Then the fun begins (actually the fun begins when you start collecting the stuff to put on them.)You need a list from the person, of family and friends names and interests. Then you create a store or company for that person. For dimension and texture I use smaller boards for buildings and in the picture below you can see I used a ruler for a building. For a really cool texture I like to get the textured paint chips from the store and run it thru the sticker maker. Then I use whatever! The flag waving below is an old 4 cent stamp. Another stamp is used for an Organ Donation billboard.
I use old tickets, metal pieces, postage stamps, ect. Once you get started your mind just takes over. I even have a mini work of art (on my shop) by Tascha, a wonderful, new favorite artist of mine. Thanks Tascha!
A new technique I used this time was to put clear embossing powder on for windows. I used an eraser in a square shape as my stamp. Back in the 70's, I had to search magazines to find names and such, but today you can just create them with the computer.
