To be honest, the whole reason I designed the “you’re getting sleepy” stamp was because I wanted to stamp it all over my new sketchbook cover. I got a white ink pad, tested the stamp on the back cover of my old sketchbook, and grabbed my can of spray shellac to seal the ink and keep it from smearing. I thought of everything. Everything except the fact that my new sketchbook cover has a faux leather texture all over it. The bumpy texture made it impossible to stamp a clean impression, so instead of concentric squares of solid lines I ended up with dashed lines. It kinda wrecks the hypnotic effect I was going for, but I think it still looks moderately cool. I’ll have to hurry and fill this sketchbook so I can get a new smooth-covered one and try again!
I decorated my last sketchbook cover with washi tape. See?
