2017 Topic #3: Paints with Infusions {Challenge}

 2017 Topic 3: Paint with Infusions


Well hello everyone, Darcy here with a new topic, this one leads on from one of our new releases, speaking of which, did you see all the wonderful new products that we showcased last week? if not pop back and see all the new yummy goodies. 

Our latest topic is Infusions, and we have 12 brand new colours available now from your favourite PaperArtsy stockists. As the first 12 colours have been out for a while now you have all been having fun, experimenting with them. We would love to see what else you can come up with, and our guests over the next 2 weeks have lots of ideas to inspire you. 

We would especially like you to combine using Infusions with PaperArtsy Fresco Chalk acrylics, glazes and grunge paste they make great companions on projects, and we are excited to see how you can work with them together. This can be anything from using the paints as a base with Infusions on top to creating mottled backgrounds with Infusions and using paints for your accents or embellishments. 

Kay Carley
Before we start, let's see who won the Topic 2: Masks Challenge. Because of launch week, you had extra time for this challenge and wow did you put that time to good use. I have been checking them out, so much creativity on cards, tags, journal pages. It is exciting to see just how many different techniques were used. 

The winner of Masks  is: Asia from Lemon Creation

Email Darcy to claim your prize. Darcydotneedles@gmail.com

PaperArtsy Infusions are a water-reactive powder with 2 ingredients; colour dye and walnut dye. The 2 particles dissolve at different rates allowing you to increase or decrease the vintage vibe depending on how much water you add, and when you dry the results. Increase permanence by adding gum arabic, glazes, mediums and pastes.

Rusty Car
So as we know, working direct onto most paper and card can result in your paint or ink being sucked into the substrate, what can reduce this firstly is using good quality, smooth card. I haven't found anything as good as PaperArtsy smoothy card. This is a great base layer, but to make it even less 'sucky' you can use a 'sealing' layer. 

PaperArtsy Fresco Chalk acrylics glide onto the card and blend beautifully. Even though they contain chalk which means they dry really quickly they still give you plenty of time to move them around. We have other 'sealants' such as Matte glaze, Satin Glaze, Gloss glaze, Pearl glaze and Metallic glaze, all of these once dried will prevent the subsequent layer from getting sucked into the card. 

So why not start with a paint layer before adding your Infusions, they will react slightly differently than if they were added direct to the card. They won't get sucked in when you add water, they will puddle more and drying times will be slower, this raises lots more possibilities and these are all things you can experiment with. 

Try them out over our newest paint colours from the Seth Apter Collection. 



You can also get your 'mixology' hat on and play around with mixing Infusions with paint, tint some snowflake to create your own colours, or tint one of the other lighter colours.. how exciting to come up with brand new colours! This technique has the added advantage of sealing in your infusions and making them permanent. 

Ellie Knol made these gorgeous cards by combining paint and Infusions on her gelli plate. 



You can also do this with the grunge paste, here Leandra is tinting grunge paste with Infusions. 

Another great combination here from Wanda, here she has cleverly used her Infusions with fabric, but also added in paint and embossing powder.  


Another great fabric project comes from Helen Chilton, she loves t experiment and on this piece she not only dyed the fabric using Infusions but also stamped the images with Infusions. 



Two stunning pieces next from Lin Brown, the first uses a glaze to hold the Infusions in place so that subsequent layers can be added. This technique creates a really muted, blended background, ideal for creating depth. 



This next piece also from Lin uses a combination of Infusions and Crayola slick Stix.  A little experimentation with different mediums can often yield some fun results. 



Another video for you now showing how Shari Carroll uses a glazing medium with her Infusions. 


Infusions can be sprinkled really effectively through stencils, though you do get a watery spreading effect, for a tighter version try adding using a texture paste or heavy gel through the stencil and then add the Infusions like in this gorgeous card. 


Nikki Acton
This next card shows one of the most simple combinations, just Infusions and a die cut. I think you will agree the black silhouette looks stunning, and really pops over the Infusions. As for the technique, this is a 'mop up' from leftover infusions on a stencil, nothing wasted here!


Clare Mesenger

Please don't shoot me, I know it is early.. or is that too late.. for Christmas, but I simply could not resist showing you these cards.

How about these colourful strips of Infusion magic, don't they look like strips of fabric?

Keren Baker
These cards combines several very cool techniques, starting with an infusion masterboard, then clear embossing and finally blacking out the background. Click through to see how Emma Godfrey created these.  



A final video today from Kim Dellow, here she talks you through how she using her Infusions with embossing ink, it's a magical technique. 



