Hello. Welcome to the first post of Whatsername & Thingummybob!
Meg, miserable with a cold, stayed home again today for the fourth or fifth time in the last three weeks. Everyone seems to have this virus – first you have it for a week, then you start to feel better and crow at the improvement, only to be struck down even more violently two or three days later. It was rotten for her, so to cheer her up, she and I spent the morning making stamps from plastic erasers.
I did a few on my own, but then Meg designed a couple of characters for them, which I then cut out.
Our plan is to print some cotton yardage with these little animals, so I’m off to the art supply store tomorrow to buy some fabric medium to use with our acrylic paints.
Before I do, I’m going to use contact cement to glue them to little blocks of wood so that they are more durable. Will post some pictures of the finished result when they’re done!
