NEW PaperArtsy Products {JoFY Collection}

The JoFy Collection

If you follow Jo on social media platforms, you will know how much she likes to doodle. She is constantly adding her own squiggles, dots and swirls onto her layers, and this release was influenced heavily to the point where we get doodles inside doodles and flowers, and more! This is perfect for colouring, layering, isolating parts of images and lots more too. 

Take a look at these gorgeous new designs!



Over the next 3 nights we have Jo Firth-Young and 2 of our talented bloggers presenting these fabulous new products to you in 3 different ways. 

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

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

I think these might be my prettiest, happiest stamp sets yet! They make me smile each time I pick them up to use them and I hope they'll make you feel the same!

I really like the doodle details - great for paper-piecing, colouring, 3D layering & I like to doodle on top to extend the design and make them more delicate. 

Tonight I wanted to give you a sense of what I might get up to with these stamps, but over the next 2 nights, you'll get plenty more inspiration from 2 other fantastic bloggers in their preferred style.

'Framed flowers'  by Jo Firth-Young

I enjoyed making these 5x7 inch canvas boards so much! It's great to see them side-by-side, the same but different.  I used the new stamps but also leaves from JOFY49 released earlier this year in order to demonstrate how seamlessly the sets blend together. It's a lot of fun to choose common elements to use across the canvasses - colours, stencils, images.

The more I work with the designs the more options I see in them.  For example when I was making the (6x4in) canvas below I needed something for the flower stem to stand on...... the answer was to stamp the big circle onto book text, cut it in half and create not just one but TWO hills!! Perfect!

By doodling over the top of the stamped image in a contrast ink colour (I used white) it extends and changes the design - I think it makes it more delicate.

Junk Journal Spreads by Jo Firth-Young

I have a junk journal I play in - it's made up of 5 signatures sewn into an old book cover. The signatures are made up of this-and-that (gelli plate prints, envelopes, pages of book text and music score) and it's somewhere where I just 'play'.  Below you can see a few pages I made with the new stamps.

When I receive the new designs I stamp them onto plain paper so I can play around to see how they could work on projects. Some were lying around on my desk so I used them on this spread as flowers stems on a background of sprayed ink. Drawing around the bottom edges of the flowers gives them depth.

But then I started thinking: I can't always have the images growing from the ground - what if I dangled them... So simple but sooo pretty - great for a christmas card!

My final junk journal spread isn't quite finished (it's hard to decide when a page is 'finished' isn't it!) - there's still doodling to be done!  I mixed stamped circles, painted stamped circles (leftovers from other projects) with freehand doodling.. endless possibilities....

'Happy' card by Jo Firth-Young

I planned these designs with paper-piecing in mind and this relatively simple card shows how the stamps can be used.  I used scrapbook papers with white pen and Fresco Finish paint detailing.

I'm really enjoying using these stamps - I hope you do too! I look forward to seeing what everyone creates and over the next couple of days you'll see what my fabulous 'wingmen' created with these two new sets... gorgeous projects!

This seems the perfect time to say a big 'thank you' to them for their hard work.

Time for me to go - I can feel some stamping, doodling and painting coming on!

Take care