Here is a recap of our Infusions:
  • 24 Water soluble, non permanent dye stains mixed with walnut crystals.
  • Easy to apply from the bottle.
  • The colour dye and the walnut dissolve at different speeds. That opens all kinds of doors for FUN!
  • Permanent when spritzed with gum arabic dissolved in water or when applied with a glaze (matte, satin, gloss).
  • Use lots or a little of the powder for totally different effects.
  • Use lots or a little water for totally different effects.
  • Differing results on both sealed or sucky surfaces (smoothy/ gesso/ fresco/ watercolour paper, Yupo, Grunge paste).
  • Amazing on/ into textured surfaces or on/ into gels and mediums.
  • Superb on fabric.
  • Fabulous with stencils, applied direct or sprinkled into mediums/ textures.
This final card shows a great contrast between the paler background and the bolder flowers, both done with Infusions. You can achieve so many different looks by just playing and varying the amount of powder, amount of water and the drying time. 

Mandys Card
Summary.... So what will you experiment with? Infusions and paint or glazes, or tinting grunge paste? Watch out for some truly fabulous inspiration over the next 2 weeks, have a go at the techniques that our guests share or try out something new! However you play with your Infusions, we want to see! 

Don't forget to follow Darcy and Leandra's Pinterest boards if this topic pushes your buttons, you will see plenty more examples to whet your appetite there! I am really looking forward to seeing what you create over the next 2 weeks!

NEW from PaperArtsy {Zinski Art Part 2} February 2017

Zinski Art Collection {Part 2}


We have come full circle in just 2 short months...from Elena...to Elena. We started with our first Zinski Art release In January at the USA Creativation tradeshow in Phoenix, and now we finish with another release from Elena coinciding with our UK tradeshow, Stitches. 

Elena has an adorable style, and one thing in particular that has grabbed me with this release is the way she and her very capable assistant sample-makers have turned these quirky flowers into flower-people so easily. Maybe Elena planned it that way, but whatever she does, it always makes me smile. I love that about her designs. We have more new quotes that you will find just a little bit different, and perfectly suited to her stamps too!

Let's take a look!

Here's a video with plenty of inspiration and explanation!
~ Leandra


Hi everyone, Elena here to show you my newest stamps designed for PaperArtsy.

As you can see, I've continued the flower theme and added some fun sentiments I think will work really well with my character stamps from my first stamp release of ZinskiArt monsters. 

Once again, I invited Wendy Mallas and Lauren Hatwell to help make samples with these new products. Please go and check out their blogs where you will find more detailed information about these stunning samples and the techniques they used to create them. Well worth a visit!

Let's start with Wendy Mallas.  
Wendy is about fun and humour, which shines through in her quirky samples. She's made some really cheeky little characters out of some of the flowers, showing how versatile these stamps are and how easily you can make them your very own.  I'll pass you over to Wendy now, to tell you more about her cheerful creations.

Have Fun! using ZA09, ZA12 (and Zini's 01, 06 and 07) by Wendy Mallas

No automatic alt text available.

This sentiment screams "PARTY!" to me. Those monsters will appear everywhere. Elena's beautiful flowers made up an enchanting garden.

Sorry... using ZA10 by Wendy Mallas

No automatic alt text available.

Look at those little faces. The one with the striped hat made me think of the Cat in the Hat which then generated all the faces in my mind. 
.

Jazz Hands... using ZA10 by Wendy Mallas

No automatic alt text available.

This sassy little flower has a song to sing. Elena puts so much movement into her designs; they almost come to the life on the paper!

We All Scream for Ice Cream using ZA10 and ZN03 by Wendy Mallas


The 'flower boy's' hat reminded me of an ice cream cone. All it needed was a happy little monster who loves ice cream, and who doesn't?


Next up we have Lauren Hatwell.  
Lauren never ceases to amaze me with her incredible skills and attention to detail.  I just love how she's able to take things to another level and she has really made my characters come to life.  Her imagination and ideas are so inspiring.

I Would Grow Extra Arms using ZA10 and ZA12 by Lauren Hatwell

I love the way all the stamps work so beautifully together. The sentiments are perfect for some really great cards and journal pages. Elena really has thought of everything and her sense of fun shines through the entire range.


Naughty but Nice using ZA10 and ZA12 by Lauren Hatwell

No automatic alt text available.

Elena's amazing designs really do transport you to another world; a world where anything is possible.  I don't know about you, but I would LOVE to have a garden filled with cake flowers...slurp!  It's clear somebody else is thinking the very same thing...

