NEW PaperArtsy Products {Eclectica³ Sara Naumann} by Sara Naumann

Eclectica³ : Sara Naumann

Sara is back with a selection of fabulous compositional collage stamps. We love how she has brought elements together to products fabulous designs that are timeless. She still has the gorgeous scattered words and phrases that we love to use, and all of these will look amazing when teamed with her new stencils.

Over the next 3 nights, Sara and 2 more of our talented bloggers will share some wonderful ideas with these fabulous new products to you in totally different ways. 

All these new products are available from your PaperArtsy stockists now. See the list at the foot of this post. ~ Leandra

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

I love creating collage pieces—it's actually one of the most relaxing art-related things I do. There's something about the cutting and piecing and gluing that puts me into an instant zen space. (Yes, I do this old-school with scissors and glue stick!) I think these two stamp sets are my most personal, coming from my stash of photos and ephemera bits. 

Tonight I wanted to give you a sense of how I'm using one of the new stamps and one of the stencils, but over the next 2 nights, you'll see even more inspiration from 2 other fantastic bloggers using the other two items in the collection.

'Daring Adventure using ESN22 and PS063 by Sara Naumann 

Creating a cluster of elements in the center (or center-ish) of the piece helps to make a bold statement on a card. This is where you can really have fun stamping and stenciling and grouping pieces together, with foam mounting squares to create dimension.

I wanted the collage stamps to be good companions with some of my other favorite art supplies, like Infusions. Simply stamping the elements in black gives an easy contrast to the abstract background. For reference, I used Slime, Frankly Scarlet and A Bit Jaded for the background.

I love pulling stencil images "out" from the stencil itself...using embossing ink through the stencil and covering with powder is a good way—this also allows me to cut out the branch and use it as an embellishment.

The quote "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing" from Helen Keller is one of my favorites, and I love how the long stamped sentiment "grounds" the overall design.

I am really so very excited to share these new stamps and stencils with you. My goal is to offer you tools that you can use right away to create your own designs—whether that's for cardmaking, altered art, home decor or other paper crafts. There's a lot of potential here...I think they give us substantial key focal elements, and give you the option to do your own collaging if you wish. 



You can find me teaching at the following venues over the next few months: Aberdaron, Wales in October 9-14, 2017!

We love this idea Sara. The use of bright colour in the background really allows the collage stamped and layered on top to pop. These are going to be so useful, and I cannot wait to see what the others get up to with these!

Sara's release is, as always, a great addition for backgrounds (and more). All the SN sets I have are my go-to(s) and this one would get lots of use too! Lovely sample as well, with Sara's unique, almost CAS Mixed Media style.
