Collecting Colors

When in doubt, play. A certain teal fabric had been sitting on my table for months. I had attemped to use it in a commission, but it had been eliminated. I think its time has come. But perhaps after a little alteration.

One of the fabrics I had been playing with had somewhat of a seaweed print. I traced the print, altered it considerably, and carved a stamp. Then I carved a smaller, less complex stamp, then I carved an even smaller, much less complex stamp. Then I stamped.

What will come of any of this? Right now it is a mere collection. Possibly not a lively enough collection. But I do like the subdued colors for a change. I feel a sea theme coming on.
