From last week, my print cards are available at the art store – Endeavours at downtown Fredericton! (412 Queen Street) $3.99+tax Each.
Also you can find my stall at the Boyce Farmers Market every Saturday morning as always. The market time is 6am-1pm. See you there!
This is something I had been planning for a long time. This is something more than 5 people have suggested me to make. The Chinese 12 animals! As always, they are stamps carved from my original illustrations. Available at my stall in Boyce Farmers’ Market from this Saturday. I also made a chronology table so that you can find which animal you are soon.
Another thing coming up is my coupon. It offers you a 15% discount in one year. For the customers buy more the $50 at my stall. As you can see, the coupon itself has been print from a stamp as well.
This week I made 12 new Hanzi- Chinese character stamps.
Each one comes with a card with the pronunciation and the meaning .
Hopefully they will go well at the Farmers’ market this Saturday, July 18.
Do you know each pencil is with a tiny rubber-stamp?
Buy a rainbow ink pad and play with your child.
This is the second time I’ve offered speedy-cut (speed ball) from America. It is my favorite rubber block. Really as smooth as a butter. The only thing is it is too soft to carve details such as letters. So for most of the order-made stamp cases I will use another rubber-SEED made by Japan.
This speedy-cut is 6 3/4 x 11, the biggest one. I think this time I will try to carve some plate in a post card size, not only for small stamps. The weather is just beautiful, I have to do more sketch in my city.
A part of my new works this week. Small stamps mounted by wood blocks. ( 2.5cm x 2.5cm) Some are based on the Japanese traditional family crests-Kamon.
I also have some new stamps like butter fly and the animals’ silhouettes .
See you at the Market!
There is a Chinese saying: you can’t have a fish and a bear in the same time. Pretty much like : you can’t have a cake and eat it too. But this is an opposite satuation : you CAN have a fish and a bear in the same time! Well, to the bear’s point of view, you can have a fish and a girl at the same time!
I’ve just bought a sewing machine and I am glad to find the connection between fabric and stamps. These coasters are printed by my stamps, using Tsukineko ink pad (versacraft) for fabric. They are washable.
I ordered some paper fans from Japan and stamped on them. They are different from each other. So far I’ve never seen anyone here using a paper fan in summer, but it works!
