Making a Piece of Art from Many Carved Stamps

Students designed stamps that could work together- either as repeating designs, or as a thematic picture. I have lots of soft rubber stamp material left over from projects- either scraps or "lino-cuts" that students did not want to take home with them (we used the backs).  This is the first year that we have done this.  The students really loved carving multiple stamps.  The printing was a little more difficult.  Eighth graders have a hard time with the idea of needing to start over if something becomes messy (or messed up)!
