This site is a personal project to share designs with those who might appreciate and use them. It’s a creative outlet and a little gift to the world. If you are interested in usage of the images or why I’m giving they away, please see the uncopyright page.
The designs shared here will initially be prints from hand carved stamps, some photography, and a few other ideas. You can use these for pretty much anything. Some ideas are patterns for making stamps, Photoshop brushes, art journals, scrapbooking, craft projects, blogs, prints, t-shirts, or stickers.
So who is Open Space? I have a career in engineering with a bit of graphic design experience on the side. I have a passion for sharing creative designs and beauty with others. I also love nature, wildlife, and spending time outdoors. I live in Texas, south of the Houston area, and less than an hour from the coast. The name Open Space comes from one of my hobbies – letterboxing – where everyone goes by trail names and we often don’t know some of our friend’s real names! This hobby also started my interest in hand caved stamps.
Thank you for visiting.
