Stamping Around on the Town
- a piece of flat, flexible styrofoam
- a bit of screening
- a cucumber
- a strip of bumpy foam
- one square rubber stamp with a design on it
- a piece of string
We used Jacquard fabric paints.
When looking at the photo, we focused on the rectangular shapes and the windy cobblestone lane. The buildings are just rectangles.
Use a fabric glue stick to make the foam sticky
Add cucumber snippets and lightly press them down as best as possible, to try to make them stick.
Add black and white paint to create cobblestones.
Next, use a small square stamp for windows. Stamp with black paint. Allow to dry.
And, just for fun, my dog on that same cobblestone road. (unfortunately they decided to tear up the road and redo it- make it more “modern.” Can you recognize the same buildings? The new construction has been going on for over a year. I like the old better!
