Creating my own Baked Texture with new Seth Apter stamps from PaperArtsy

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 …

The Stencilfied Journal Prompt 8 – Stencil with Glue

The Stencilfied Journal Prompt 8 - Stencil with Glue

I’m back with one more page for the collaboration between Tina Walker and StencilGirl: The Stencilfied Journal Prompt 8 (which was last week’s prompt) is “stencil with glue” and I took that prompt rather loosely. I ended up embossing my page, so the glue is the embossing dabber πŸ˜‰ This page went from treasure hunt to Halloween page rather quickly. I definitely wanted to use the Scribble X stencil but the original idea was a treasure map. After my embossing powder started flowing, it felt more like something is taking over, literally. So I looked at my Halloween ephemera and …

The Stencilfied Journal Prompt 7 – Rip up a Page

Stencilfied Journal Prompt 7

Hi everyone, welcome to prompt number 7 of The Stencilfied Journal πŸ™‚ I know, I’m a little late with this one, but we are renovating our house and that kept me quite busy. To show you how sorry I am, I thought I make it a video this time. Is that okay? πŸ˜‰ This weeks prompt was to rip up a page and glue it back into the art journal. When I first read it I was shocked. How could I rip up a page that I just decorated? But after a while I calmed down. Isn’t that exactly what …

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!

Take me by the hand art journal page with Visible Image

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 …
