X is for Xylography
the art of engraving on wood, or of printing from such engravings.
It began with a Christmas gift. My son saw some interesting stamp sets as he was shopping. He knows of my love for card making, which often involves stamping. He also knows of my love for mountains, forests, and farms.
The stamps traveled with us.
Along with paper and ink pads.
The stamps were taken out....
of the motorhome when we arrived home. They had not been used. Time to get busy! I knew what I wanted to do, I just needed to do it. So, I brought out my beginner's kit for making my own stamps and made a crude stamp of our motorhome. OK, so it isn't xylography in its truest sense... but it comes close!
Now, I can put myself in all of those pictures of the mountains, and forests and farms! I want to make some cards representing our travels that I can send to friends, especially those we saw along the way.
Maybe now that I am getting near the end of the A to Z challenge
I'll find more time for this project.
Wanna take bets on that?!!
