Tuesday Tips and Techniques: Stamp Your Foot!

That's right - add some acrylic paint and stamp your foot (or feet) into your journal!  It's summer, and a perfect time for playful journaling and childlike fun.

Today's technique was inspired by a comment that Michele Mary of Movin' Muses, left on my blog post, "Give Yourself a Hand".  Never once did it cross my mind to use my feet, but Michele Mary's comment, "What a great idea to use your hand as a self portrait. We could use our feet, too!", sparked this fun page.

I used artist craft acrylic to paint the bottom of my foot, and that act in and of itself, was freeing and just downright FUN!  A little soap and water clean up, and my foot was good as new.  A few wavy lines to add some colored pencil text, and voila!  It's one of the most joyful, playful things I've done in a while, and I highly recommend this activity.  Why let the kids have all the fun as you "Celebrate, LOVE, and Create!"


My first cherry tomatoes ready to pick - YAY!


  1. Your paint looks so awesome. Love that.

  2. A beautiful, Summer-Free page! Looks like a vine ripe tomato tastes. Love it! ♥

  3. LOVE IT Angelia! You are so playful sometimes, such an inspiration to me. I really like the words in different colors in the background too! Thanks for sharing this and making me smile today. Hope you are well.
    Hugs and many blessings

  4. This is a great page, love the colours. I keep wanting to do this with my puppy's paw so I have a printed log but so worried of the mess if he shot off before I managed to clean it - I guess a human counterpart is a safer bet lol much love jenny :)

  5. Angela--you are BRILLIANT from head to toe, GF! Can't wait until class tomorrow!!!!! Hugszzzzz Kath
