 FLOWERS - BLUMEN

I tried to combine with our current theme - The Sea - over at AJJ
Ich versuchte mit dem "Meeres" Thema bei AJJ zu kombinieren

 And I experimented  with a styrofoam stamp I had made out of an old package of veggies. I scratched a tulip in the foam and printed often with it onto my papers and as I  used black gesso on it to print, I saw that the stamp has  turned  into a lovely MOO sized piece without further ado. So I just glued a little word on it and here it is - my lucky coincidence Moo.


Und ich hab ein experimentelles MOO zum Zeigen  - eigentlich war das ein Do it yourself Stempelchen aus einem Stückchen  Styroporgemüseverpackung, in die ich ein Tulpe geritzt hatte um damit zu drucken. Nach mehreren verschiedenen farbigen Drucken hab ich  mal schwarzes Gesso zum Drucken verwendet und bemerkt wie toll dieses Moo - formatige Teilchen dann aussah ohne weiteres zutun. Nur noch ein Wort draufgeklebt und fertig war das "GLÜCKLICHER ZUFALL MOO".
