Chicago Stamping Retreat

It is always fun and exciting to be able to get together with a group of stampers, especially when one of them is the ower, creator, designer and artist of Stampscapes Rubber Stamps. Kevin Nakagawa joined us for 3 days of the ultimate stampers experience. While I did not join them for the full 3 days, I did spend several hours there on Friday. Ken Pesho also joined us again this year and he is also very talented and a wonderful artist. Here are some of the people and art from the weekend.

I didn't get anything done worth posting this time as my head and heart were in California with Scott and the accident he just had but if you don't understand scenic art, each item is an individual stamp.
Several are choosen to create a scene and stamped onto the artists choice of paper. Then they are colored in with either inks, Copic markers, pencils, watercolor or chalks. The results are amazing

We had such a great time. I'm so glad you at least joined in for a few hours. You were missed.
