I love surprises, especially fun surprises. My friend, Jan, must have taken to heart my description at the top of my blog, where I say I collect giant things for my giant coffee cup. She surprised me when she sent me a giant ballpoint pen. And it works. And it writes very nicely too! Coincidentally, I recently bought a giant pencil at the dollar store. It has a chalk point, and the packaging says the eraser works on the chalk. So I have two new things to go along with the giant wooden scissors, the giant plastic nib/container, and the giant brush. My cup runneth over!
What I'll bet Jan didn't count on was that I would take some of the rubbery shelf liner stuff she rolled the pen in before she mailed it. I wondered if it would stick to an acrylic block. I cut it in pieces and tried it out. It didn't really stick like I expected, but it stayed long enough for me to stamp with it.
I also painted it with acrylic paint and stamped. Great for borders on a journal page!
Another thing I've played with this week is stamping with a piece of embossed wallpaper (anaglypta).
And that's why they call me "she who is easily amused"....
