Diagonal Images by Judy Jackson

Last weekend was the Heirloom Stamp show in Allentown, PA.  I helped our fearless leader, Pat Huntoon, in her booth for the Technique Junkie newsletter and stamps.  Doing this is a lot of fun!  I am always amazed at how many folks have never heard of the Technique Junkie newsletter.  Afterward, of course I had to have some new stamps!   Pat encouraged me to try to use this stamp set of Funky Kitties.  It was not a problem as my daughter loves cats. She has four of them!   I also got this frame stamp.  I created a mask so that my kitties would stamp inside the frame.  Every frame has a different arrangement of kitties. All of the stamp used are from Technique Junkie Stamps. http://www.stampcamp.com/  Check them out.  Lots of wonderful images here.

Most of us tend to stamp our stamps in the same orientation all the time.  It is good for us and good or our brain to use our tools in different ways -- helps to keep our brains working you know!  I enjoy this technique (from the current newsletter) for that very reason -- it forces me to look at my stamps in ways I haven't thought of before. 

What stamps you have that you could make work in this orientation -- diagonally -- that you never thought of before?

Happy stamping today!