No automatic alt text available.

I really wanted all those fabulous characters to look like they are popping off the page, so I've used lots of paper puffing and grunge paste to help bring everything to life.

Fussy Cutting Fiesta using ZA11 by Lauren Hatwell

No automatic alt text available.

I do love a bit of fiddly fussy cutting and I do LOVE a bit of repeat stamping. This gorgeous flower is such a good strong design that it stands up beautifully to the bold repeat stamped background using a sentiment from the January release (ZA08). Added to that, there is a wealth of opportunity for layering it up to add dimension.  I love it!

Bright and Beautiful using ZA09 by Lauren Hatwell

No automatic alt text available.

I know you shouldn't have favourites, but if I had to pick one from my samples, it just might be this. Elena's gorgeous GORGEOUS flowers are such a joy to play with whether you want them to be beautiful, quirky, or something else entirely.


No automatic alt text available.

I've puffed out the flowers and added a layer of PaperArtsy Gloss Glaze to really make the colours pop. It's my new favourite technique. I wonder if you can buy Gloss Glaze by the gallon!?

So now it's time to show you what I've made with these new stamps. It's nice to be able to be free and loose when creating.  My first thoughts with these stamps was, they're flowers, but they're not real, so I can do whatever I want with them....right?  I don't have to worry about "whoops! I've cut a petal off" and I don't even have to use them as flowers if I don't want to. They can be background blobadoodles (now if that's not a real word, it jolly well should be!), animals, birds, or anything else you want them to be. 

Now to share a few of my own ideas for ways to use my brand new stamps. I hope you'll enjoy them....

Project One
Monsters Go Wild in Swirly Land using stamp sets ZA09, ZA10, ZA11 and ZA12 by Elena Guzinska (ElenaZinskiArt)


First I've made a journal page layout

Step OneFirst I stamped out the flowers from sets ZA09 and ZA11, together with the monsters from ZA01. I coloured everything in and stamped a quote from ZA12 


Step Two: Next, I cut everything out before setting aside while I prepared the background.



Step Three: Using Fresco Finish Chalk Paints I swirled some circles within circles with a brush and let it dry.



Step Four: Then, with the Chalk coloured Fresco Paint watered down, I made a wash to push everything back, before pasting all the cut out pieces using an under and over decoupage technique and some gloss glaze.


Step Five: Squeamish people look away now... I'm afraid I cut one of the monsters in half so I could elongate him to allow him to hold his sign.  Then I doodled some scribbly hands on each side of the sign and added some zig zag stitch style doodles on the edges of the page.





 Now my monsters are having fun amongst the flower buds in swirly land.


Project Two
 Crazy Canvas Panels using ZA02, ZA09, ZA10 and ZA12 by Elena Guzinska (ElenaZinskiArt)

I've also made two 7"x5" canvas panels.


Step One: First I painted the panels with Fresco Finish Chalk Paint and made marks while it was still wet with a wooden skewer. I then dabbed with kitchen towel and, once dry, I watered down some paint and made random splashes on the canvas.  


Step Two: Now you stamp the images onto each board. I used the half moon from ZA02 as leaves before adding a variety of stamps from ZA09, ZA10 and ZA12 to complete each scene.

Step Three: Now to colour in the images...


Step Four: Last but not least I added a border to each canvas. The scalloped border on the yellow canvas was created by simply loading the brush with Chalk coloured Fresco Paint and dabbing along the edges of the board. When the paint was dry I drew in the scallops with a black pen.


For the blue board I just scribbled a rough border around the edges of the board with a black pen. I like the imperfect look, so not a ruler in sight!



Thank you all so much for popping along here this evening. I hope you've had as much fun as we've all had. I've really enjoyed seeing the projects some of you have been making with my stamps up to now. They were all designed with happy in mind, and to make people smile so it has been fantastic to see your gorgeous imaginative creations which have really brought a smile to MY face and I can't wait to see more. Thank you all big giant lots :o)

I really do hope to see you on my facebook page. Links are below. See you all soon. 

Elena
Facebook: Elena Guzinska

I really am super excited to see what you all create with these stamps, we have a wonderful array from Elena to choose from now, so that should keep you content for some time as we see out the last of the winter months!

All tonight's wing-men have detailed step out's explaining how they made their samples on their own blogs tonight, so do drop by and take a look by following the links: Wendy, Lauren, Elena.

Thanks to all for another wonderful post full of super ideas!
Congratulations Elena!
