E is for Emboss
I was going to blog about Emotional Colour tonight, but my brain is fried, so I was reduced to skimming through the dictionary looking for inspiration.
I found it 😀
I saw the word ’emboss’ and thought, hey, I bought some embossing tools awhile back. I think I’ll have a play.
And I did.
There was no rhyme or reason for this piece. I figured I would just experiment with the tools, having never embossed before in my life, and see what I can do. I embossed a few shapes off some texture boards I had bought, then dragged out some plastic stencils and played with those. What better word to emboss than ’emboss’?
I’ve been reading a new book that came into the library about doodling by Stephanie Corfee so I decided to randomly doodle with no design in mind at all (for me not something I usually do). So I now have this random embossed doodle I can stick into my art journal…hmm, a new reason to have an art journal, somewhere to put the idle experiments and scribbles 😀
So I have a short entry tonight for E. E is for Emboss and Easy.
Thanks to all the lovely people who have dropped by over the last few days. I’m really enjoying this challenge. here’s hoping I can keep up the steam. It is good for me and my blog.
Nice to see you’re still with us. Have you tried the other sort of embossing? (With powders and a heat gun) Great fun watching as the powder melts. The little pleasures in life…

No, this is the only embossing I have ever done 😀 It is fun and I’m sure I will play with it some more at some point.
I’ve been reading all your A to Z challenge posts (I have subscribed to your blog by email). Apologies for not commenting. I’m finding it rather challenging to get a post up everyday. There have been a few late nights here this week.
And yes, F is for Friday!
Hope you have a wonderful Easter.
