My Cup of Tea – Foiling techniques with PaperArtsy

My Cup of Tea - Foiling techniques with PaperArtsy

What an exciting technique for the PaperArtsy blog – foiling. I have followed this trend for a while now, always thinking about how I could use this as part of my art journals or mixed media projects. I enjoy the look of a foiled background or when the foil is rubbed onto nearly dry alcohol ink. For this post, I wanted to use something that I haven’t used in a while though – foil flakes. That’s the good thing about renovating your house. You find items that you haven’t used in a while. I knew immediately, that I wanted to …

Working with tissue paper on an art journal page with PaperArtsy

The theme over on the PaperArtsy blog is tissue paper and different ways on how to use it in your mixed media projects. I was in a nautical mood, so I decided to use Scrapcosy’s stamps and create an art journal page.

I hope you enjoyed the quick video. Do you use tissue paper in your art? If yes, how? Supplies Used Some of my links are …

Hi everyone, and welcome to a new post for PaperArtsy. This time it is all about stamp platforms, so I wanted to show you how you can create a spooktastic Halloween card with the help of the MISTI – or any other theme for a card using stamps and paints. I’m a huge fan of Halloween and love all the spooky decorations and costumes. For these cards I decided to use some non-traditional colors though.

PaperArtsy Baked Texture

Hi an welcome to a new post for the PaperArtsy blog. The topic is “Baked Texture” and instead of using Seth’s Baked Texture embossing powder for it, I created my own (texture, not embossing powders πŸ˜‰ ). I combined the Baked Texture with new Seth Apter stamps that have been released by PaperArtsy just recently. I rarely create bigger 3D items, but I was kind of on the role with this project and I added quite a bit dimension. My quick video will show you all the details. Have you used Resin before? I thought that it is a lot …

Let's decorate a little box with Paper Artsy.

Hi everyone and welcome to a new project from me using PaperArtsy stamps and paints. This theme was called “Enshrined” and I decided to decorate a little box for this 3D printed octopus. I also had a little wooden box laying around for a while, so I decided to create a lair for him. I used a variety of blue shaded fresco Finish paints to create an ocean scene and added a bunch of texture using Seth Apter’s stamps ESA07 and ESA08. Then I added a few fish that I cut out from a napkin, added his treasures to the …

Vintage ATCs - a guest post for PaperArtsy

Hi everyone and welcome to a very exciting post – I’m guest designing for PaperArtsy. Woohoo πŸ™‚ The theme is vintage and I decided to create three vintage ATCs using the latest Seth Apter stamps and paints. As you know, I love PaperArtsy paints.

You’ll find more close up pictures and the written tutorial over there. You can also follow me along while watching my …
