Inspire Me Thursday: INSPIRED BY DESIGN

This week's challenge at Inspire Me Thursday was to create a piece inspired by design...flip through a magazine, browse a catalog, looking for advertisements or layouts that you are drawn to. Choose one to be your inspiration… the task is not to duplicate it or to use the actual page within your art, but to be inspired by certain elements within the design, perhaps the color palette, the composition or a pattern used in the inspiration piece.

Inspired by a feature on one of my Martha Stewart Living magazines from august 2005 on rubber stamp designs.

Martha Stewart Living magazine (august 2005).

Seeing all those fabulous stamps in Martha Stewart's mag would sure get me inspired, too! Love your handcarved stamps! I have only carved two so far, seeing this now makes me want to make some more!

Thanks for participating at Inspire Me Thursday!

I always thought Martha cornered the market on a well-designed magazine. I haven't looked at it in years, but it's good to see she's still hiring amazing art directors. These stamps are so cool...I've never tried it either. Very neat idea and I love your colors. I like how you're always trying new things. :-)
