NEW PaperArtsy Products {Scrapcosy} July 2018

July 2018
Eclectica³ Collection: Scrapcosy by Raquel Burillo

Raquel is back, and boy has she worked her socks off to create these amazing stamps and stencils. Each hand drawn to perfection, we both laboured over working, and reworking the designs until we felt they offered all kinds of creative options. Raquel does like a Vintage inspired theme, and this one is 'Tea Time'. Grab a cup of tea, relax, and let us usher you through a wealth of ideas from Raquel. 

First up she does love to share techniques with you, and Raquel has prepared 2 videos! (You may want to read the rest of the post, then come back to see these.) The first one one involves a large new collage stamp she drew, Violetta infusions and Grunge Paste the sample above. And below is the same sample with a bit of additional stamping and layering to finish.

And here's the first video...

In the second video, you will see Raquel create a journalling page layout, using paints, infusions, in a beautiful soft manner, with a great rust technique too!! She comes up with so many interesting ideas! Enjoy!

I'll hand over to Raquel to share a wide range of ideas with her 8 new products...
Hi everyone, Raquel here from scrapcosy

Today it's a very special day for me because I feel I'm sharing with you the collection of stamps that has always been in my mind to create: 100% tea related! ESC03 and PS051 were already a hint (tea import / map related). You can tell tea has a place in my heart when you read my blog header ends like “… all accompanied by a cup of tea”. I can’t picture a better crafting time than spending it with stamps, inks, tools, inspiration and a cup of tea. 

I can say I collect stamps but I think I can also say I collect tea-related things. I don’t have more vintage teacups and teapots because we don’t have enough space at home, so now I only allow myself to collect teas. I may have 75+ varieties of tea and, as it happens with crafting tools and inks, although you have many, you end up most of the time using the top favourites. In the crafting world, I always end up with Infusions or distress inks and in the tea world, I end up with a variety of earl grey among my top favourite 3 teas.

After reading Marie Kondo books, I knew I had to get rid of some teas and only keep those that I love and that spark joy on me, so I decided that instead of keeping them in labeled boxes and unattended for so long, I would do a final taste on them and decide whether I keep them or not. And I would do something special for that process: I would do a Tea Journal! Or you can call it an Art Journal about tea. And I would go through each tea, brew a teapot for me to drink it, smell it, do some journaling about it (where I got it, what was special, maybe I even have a picture that reminds me about it), use the tea itself to colour my pages, to add texture, save a couple of doses in the Journal (for a future re-taste) and then decide if I let it go or if I keep it. It will obviously take me ages (unless I did one per day, which I don’t think will be the case), but I think I will enjoy the journey a lot, even if it becomes a never-ending task…

So for this quest I needed tea stamps. Since I have a nice collection of teapots and tea cups I thought that it would be great to draw them so we can all enjoy them somehow. This is a picture of the real china elements I have turned into stamps now. These have become plain cups and teapots stamps, so you can add or doodle the pattern of your choice if you don’t want them so simple (although I like them simple, to be honest):

So now let's see all the products and few samples I've created with them!  

  New Stamps

Price: RRP £17.08 +VAT
Size: 5" x 6.5" (13cm x 16.5cm) 
All stamps are trimmed onto cling foam, and are presented in a clear bag with a laminated storage/ index sheet
Eclectica³ Scrapcosy Set 13 (ESC13)

With this stamp set, you have already seen the teapot sample in the video.  Above is another with oxide inks, stamped and layered. 

It's nice how the various collage elements can be made 3 dimensional.

I also used the tea mug collage to create one of the six coasters (more pictures at the end of the post). I really had fun just colouring the images. Keep an eye out for the lace of the stamp set which I haven't used yet. I'll show you later what I did with it.

Eclectica³ Scrapcosy Set 14 (ESC14)

Here I created a scene with the different elements of the tea set, although I also added some elements of other sets you'll see below. I wanted a soft finish so I went for infusions with water, to watercolour my images that were stamped using Versafine Smokey Gray. This type of ink is perfect for such detailed images. These stamps are VERY detailed.

