New Techniques Challenge on Just for Fun

Well this got me thinking for sure. I am always saying I will try stuff and never get around to it so now is the time to have a go! Just for fun has motivated me yet again!

Ages ago I got a book from the library about stamping ideas and at the time I wasn't even any good at stamping on paper let alone trying any of the things in the book. One thing stuck in my mind and that was stamping on dough. The mix was 4 parts flours and one part salt and just make a pastry dough using water then stamp on it. You can make a hole by using a straw when the dough is still wet. Cut out shapes and leave them to dry and use as you wish after that.

Here are some I have made though I have loads more from 100grms of flour and 25 grms of salt. I painted these ones then used Promarkers to pick out some of  shapes


  1. How lovely Chrissie :) we used to that at play school, completely went out of my head so thanks for the reminder and comeing up with some fab charms :)
