NEW {Eclectica³ Sara Naumann} with Miriam Grazier

Frame Art with Miriam Grazier


Tonight we have another take on how to use Sara's stamps from Miriam Grazier. Miriam has managed to use the stamps in under layers to create the background as well as creating a beautiful focal point on top too.

Here is a reminder of Sara's new stamps and stencils ...ESN21/22, PS062/063

Hi everyone, Miriam here to show you an idea with Sara's brand new stamps she has designed for PaperArtsy.

I literally squealed when I opened a package to find Sara's new stamps and stencils. Straight away I had loads of ideas spinning around in my head - this release can be perfect for clean and simple projects, cards and more complex mixed media projects.

The stamps can easily be used on their own or as part of a collage.  There are also lots of useful 'filler' stamps (what I call stamps that can be used in a blank space). The stencils have good sized images that can be used for large or small projects.  The stencils are also the same quality as all PaperArtsy stencils which means that they can withstand so much more than ink - paint, Grunge Paste, texture paste.  I also thought that this release is perfect to be used with other releases of Sara's.

I loved working with these stamps and stencils.  The collage stamps, like the dragonfly, are really detailed and stamp perfectly.  When I first got the stamps I kept seeing new detail every time that I looked at them.  I also thought that ESN21 has a Spring / Summer feeling to it, which influenced the colours that I chose for my project as they are light and fresh.   

There was a lot of texture on my up-cycled frame.  Had the frame been a little more plain it would have been great to use Grungepaste through the stencils to add complimenting texture from the release.  It would have also been a good idea to use parts of the stamps to add extra interest to the frame.

You can see from my sample how well all of the products work together - the stamps, stencils, Fresco Finish paints and even the Treasure Silver.  The paints cover the frame so well, and it was only one coat of Chalk paint as a base.

And here is my complete, finished sample using Sara's fabulous new stamps and stencils, paired with Fresco Finish Paints and Treasure Gold.  It surprises me how few products I needed to use to create a fresh, detailed project.

I'm keen to try a grungier effect with bolder colours using these products - it's just a shame that I don't have an identical frame to make a proper contrast!

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed using Sara's new stamp and stencils release.  Hopefully you can see it through my project.  It really made me think about warm Summer evenings - sat outside with a glass of wine, watching the dragonflies flutter by.  Thank you to Leandra and Sara for giving me the opportunity to play, I mean create with the new products.  I hope that I have inspired you tonight and I am sure that you will love Sara's new release as much as I do.  If you pop over to my blog you will be able to see the step by step of how I created my framed art.
