Art For Today: Cherry Blossom Stamp Art + Some Interesting Facts

Art For Today : Cherry Blossoms Out The Window

I sighed. I was itching to find a stamping card idea, and execute it in my art. (I was seeing idea’s on Pinterest) but I couldn’t. I don’t know why.

“Ugh.” I scrolled, and scrolled, then suddenly a image popped up.  What? I clicked on the picture and… drum roll! After tons of huffing and puffing, I’d finally found something that I liked…

Art For Today : Cherry Blossoms Out The Window

Ta da! Here’s what was on Pinterest. The art, window style, everything was mine except for that idea. I’d actually gotten that kind of idea ages ago, but I thought it would be really tough. Sometimes you don’t  know how it will be unless you try it, isn’t it?

Wow, I mean, I’m loving this art(not bragging.)! I’ve always wanted to make this type of art, but I thought it will be difficult. And yes, the cherry blossoms and the ‘memories’ is stamped – didn’t I tell you in my earlier post I got new stamps(6), new inks(7), new acrylic block(1). Goodness me, I can’t wait to use more of it–it gives wonderful results!

I guess I’m liking this way of blogging. Well, sometimes, I think you shouldn’t go on thinking about a 500 words post or even more – write 200-100 words, add a picture of your art, and you’re done. It’s better if you do this a few times when you post a art.

I love cherry blossoms. I have unfortunately not experienced them yet(we do have them in India – have written where it grows in India at the end of the post)But I’d love to do that once. The beautiful and divine pink, those soft petals dropping on your head, ooh, I can imagine me standing in front of a huge cherry blossom tree!

Did you know that cherry blossoms grow mostly, and a lot in Japan? I love sharing these little tid bits about things—-I like doing research. Lets get on to some super interesting facts!

“Most Japanese schools and public buildings have cherry blossom trees outside of them. Since the fiscal and school year both begin in April, in many parts of Honshū, the first day of work or school coincides with the cherry blossom season.”

– Wikipedia on ‘Cherry Blossoms’. To read more about cherry blossoms, click here. Also, this website shows where cherry blossom trees grow in Japan, as well as forecast.

So.. that’s it! You know what, I make art almost everyday, and so I can share almost every one of them, why don’t I do this kind of post? It’s a quick-read, quick-write, fun write, lots of pictures–sounds good, eh? What do you think? Do comment below!

P.S : This was in my wild discovery week, so it’s almost like a ‘wild art’ for me :). Haven’t read my wild discoveries posts? Check them out here.
