3 ideas on what to do with your mono prints with ArtFoamies

Hi, it’s Josefine. I was in the mood for playing with my Gel Press and create some mono prints. While I was getting ready for it, I wondered what I should do with those prints. I bet, I’m not the only asking herself that question – what to do with all those prints? That’s why I thought I could share some ideas with you. First, here is the video that shows you how I created all those prints and then what I did with them. First up, I created bookmarks. These are great as presents or just a little extra …

How to use ArtFoamies for stamping on fabric

Stamping on Fabric with ArtFoamies

Hi, it’s Josefine. Welcome to a new video tutorial for ArtFoamies. It’s close to Christmas and I was thinking about quick and easy gift ideas with an awesome effect. So, I decided to decorate a blank tote bag using Nathalie Kalbach’s Geometric Small foam stamps as well as Cat Kerr’s Balance. ArtFoamies are great for stamping on fabric. They are squishy, which makes them perfect for stamping on uneven surfaces, like all the folding lines on my bag. Check out my video to see how easy it is: Because I still had paint in my StampBuddy, I decided to create …

The beauty of nature with ArtFoamies

The beauty of nature with ArtFoamies

Hi everyone, Josefine here and I wanted to share the next page in my mini art journal with you. If you haven’t seen the first two tutorials yet, you can find the first one, where I created the mini journal, here; and the first page here. I started with adding a little bit more interest to the background using the Tri & Try Again foam stamp from Balzer Designs. The colors I used were rather translucent, so the shapes would blend into the existing background. This page already had a circle shape on the right side. I wanted to enhance …

Lost and Found art journal with ArtFoamies

Hi everyone. I’m super excited to share this art journal page with you. I used the journal that I made for my first ArtFoamies tutorial (you can find it here) and I thought it would be fun to share with you how I decorated all the pages, starting with this one. Here is what the page looked like before I started. First, it needed more layers. So, I grabbed one of the n*studio Geometric Small foam stamps and stamped that pattern all over the background. I used similar colors than the ones I used for the original background and mixed …

Grungy balance on a wood canvas – a project for ArtFoamies

Grungy Balance ArtFoamies Tutorial

Hi and welcome to a new tutorial for ArtFoamies. Today I’d like to share with you a “balanced” wood canvas. I prefer wood canvases over canvas fabric as it is sturdier and gives your projects a unique look. I started by applying the first layer of paint. A very easy technique, especially if you sometimes have difficulties with getting started, is to use a brayer. I applied a few drops of paint directly to the canvas and then just brayered all over it. For this project, I did that in two steps: first blue shades for the sky, then green …

ArtFoamies Mini Art Journal

Hi, and welcome to my first video tutorial for ArtFoamies. I really enjoy working with a Gel Press to create mono prints and thought that this would be the perfect technique to share with you for my first video as part of the design team.

How did you like this folding technique? I found the idea for it on Pinterest and was so …
