Beautiful and Practical - A Terrific Book You'll Love,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Making an Impression: Designing & Creating Artful Stamps (Paperback)
Making an Impression is a beautiful book and is totally useful as well. The photos are amazing, giving you a glimpse into Geninne's gorgeous home and studio. The text is very easy to read, not overly technical, but still highly detailed. The book opens flat due to the binding which makes it easier to put on your worktable while you are carving. After a techniques section there are lots of projects showing you ways to use the stamps you carve. The back of the book has templates to trace if you'd like to carve stamps using Geninne's motifs, or you can carve stamps of your own design.
I carved my first stamp last night, using the instructions in this book, and now I'm totally addicted. This is a new craft for me and I'm in love thanks to Geninne's beautiful book!
