NEW: Tracy Scott {by Carol Fox}

Jan 2019 New Products
Eclectica³ Collection {Tracy Scott}


We have Carol to share with you using Tracy's new stamps, and she has made a wonderful little booklet using a kind of masterboard idea in pretty, pop-pastels. Stockist info can be found here. First up, here is a reminder of Tracy's 3 stamps and stencils. ~ Leandra 




Hi everyone, it's Carol with you today.

I love layers, using the same stamp or very similar one as part of my layers on a project is something I do often. These stamp sets really appeal to me because of that concept, they mix and match so well and with this in mind I made 4 postcard sized pieces. mixing up two of the stamp sets and stencils and then joining them up into a little concertina book, because I do like a book. But these would work just as well as a card front or an individual postcard to send in place of a card as I often do. 


Throughout my project I used Fresco Finish Paints in, Bora Bora, Bubble Gum, Limelight and Banana along with my obligatory Snowflake and Little Black Dress and worked on Heavy Weight White Smoothy Card.


Using my paint and dry brushing I got lots of layers using the stamps and stencils.



Adding stamped images in coordinating colours added to my layers, stenciling over the top added more interest


Colouring some of the stamped dots and then adding more in a denser black adds even more layers.



Layered up onto the black background and adding stitching, to give a nice border.




Layered onto Kraft Card and joined with tape.



I like how the stitching gives it a little bit of a grungy feel.

I loved how the stamp sets worked so well together and the stencils were a treat to use as the larger shapes worked really well on my postcard sized backgrounds. I could have stopped at the stage where I had stitched them onto the black card and just used them as cards , or the stage before and used them as simple postcards to send through the post, but as previously mentioned I do like a book of any kind so their destiny was to be a concertina book, but I do with in retrospect wish I had used a thicker joining material as I think this would have made it more substantial, but hey-ho I now know that for next time.

Thank you for visiting today and you can find me at the following places.

NEW: Tracy Scott {by Clare Messenger}

Jan 2019 New Products
Eclectica³ Collection {Tracy Scott}



Well it will be no surprise to you that the sneak peek above generated a LOT of positivity on socials a week ago when we spilled the beans on this release! Clare has created the most vibrant and interesting layers with these stunning new stamps by Tracy. If you want to know more about stockist in your area, see this product announcement post here. I'm sure you are itching to read on so go ahead! ~ Leandra 

Hi everyone, it's Clare Messenger with you today.  Here's a reminder of Tracy's stunning new stamps, announced yesterday.




I love working with florals and I especially enjoy building up layers of flowers to create 3D art, art that just leaps right out at you!  First layering with paint stamps and stencils, adding texture to your piece and creating interest for the eye, building and embellishing your creation so that it comes to life!


The background stamps added so much focal interest, with a variation of shapes and patterns.  They will be a fabulous addition to use in my journal, I absolutely adore the bubbles I can see those being used for underwater scenes.



Tracy's new stencils are just so stunning!  Creating crisp stencilled flowers to add to your projects.  I would like to stencil these into my art journal and maybe have a go at some zentangle, the petals are spacious enough to create patterns of your own.



When I first saw the images of the flowers I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them!  They will be so versatile! I have a feeling that they will be making appearances on many a birthday card.  Contemporary blooms that are fun and diverse and sure to grace a mantle piece as well as a piece of mixed media art.


I really love how how the flowers cascade down the canvas.  They lend themselves to mixed media so much!  I cant wait to explore other colour ways, I'm also looking forward layering the flowers to add a further dimension. 


As I have already mentioned, I knew what I wanted to achieve as soon I saw the stamps!  I was overjoyed with the end result, however on reflection I feel I could have added more stamping into the background.  I think I hesitated over this as I didn't want to detract from the flowers.  Given that the blooms had the bold & bright hues to carry them, I shouldn't have worried! I'm really looking forward to using these in my journal, I see a very vivacious head-dress popping up at some point.  

Thank you to Leandra & Tracy for giving me  the opportunity to share these gorgeous stamps with everyone, they were a dream to work with!

Details of stockists can be found at the foot of this product announcement here.

