How to create a disappearing Cheshire Cat with Visible Image

How to create a disapearing Cheshire Cat with Visible Image

Hello and welcome to a new blog post for Visible Image. This time I’m excited to share the new Alice in Wonderland sets with you, especially the Cheshire Cat. I LOVE Alice in Wonderland! It’s one of my all time favorite stories. When I saw the cat stamp I knew that I wanted to create the disappearing Cheshire Cat and just had to come up with a plan on how to do that. In my video I’m sharing my plan and the slightly wonky execution. At least at first, it got better later on 😉 What do you think? Did …

Take me by the hand art journal page with Visible Image

I’m back with a new art journal page using stamps and stencils from Visible Image. You know what I like about them? All of these sets can be used interchangeably – you can combine them in so many ways. Talk about versatility! For today’s page I’m using a mix of old and new stencils and one of my favorite sentiment stamps. It all started with the background. Sometimes I have difficulties starting with a page. What colors to choose, what technique to use, how to apply the paint? For those moments, I have the perfect way of overcoming the “fear …

We always think we’ll have time with Visible Image

we always think we'll have time with visible image

Yay, I’m back with a new project for Visible Image. I’m super excited to be finally working with some of the new stencils and the somewhere in time stamp. Unfortunately my camera didn’t record, so there won’t be a video for this art journal page. I’m sorry 🙁 I started by spreading just a little bit of Dylusions paint onto my art journal page. I just wanted to cover the middle of the page a little. Then I added the same shades first through the “Collision” stencil and then through the “Count me in” stencil. I liked the background stamp …

Visible Image and Misti Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to the incredible Visible Image and Misti blog hop! We prepared some amazing projects to show you how you can use the Misti to create truly amazing pieces of art.

Leave your fear behind with Visible Image

Leave your fear behind with Visible Image

I’m up on the Visible Image Stamps blog again with this little gesso board. I really enjoy working with smaller surfaces and combine different textures with amazing stamp designs. The Leave your fear behind stamp set is one of my newer stamp sets from Visible Image and I’m in love with it! I combined a few “earthy” colors from the Dina Wakley paint set for the background and then just played around with the stamps and stencils. You can watch my process here: Do you like to experiment with your art or do you have a few go to techniques …

Hi everyone and welcome to a new blog post for Visible Image. This time I’m sharing a bright and grungy little canvas with you.

It’s definitely a lot of fun to create those smaller canvases and they are perfect for a little decoration, for example in your bookshelf. Thanks for stopping by! …

She wears her smile as a disguise – art journal page with Visible Image

She wears her smile as a disguise art journal page

Woohoo, I received a new package from Visible Image and just had to play with some of the new to me stamps. One of them was the she wears her smile as a disguise sentiment that just resonated with me. Those types of sayings allow me to get my creative thoughts flowing in a totally different way and usually I’m really surprised with the end result. Same here. That art journal page turned out very differently than I originally thought and I think it fits to that sentiment very well. First off, I created the background. This is actually a …

Creating bright ATCs with Distress Oxides and Visible Image

Creating bright ATCs with Distress Oxides and Visible Image

Hello and welcome to a new post for Visible Image. I was in the mood for something bright, something very bright 😉 Because I haven’t used my Distress Oxide in a while, I decided to create a few bright ATCs using them. I started with a 3 1/2 x 9 inch piece of water color paper and smeared the Oxides directly onto the paper. Then I spritzed water on top, let the inks move and mix and heat set it. Next up, I used the smooshing technique where I put the ink directly onto my craft mat, spritzed some water …

Never stop being curious – An art journal page using Visible Image

Never stop being curious

Welcome back! You know me, I love trying new things and am usually rather relaxed about the outcome. This art journal page definitely went through a try and error process before it ended up looking better. In today’s video I’m sharing my journey with this page. The title actually fits really well, because if you never stop being curious, you will create amazing art. This journal page is using some of the new Visible Image stamps. One of them is the “Create your own Calm” sea horse, which needed to be a focal point. I combined it with the Fibres …
