Some of your borders stamps would translate beautifully into electronic clip art. In fact. you might consider being clear that your work is copyrighted and YOURS. A little thing, perhaps, but it's lovely work, these stamps you are creating.

Marylinn Kelly said...

Jeanette - Thank you...of course I had thought of that, then promptly forgot. I don't have the capability to do a watermark but can add the copyright protection. Glad you mentioned it. xo

Penelope said...

Like! The colours, the feel . .

Claire Beynon said...

These carry the notes of optimism and openness, Marylinn - lovely ; ) xo

Marylinn Kelly said...

Penelope - Thank you...have you done any carving? Don't have a stamp you want? Carve it...stamp it before bedtime...much fun. xo

Marylinn Kelly said...

Claire - Thank you. Brand new Kaleidacolor rainbow pads...makes everything look bright and fresh. xo

These are fantastic! You should make a whole line of paper products...cards, wrapping paper, journal covers, framed prints...the list could go on...

actually,there are online places that will make watermark - you dont need photoshop.

Fast stone does one for free.

Marylinn Kelly said...

Kerry - As the saying goes, from your lips to God's ear...I take your encouragement to heart and have begun the day, the week, happily with some new dreams, thank you. xo

Marylinn Kelly said...

Denise - Thank you so much for the information. I've done a first look at FastStone...trust I can follow their tutorials and learn how to do this. Old dogs, new tricks, etc. xo

Marylinn Kelly said...

Thank you, Readers, for so much encouragement, support and useful advice. I feel newly-invigorated, freshly focused. xoxo

Barbara said...

Oh, these are beautiful. Not only in design, but those colors. Brings back memories of a new or freshly inked Kaleidacolor...and the joy and wonder that can bring. Thanks for that spart! I haven't had time to stop by since "swooning" over Raglan Road. I can see your blog is going to be a must read daily event. You word everything so perfectly.

Barbara said...

OOPs! I meant SPARK not spart. So much for proof-reading. tee hee

and pastel-hues of phlox.

:)

Marylinn Kelly said...

Barbara - Thank you. ON RAGLAN ROAD is still murmuring in my head. These are brand new Kaleidacolors, acquired in exchange for stamp store promotional writing. I didn't know if they still made them. No other rainbow pads can compare. xo

Marylinn Kelly said...

Susan - Just meet me anywhere. They are packed and ready to play. Ah, that's the pad I need, the pastel phlox. We can carve some new designs while we're about it. xo :D

Love these! The pencils are my favorites:) First visit to your blog -- and I LOVE it! Joan (Stamp Your Heart Out) sent me and I am glad she did. Thank you! back to reading the older posts I missed....:) :)

While reading the comments, I completely lost track of the conversation.

Phlox pads and rainbow stamps, sounds like I need new art materials.

These are bright and cheerful.

Marylinn Kelly said...

Anne - Welcome and thank you so much. I remember well your wonderful mail art shows, always inspiring me to try something new. So nice to hear from you. xo

Marylinn Kelly said...

Antares - Thank you and of course we always need new art materials...the phlox is a bit of an exaggeration, but I believe there is a pastel Kaleidacolor pad which would be very, very close to phlox or petunias or snapdragons or... Color makes me happy. xo

Yvette said...

Love, love, love these Marylinn. Especially the pencils, the phones and well, in truth, all of 'em. :)

So cheerful too in these rainbow colors.

I LOVE the pencils!
Stamps could make the world a happier place if we all had them.

Marylinn Kelly said...

Yvette - Thank you. A fresh Kaleidacolor pad is always bright and cheerful...adds life and dimension to whatever one stamps. xo

Marylinn Kelly said...

Rachel - Thank you and you are so right, they DO make the world a happier place. They definitely make snail mail a happier thing. xo
