Circles or trash

There are many items you can use to stamp circles with, think toilet paper rolls, lids of milk bottles, interesting bottoms of plastic bottles, cans, swimming pool noodles or insulation tubes. Shopping might take more time than it used to take :-). And cleaning your kitchen will result in a bag of goodies for your studio and a (small) bag of real trash.

Collect a number of different sized ones.Place your fabric on the printing board. Put some paint on a plate and apply the paint with a brayer, foam roller or foam brush to your stamping object. When you use a brush, make certain that you do not apply too much paint. You can use a single object for the whole piece of fabric, or combine them.
For this sample I used different yoghurt cups, swimming pool noodles, glas jar, lipgloss stick and washers.


  1. Whew! I thought you were thinking the fabric might be trash! LOL
