Sketchbook pages

These are stamps which really are not sketches, but I did have to sketch the images before i could turn them into stamps so they are sort of sketches too.
Some of the ones on the right are a wooden Indian block but it doesnt print very well, so I decided to make it bigger and and the other is a kokopelli stamp which I made from sticky backed fun foam and put on a block. I wanted to do some of my own stamps as I am doing some fragments and frescoes for my Playways Module 5 stuff and this seemed a good way of getting them.
So out with the sketchbook and then after cutting and organising, here are my stamps. I didnt actually cut the hand stamp, that was cut from a cutter.
Very cold today, no big walk although twice I went around the mares and foals, the newest foal has a growth on his neck so will have to see a vet next week. We actually got a couple of mm of rain as well that we really were not expecting.
New young broad beans from the garden for dinner tonight with potatoes and atlantic salmon done in a parcel (foil) with olive oil, dill, lemon juice, soy sauce, salt and pepper and a bit of fresh coriander. Into the oven for 15 minutes. Yum.
