Fred Mullett Play Day





Susan and I had a Fred Mullett (brand name of stamp line) Day today. Susan had taken a workshop from him and she showed me how to do a couple of his techniques. (The butterfly tag is NOT a FM stamp). We struggled a bit with the bleaching, because my bleach was a gel bleach, and it must have been several years old and had lost some of its oomph! I had better luck with the watercolor and over-stamping technique, but, I still need to practice and practice! Susan made some beautiful pieces. She has a really cool shrimp stamp of Fred's and her page of shrimp turned out wonderfully! Susan and I always have fun together, yet, she is getting to be an expensive friend! :) She told me that Fred was having a blow-out sale on his unmounted stamps, and to go to his site right away and order before they all sold out! (http://www.fredmullett.com/). I ended up ordering all of the sets he had left (won't say how many!) His stamps are based on his own nature prints, mostly plants and fish.
Thanks, Susan, for a fun, albeit expensive day!!
