Mark Making

In yesterday's post I mentioned that I was routing around in the recycling etc to find somethings I could make marks with that would be similar to the parts of the Well Rounded stencil from The Crafter's Workshop.

So what did I find? Some plastic pots for making circles, and some drinking straws for little circles. I've bunched some straws together, that I cut in half first, with an elastic band to make multiple circles at once. Of course, lets not forget the bubble wrap. I've got a lot of that, but finding some that the children hadn't popped already was the tricky part. The bottom right image makes me think of corrugated card-board. I'll have to keep my eyes open for when some of that becomes available.

So out with some paint to test it out.

Not bad, I think I'll have some fun playing with those.

What do you lying around that you can use for mark making in your journals, craft projects and scrapbooking pages?

I have collected so many things over the years that I though would make great stamps - trick now is to collect them all while I am inspired by your creativity!
