I’m visiting Japan next month and I made a list of what I want to do in Japan, what I want to eat in Japan, who I want to see in Japan…etc…etc. I haven’t been back in Japan for nearly 2 and a half years, so it’s really exciting!
By the way, I’ve put up a photo of my stamps in my last post, and now I’ve started making my own “keshigomu hanko” (eraser stamps). Making my own stamps seemed really exciting, and the materials are cheap so I thought “Why not give it a try?”
If you are not so familiar with the eraser stamps you can copy & paste
in Google Image and you can see all kinds of stamps!
These are what I use:
1) Draw whatever you like on a piece of paper (keep it simple at the beginning!)
2) Trace it
I thought it would be quite easy, and I was so ecxited thinking what kind of stamps I want to make for my Filofax.
It was actually sooooo difficult!!! How can other people make such tiny & detailed stamps!?
It looks so easy in the videos, you know!
It’s obvious that I need A LOT of practice, so I decided to go for some very simple designs first like a strawberry and a cherry 🙂
I really hope I can show you something a lot better than this soon..!
