Mr. Smarty layout by Leanne Allinson
I wanted to create a layout about my son's success at school and I knew that the Jillibean Soup | Irish Farm House full alphabet set, would make a great background. However, I didn't want to use the clear alphabet stamp letters individually, but rather the entire sheet as a whole stamp. To achieve this I simply kept the individual letters on the clear packaging backing sheet and mounted it onto a wet acrylic block. The water, applied with a small, round paint brush on the acrylic block, was sufficient to keep the stamp image in place while I created my layout background.
