – the clean up is such a PAIN!!!

    Hope you’re still having fun with it though :) Don’t you just love the detail you can get with those little screens?

    Can you stop being so clever please? The rest of us mere mortals are feeling inferior!

    Love the stamp Lee, and the colors of the tiles.

    Thanks Kim. I love my Gocco!

    Hi Alex – I wouldn’t enjoy doing one at a time either. I agree, I hate the clean up. Can you stamp a whole heap of them prior to creating your art?
    I love, love, love my Gocco!

    Thanks Shaun!
