2018 #15: Graphical Artist Trading Coins with ESN {by Etusko Noguchi}

2018 Topic 15: Artist Trading Coins

Everyone seems to be able to make this fun little substrate their own. In this post, Etsuko, from Japan, has created very bold designs with strong colours and placement, and I love how she has used the new paint colours so beautifully too! ~ Leandra

Hi everyone, it's Etsuko My favorite things with you today, and I'd like to share with you Artist Trading coins by Sara Naumann's new stamps.
Lovely Sara's new stamps are very abstract image, I decided to make the coins graphic design by collage.

First I've used images from the Sara Naumann's new stamp set ESN26.

And ESN27 set

Also I've used new Fresco Paints, Koala, Peach Nectar, Surf's Up, Pine Grove, Twilight and 

I made three master-boards with the new Fresco Paints and Chalk and Sara's new stamp for these backgrounds.

 I've used Peach Nectar, Koala, Surf"s Up and Chalk and Grunge Paste on the A4 Heavy White card.

Randomly brayered with Koala and Chalk.

I've used Sara's PS090 stencil with Peach Nectar and Brayered with Twilight.


I made embellishments to use for collage and made it texture with Glossy Accents and Glass Beads gel. I made small pieces using small stamps for embellishments time to time. 

I've used ESN26, ESN27 new stamps and lovely heart from ESN11.

The yellow star from ESN13, these colours are Lavender + Eggplant, Limelight  and Bougainvillea Fresco paints. Although it dose not have to trim but I add if there are many white parts on the card.

These coin's layers colours are Twilight, Peach Nectar and Pine Grove. When the focal point was decided for each coin, I collaged those embellishment. Here I placed 6 type layout coins, but you can make various coins by changing layers and colours.

It was fun to make coins image and it is another interesting to make an image in a circle. This play going to be an addiction!! If you feel interesting please join me and challenge PaperArtsy Blog. I'm looking forward to seeing your creations. 

Have fun!!