Because we tend to think of fine bone China as white, it makes sense to stamp a teapot in grey ink. Shading in grey also can add shadows quite easily, like my original china.

The next sample is with 2 different oxide ink backgrounds. The lower level piece of card is over-stamped by the 'teas' script. The contrast of pink on green in pretty, but the grunge of the oxides still is cute with the Vintage Tea Part vibe. A simple construction but effective.

Eclectica³ Scrapcosy Set 15 (ESC15)

I'm a postage stamp collector (for crafting purposes only), and I always feel sorry to use my  postage stamps on projects, so as part of this set I decided to crate a collage that as you can see it's nice as stamped by itself...

The stamps could be used individually, or even layered individually, if you prefer. As above and below

...but it also nice to stamp as many as you need and create your own ephemera. Never run out of postage stamps again! 

I used here the cup-collage and added some volume by stamping again, cutting some of the flowers and sticking them back in place (paper piercing). 

I also added more volume and shine with glossy accents on some parts of the collage. It makes sense to do that one a white china teacup right?!

Eclectica³ Scrapcosy Set 16 (ESC16)

On some stamp sets I created collages for you, but with this one I give you individual images and elements so you can create your own collage as I did here with the laces, the cup and the spoon. 

I also enjoyed fussy cutting that tea plant and divided it in 2 to decorate the 2 opposite corners of this postcard. Embossing on vellum was something I've been wanting to try for so long! I did it here by stamping but also by stencilling (PS106 below) 

New Stencils

Price: RRP £4.60 +VAT
Size: Regular 6.5" x 7" (16cm x 18cm)
Stencil title (PS105)

I really enjoy adding a crackle touch to some projects but sometimes crackle textures or crackle mediums take time to dry and to actually crackle. With this stencil, you just need to apply grunge paste and heat set for a white crackle, or even better, if you want it as in above, you just need to apply versamark ink through the stencil and some clear embossing powder (I used UTE) and you will get a resist once all is heat set. Then colour the cracks that are not protected with a dark ink or paint and voila!

Here I applied Grunge Paste through the stencil on the tea word-cloud and I rubbed on some Delicata Brown ink (it's a pity you can't see the shine of the brown metallic from this angle) and a touch of dry brushed paint on top for yet more contrast. These words re going to be super-useful with texture!

Stencil title (PS106)

Of course it is so easy to apply ink through a stencil for a soft background effect like this one with Oxide inks

I love creating stencils that you can repeat over and over by repositioning them. And this one has a baroque like touch that reminds me of a vintage wallpaper. In this sample I used the stencil with Grunge Paste to create the background of the tag and to add that lace at the bottom. I used as well the new Fresco paints by Courtney Franich (Mulled wine, Blah Mange, Seaglass and Vintage lace) to create that monoprinting base and to paint my cups and the lace. You can see a sneak peek of PS108 as well on the top left background.

Stencil title (PS107)

Here I used the bump technique with the big floral stencil to decorate a corner of my art journal page.
Stencil title (PS108)

This stencil again can be repeated over and over to create bigger backgrounds, as I did in 3 of these 6 coasters I created. These are the reverse sides, all stencilled using ink on top of a background that was previously painted with the new Fresco Paints by Courtney Franich (I used Seaglass, Vintage Lace and Eggshell) and I coated all with UTEE and with a sprinkle of Vintage Beeswax Baked Texture Powders by Seth Apter / Emerald's creek.

And finally, of course, the stencil also looks amazing with paper and oxide inks and plenty of water, this effect is so pretty too!

Now I'll show you other samples that I would like to share with you as well. I hope you like them!

Project One: Coasters

I decided to create 6 coasters by stamping on the front and colouring images with infusions and satin glaze. My base is grey card stock

This is one of my favourites :)

And I stencilled the backs as you've seen before. I really like these, so simple but so striking.

