Guest Designer at PaperArtsy

Tell Me Why Girls Talk

I love the chorus in Girls Talk by Elvis Costello. When looking at these beautiful face stamps, that song came to mind.

Art Journal - Tell Me Why Girls Talk - Marjie Kemper guest at Paper ArtsyIt’s my pleasure to return to PaperArtsy today with this art journal spread featuring four sets of their stamps. Lynne Perrella and my friend Ellen Vargo designed these stamps. All the details and lots of step-out photos are over at PaperArtsy.
