This is an archived posting from my previous website “Chips Antidotal Wanderings” – a personal blog about family, creative moments, and pain management activities in my life. That blog was active from 2004-2011.

My May Artistamp ATCs got lost in the mail and still haven’t shown up at the swap hostesses house. Boy do I hate when that happens! So I had to create a couple new sets real quick and send off to her so she could close out her swap. Since I didn’t have time to really design something fresh, I decided to use an art poster that I have in my home for the main theme. I used a quick and easy creative process to come up with this design.

Artistamp Creation Process

First I took a picture of the art poster and then cropped it down to just the owls eyes. Then I placed it in a basic stamp pattern I keep stored on in my graphics file. After making a few font changes I was finished with the new stamp. Although I love the browns and earthy tones in this design I decided for the ATC I would alter it a bit further and go with an unusual color for this theme. At least then it would have some artistic flair to it, that’s actually Paint Chip inspired.
