Hi Everyone, Leandra here with some amazing new stamps from a brand new designer who we are thrilled to welcome to the PA family.....it's Tracy Scott...
Tracy is amazing with paints and creates such bright and cheerful canvases, journal pages and doodled stuff. These stamps are typical of her fun style, and will be useful for many broader crafting activities too!
So lets take a closer look at the actual stamps...
I'll hand over now to Tracy who will introduce her new products, and share with you a few ideas. Enjoy and don't forget to leave us your comments!~ Leandra
Hey there, Tracy here !!!.....I'm absolutely thrilled to share with you my first stamp release for PaperArtsy. When initially asked about designing some stamps my mind went into overdrive!! The possibilities were just endless but I knew very quickly that I wanted my first release to be stamps that I would want to use in my Art Journalling. I looked through some of my journals at the type of images I constantly drew on my pages and that became my starting point.
I really hope that the stamps will be used as a true multi purpose tool and will be equally at home on a greetings card, scrapbook page, journal page or mixed media project.
I hope you enjoy and I'd love to see what you do with the stamps xxx
Project One: Wild and Free Card
Step 1: using the Prima Confections watercolours, soak the watercolour paper with water and then let colours drip, spread, splatter and run on the paper to create a multi coloured background. Allow to dry fully.
Step 2: stamp the various flower heads from the 'Gothic blooms' stamp set all over the background. Once stamped cut out and put to one sides.
Step 3: stamp the 'wild and free' quote on a white square card blank and then arrange the coloured flowers on the card, gluing down in the centre allowing for the petals to be bent upwards.
Step 4: for the finishing touches I used a white signo uniball pen to add some highlights to the flowers and used a black gel pen to draw a rough border around the outside of the card.
Project Two: Retro Love
Step 1: fill up a sheet of watercolour paper with various stamped images from ETS01 using an archival waterproof ink pad. Using the watercolour confections from Prima loosely paint in circles around the stamps and then fill in any remaining areas with a different colour.
Step 2: Paint a 6x6" grey board sheet with black paint and put to one side to dry.
Step 3: Cut a 4x4" square from your painted pattern and mount onto a 5x5 piece of white card. Around the edge of the white card draw a rough black and white border and then attach this to the black painted board.
Step 4: draw the words for the title, I did this in pencil first so that I got the overlapping correct and then made permanent with black pen.
Step 1: using one of the Prima 2.5x4.25 inch watercolour pads, wet the paper with water and then using the Prima watercolour confections allow the colours to drip, blend and splatter into the paper to create your background. Allow to dry fully.
Step 2: stamp part of the 'believe' stamp from stamp set ETS02 along the edge of the paper lining it up so the word is in the middle.
Step 3: mount onto black card and with coloured pencils emphasise the colours and shading of the design. As a finishing touch I added some white gel pen and went over the design roughly with a black gel pen.
