NEW PaperArtsy Products {JoFY Collection} with Clare Messenger

NEW {JoFY} Collection Jan 2018

Clare creates such amazing ideas with her love of simple lines and striking colour combinations. She has an awesome bunch of wonderful ideas with Jo's stamps, and is particularly good at highlighting the doodled designs within each stamped image.

Hi everyone, Clare here, I was so excited to be involved with Jo's new release stamps.  The images are absolutely stunning and they are BIG!  They offer so many opportunities for colour ways, collage and layering.  I can't wait to get them into my journal and fill my pages with these amazing blooms.

JoFY A5 stamp sets 
6" x 7" (15 x 18cm) trimmed stamps on EZ mount foam
 RRP £20.50 (incl VAT)
Jo is well known for her floral designs, and following on from last summer, Jo has added to her designs some more intricate, doodled elements, which are super-fun! As ever, you will find some useful borders, backgrounds, words, and even some solid elements to add those finishing touched and details to your cards, journal pages, scrapbook layouts or canvas art.

JoFY Collection Set 59 (JoFY59)

Divine Creation JoFY59

I adore the doodled flowers with their beautiful, intricate details.  I could while away many hours colouring and adding in doodles of my own to change it's appearance and give the blooms their own identity.

I would love to try stamping on to patterned papers to see what effects this would create or add layers to the flowers by layering the patterns available on the petals.

JoFY Collection Set 63 (JoFY63)

Alphabet Foliage JoFY63

These stamps, in my eyes, are a staple of every stampers craft box.  This beautiful stamp set is alive with with foliage of all shapes and sizes for you to use on your layouts and will go hand in hand with all of Jo's new release stamps and stencils.

The alphabet line is one of my favourites!  I am envisaging using this in the future in my backgrounds along with creating exciting borders to frame  my work.

JoFY Collection Set 64 (JoFY64)

Aloha JoFY64

I absolutely fell in love with this stamp set the moment I set eyes on it.  The flower heads are so big and full. The blooms remind me of Hawaiian flowers.  They really are a colourists dream, for my next project using these I am looking forward to getting out my watercolour pencils and practice my shades and tones.

These beautiful blooms will grace any journal spread and make an amazing focal point!  I love decorating wooden plaques and I intend on creating one using these sensational stamps.

As you know, there are 3 more stamp sets that new from Jo in this release, and Keren and Jo shared samples with those in the previous 2 posts. Just as a reminder, and for your reference, here they are:

JoFY Minis 
credit card size trimmed stamps on EZ mount foam
 RRP £4.80 (incl VAT)
Jo's minis have always proved popular as supplementary images to the large stamp sets. For this release there are more of the doodle style intricate flowers, some fab geometric elements and the much asked for small alphabets that are great as backgrounds, to to use as a tiny alphabet.

Mini Text Tag

On this tag I have used both JM63 & JM64.  Jo's handwriting is amazing and I'm sure you will agree that adding text, lettering or numerical print onto your project always gives the eye something more for to glide over.

I cut out a small tag, from some Smoothy card, that had been painted with some PaperArtsy Fresco Acrylic, Antarctic.

Using mini stencil PM012 & Lake Wanaka Fresco paint I sponged through the stencil to add contrast to the pale Antarctic paint.

Working with JM63 & JM64 I stamped, using the Lake Wanaka paint, around the tag before attaching the bloom & foliage.

 PaperArtsy LARGE stencils
 6.25" x 9.5" (16cm x 24cm) RRP £6.50 (incl VAT)
These large stencils are fabulous for large format journal pages, or canvas art, and are a new addition to the JoFY line as far as size goes! Bigger is always better, and you can see the large flower (PS082) offers magnificent shadow options for the matching stamps in set JoFY 64.

LARGE PaperArtsy Stencil & Masks 082 (PS082)
(please note with this stencil you also get the masks (flowers)

LARGE PaperArtsy Stencil 083 (PS083)

Fizzing Flowers

Using the Stencil PS083 I inked onto my card, through the stencil, with Versamark, watermark ink.

With some mica powders I carefully brushed over the inked image with a couple of different colours.

I added some additional stamping from set Jofy63 and Mini stamp JM58.

I stamped the flower heads, from Jofy63, on to some Smoothy card, which had already been painted using PaperArtsy Fresco Paint, a blend of prawn and chalk.  With some pencils I added some shading and carefully cut them out so that I could assemble my project. 

PaperArtsy REGULAR stencils
6.5" x 7" (16cm x18cm) RRP £5.50 (incl VAT)
Jo has a wide assortment of stencils, and this offering has a mix of floral, geometric, bold and fine. The 2 lowers ones 'pop out' of the surrounding mylar creating a mask, useful for gelli  printing. And the floral pattern within is also repeated in stamped images, both on JoFY  Minis, and regular stamp sets.

REGULAR PaperArtsy Stencil 084 (PS084)

REGULAR PaperArtsy Stencil 085 (PS085)

REGULAR PaperArtsy Stencil 086 (PS086)

Geo Flower

I made this quick little card by stencilling onto black card. I used Chalk coloured Fresco paint through stencil PS086.  The coverage is awesome!

The flowers from Jofy62 work perfectly with this stencil so using the smallest bloom I stamped, coloued and attached to my card.

I cant wait to explore more with this stencil on my Gelli plate.  With the marvellous, geometric shapes it will certainly make for some interesting prints.

PaperArtsy MINI size stencils 
3.5" x 3.75" (9cm x9.5cm) RRP £3.00 (incl VAT)
These are a new format for Jo with gorgeous baby stencils that are super fun for your backgrounds to add depth and layering to your mixed media crafting.A nice addition to the JoFY line on products.
