New Stamps

From geology to the present day
I spent a few happy days before Christmas making stamps for Shrewsbury Museum. It's such fun to make physical objects from scratch. My good friend Jean of Crafty Individuals kindly made the rubber sheets for us and we encountered a steep learning curve actually making them up, never having done this before! The designs are taken from my illustrations for the new Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery at present being constructed in the old Music Hall.  The new Museum is so exciting, incorporating as it does, so many ancient, beautiful and intriguing buildings. My illustrations represent the collections, also endlessly fascinating. They are designed to be used as icons on products, doors and banners. Here is one of the first, and tiniest, uses!
