making your own stamps with paper

One of the tasks for my current Mission over at the 30 Day Craft Cleanse was to cut-out and make my own mask for spray paints.  I saw a pretty picture of an eagle, so I took my time and cut it out of the magazine. 

I tried using my eagle as a mask, but it didn’t work well.  So I decided to make it into a stamp instead.  Using two different colored stamp pads helps to bring color onto the page.  Of course, I wrote about my experience - I like to do this so I won’t forget, and for anyone else who happens upon my art journal.  Remember:  keep your cut-outs for a later date!  I put mine into an envelope and taped it into my journal.

That really turned out great as a stamp! Never would have thought about that!

That is neat. I never would have guessed it could be a stamp!

That's a clever use for that eagle!
