Default Attended the Texas Art and Stamp Festival

Me and a few of my art-ya-ya sisters attended the Texas Art and Stamp Festival in Grapevine over the weekend.

We were slightly disappointed that it was more of a vendor sales booth kind of thing instead of hands-on type classes. I do shop/window shop at quite a few different vendors that were represented and was very pleased to see the products in person.

Now ... let me get to my main topic ... the BJ's Art and Stamp booth was doing a lot of western type stuff ... square piece of card stock, embossed all over with copper and then before it completely cooled smeared brown liquid appliqe all over it and then heated again. It looked like suede or leather. I really liked the effect. You could stamp onto or stamp while it was still warm and just see the stamped image without ink.

They also had a large horse stamp - great stamp ... a lot of detail in the horse, but 99% of the horse's body was blank. They created a mask around the outside of the horse ... and then used this to stamp an image onto the horse ... a pueblo type scene. I don't know if I am describing it that well .. but I really liked the idea. I'm not much into western style cards and such .. but I thought the idea might work for other images. However, as I scanned the entire catalog ... I really do not see images that would be good for this technique. I do have a fruit set from a few years ago ... that has a nice pear and orange image that might work well. Then stamp like a bowl of fruit inside the fruit.

Have you guys ever seen this technique before? I thought it might even work with a large Christmas tree with a grove of trees inside the tree ... I guess I need to play around with something and then post it.

It is just one of the ideas that keeps popping into my head.
