Fun in the Sun / Welcome Home!

    NASA estimates Earth has almost 372,000 miles of coastline, and about a third of all people live within sixty miles of an ocean. That’s a lot of beach! We visit eleven beaches lovingly captured in time by stampers.

    Welcome Home! - Laura Verderame

    The story imagined by Laura Verderame for her Welcome Home! stamp art involves a woman waiting on shore for her husband to return from a long fishing trip. That’s his boat—about to bring in the catch. Laura colored the sky with die inks and blending brushes. The sun was made with a circle punched from Masking Magic Sheets. “I put the mask down and started coloring the sky, took it off and brushed on the yellow ink, then finished the sky, blending it all,” she explained.
