One color per card using Nuvo from Tonic Studio

Tonic Studion Nuvo one color per card

Hi everyone, I had a fun idea for a project and thought I’d share this with you 😉 When I was sorting through my Nuvo mediums, I realized that all of the products match nicely when used in the same color palette (what a revelation, I know 😉 ), so I wondered how cards made with Nuvo products in only one color would look like. Trying not to spoil anything, but it was a lot of fun 😉 Have you ever tried making something in only one color? Maybe now is the right time to do it (again) 😉 Supplies…

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.

Mono printing with Nuvo Aqua Flow pens

Mono printing with Nuvo Aqua Flow pens

Hi everyone and Happy New Year! Let’s start it with some fun and that includes mono printing for me. I was curious about the Nuvo Aqua Flow pens and if you could do more with them, besides coloring images. So I grabbed my petite Gel Press and started coloring that. Here is a quick video showing all the details. What do you think? So many options and it’s so easy. That technique is also great for creating a bunch of blank cards and then add a sentiment later on, once you need a card. Supplies Used Some of my links…

Doing my Thing - Ink Smooshed Thank You Cards with n*studio

Aren’t we all good in “doin’ our thing”? Perfect theme, if you ask me. The problem was that I couldn’t decide which of my favorite techniques to show you… mono printing, layering, something snarky…? So many options. At the end, I decided to go with a variety of techniques using watercolor inks (Distress Inks, etc). I created a few “Thank You” cards as I needed them anyway 😉 In addition, I love to create videos, so here is my “doin’ my thing” video for the thank you cards that I made. Nathalie’s foam and rubber stamps were perfect to add…

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…
