Dip the potato in paint and stamp away

1. Spread the paint evenly on a palette or plate and dip the carved face of the potato in the paint.

2. Then, using the potato as a stamp, transfer the shape to the sheet of brown paper. You may want to scatter this shape over the paper and then create a second or third potato stamp with varying shapes to intersperse with the first.
