Did you know that you can buy the Grid Paper that you will see on your place each time you come along to class? They are not only great for helping to protect your work surface but also a fabulous place to jot down your wish list and clean off your blender pens as you work. They’re also helpful for techniques such as “stamping off” where you need some paper to stamp before actually stamping on your paper. They also have a ruler so you can double check your measurements as you work.
I found mine to be helpful to line up my photopolymer stamps as I put them on my block. If you place your stamps as you want them to be on the grid paper you can then position the block above them and you’re all set for perfect stamping.
I wanted my numbers to go over the top of my sentiment, I stamped the sentiment first so that it would be easier to then stamp the numbers over the top.
Have you got any more examples of how you use your grid paper? While we are talking about clear blocks – did you know we have a cleaning cloth for your clear blocks?
