Fred B. Mullett

Welcome to my blog...Oldie But Goodie bloghoppers!  Have you ever purchased a stamp because you absolutely love it...love it so much that it is put aside and never gets inked? Well that is the thought behind the OBG bloghop.....and I dug out a oldie/goodie for the occasion.
Let me introduce you to Fred B. Mullett (yes that is his real name and a real person).  I first became aware of this artist in 2001 when attending a convention called The Creative Palette in St.Mary's, Ga. Mr. Mullett started stamping by taking actual natural items found on walks and around the yard, inking them up and stamping an image.  I must explain that Mr.Mullett does not refer to this art as rubber stamping, but I quote from his website,  " tactilely interactive vulcanized tools for the replication of graphic imagery".  I loved these stamps the first time I saw them but have only managed to collect two of them, both of which I use here...two fish.

  2. Hi Mary! wow...it's so neat to learn about other artists and their creations. This is a beautiful creation! I love the fish. I think they look gorgeous. I love the subtle changes in color and how they blend so beautifully together. Thank you for sharing them with us today. :)