Project Two: Tea Sheet

For my tea journal, which is still in progress, I decided to start with a Rooibos tea and I created like an index sheet that I coloured only with the Rooibos tea I was sipping at the time (one cup for me, one cup for my page)

I also added the tea itself (dry) in the spoon and attached it with glue (I used Mod Podge but any gel medium will work as well). I loved that after cutting the spoon, you can bend it and shape it, so it seems really 3 Dimensional !

And as you've seen before, I added some crackle with PS105 and some UTEE. I love the effect.

Project Three: Laces

I decided to create a sample with all the laces from all the sets and stamp the Keep Calm quote in the middle, which I double embossed in silver. I used the new paints by Courtney mixed with satin glaze to add colour on the laces, but for some of the laces I added too much paint and too little glaze, so they became too opaque. Still the effect is soft and subtle. What do you think? Do you like it? Its an easy background!

I enjoyed a lot playing with my new stamps. I know I'm not supposed to pick a favourite, but this release has made it to my top! I can see I will use it A LOT! You don't know how many other things I've done already. And I couldn't share them yet because it was a secret! Aaargh! But today, doors are open and these babies can finally see the world! Sharing time!!

Thanks for enjoying this release with me. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below, I would love to read them! And if you create things with them, tag me, I would love to see your projects! :)

SewPaperPaint said...

I am SPEECHLESS!!!!! Oh my goodness gracious! I never imagined this being the theme of Raquel's next set, but am sooooo glad that she's smarter than me and thought of this! Every plate is screaming beauty and each stencil had my jaw on the floor! We needed tiny repeat patterns in our PA stencil collections. :) I'm seriously SO SO excited I could bust! Bravo Raquel and PA HQ for an amazing release! <3 <3 <3

Lauren Hatwell said...

Well done Raquel! These are bound to be a hit! Everything is so pretty! Lx

PaperArtsy said...

Wooohooooo we did it!!! WHat an epic ride that was to get to this point, but oh so worth it, these stamps are going to be in use for YEARS!! Love them!

Raquel Burillo said...

Thanks so much Autumn! I'm happy you're not disappointed I didn't create the forest creatures (just yet:🤭) thanks for your feedback!! I'll respond more comments later, when I land in Stockholm! Yay!!

Raquel Burillo said...

Thanks so much Lauren!!😘😘

Raquel Burillo said...

Yay!! So happy!! Thanks again for everything!!

Jennie Atkinson said...

Absolutely fabulous new stamps and stencils Raquel ! I really love them all and will WANT them all !!! Fabulous samples too xxx

pearshapedcrafting said...

Oh wow! I NEED all of these....and I am not a tea drinker! Brilliant samples! Chrisx

Christine said...

Oh! Racquel - no wonder things have been quiet on the Scrapcosy front! WELCOME TO GREAT BRITAIN - well ENGLAND really - and one of the best things to come out of the country!
But WALES and Scotland are equally famous for their 'High Teas' - best taken round a log fire in the autumn / winter - toasting crumpets - and chestnuts - on the open fire! Somewhere between 4pm and 5pm normally!
What a fabulous collection for all of us afternoon-tea fans, but you've not forgotten the Coffee drinkers / 'Elevenses' either!
I love the 'Postage Stamps' / tea labels/stickers stamp-set.
You've really thought outside the box with this collection - well done! I'm going to have to run a retreat now - just so you can take a class on it!
~ Christine ~ xOx

Raquel Burillo said...

Thanks so much Miriam!! I'm really happy you like them!! 😘😘😘

Raquel Burillo said...

Thanks Jennie! I'm very happy you like them so much!!

Raquel Burillo said...

Wow! Are you sure you don't like tea? Hehe, thanks very much Chris!! 😘😘

Raquel Burillo said...

Hi Christine! Thanks so much, I'm very happy you like them! I wouldn't mind teaching a class in your retreat, just let me know when! And I want to try that High tea around the open fire, it sounds amazing and cosy! 😘😘