Happy Crafting,

Clare Messenger

NEW PaperArtsy Products: January 2019 {Tracy Scott}

 Eclectica³ Collection {XX}
January 2019 New Product Announcement


A note from Leandra:
If you've been following Tracy on Instagram this past year, you will have seen all the doodling she does, usually when she is on holiday somewhere! As with all of our designers who hand-draw their stamps for us, often their Instagram accounts and their doodling gives you a hint of what to expect from their new releases.


Mandala style patterns have been very prominent in Tracy's holiday doodles, and this vibe is certainly reflected in her latest stamps and stencils. She also has added to her popular scribbled style, with contrasting bold and line stamps and other geometric elements to build layers with ease. So there is much to like about this release!



Hi everyone, Tracy here

I'm super excited to share with you my newest release for PaperArtsy. 3 stamps and coordinating stencils.


Most of you will be aware but for those who are new to me, and my arting style, may need to know that I love to add doodled elements in my work.


Interesting shapes, patterns, drawn elements, scribbles, splatters all make regular appearances in my journals and I'm constantly asked if these are stamps?.... so of course these sparked the idea of creating some of my favourite elements into stamps for everyone to use.

Now although I frequently work in my art journals I think I have designed a range of stamps that can be used in all of your art and craft projects, from scrapbook layouts to cards, and mixed media projects to ATC's and I cant wait to see what you come up with for the new releases.

Over the next couple of days, we will be sharing ideas with my newest products by myself and 2 of PaperArtsy's lovely talented bloggers. You can also see ideas on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest. So no matter what your preferred social media platform, we will be sharing with you! Happy New Year!

Let's start with some ideas with each of the new products.

  New Stamps
Price: RRP £18.74 +VAT
Size:5" x 6" (13 x16.5cm)
All stamps are individually trimmed onto cling foam, presented in a clear hanging bag
with a laminated storage/index sheet.

  
Eclectica³ Tracy Scott Set 23 (ETS23)




One of my favourite things to do, particularly when I am on holiday or a little trip away is to draw mandalas (go check out my instagram @tr4cy1973 ), I find the very practice relaxing and just love to see how each one emerges from the blank page.  It was inevitable really that they would make an appearance in one of my stamp releases.
I just know that this stamp set will be perfect for my beloved art journals but will be equally at home in all of your art and craft applications.

Eclectica³ Tracy Scott Set 24 (ETS24)






As I mentioned before, I love to add elements to my backgrounds when I am creating and to be honest I am not a real neat and tidy kind of a girl, hence most of my drawings end up being quite scribbly, messy and imperfect (just the way I like them!)
These stamps are no exception; scribbly elements mixed with solid designs taken from my own hand made foam stamps, I adore the contrast that I get between the two..... and just look at that 'eye'..... one of my favourite images of all time and it just had to be included in one of the sets.

Eclectica³ Tracy Scott Set 25 (ETS25)





Ok so who doesn't love a flower?.... well we all know that I do and scribbled splatty flowers are simply the best kind aren't they?.
Continuing the theme from ETS25,  I just couldn't stop myself at only one set of these scribbled beauties (to be honest I probably could have made countless sets its so easy to get carried away in this carefree style!) All of these elements in both of these scribbled sets will work effortlessly in my journal but will be equally at home on cards and scrapbook layouts as well as all other arts and crafts, mixed media applications.


New Stencils
Mini Size: 3.5" x 3.75" (9 x 9.5cm) Price: RRP £2.50 + VAT
Regular Size: 6.5" x 7" (16 x 18cm) Price: RRP £4.60 + VAT
Large Size: 6.25" x 9.5" (16 x 24cm) Price: RRP £5.40 +VAT
  
PaperArtsy Stencil 124 (PS124)





Ok moving onto stencils, well we've already established that I love a mandala, but one of my other passions at the moment is paper cutting in my journal, and if you saw my last release of stencil/masks you will know that these evolved from my hand cut designs.(again lots to see on instagram about my classes).
Well this release is no different and my new designs including this fabulous mandala design were hand cut pieces that have then been turned into stencils.
In the project above I have used in the traditional way and stencilled the image directly onto my card but I also envisage this being used as a template for cutting your own designs in journals and on cards alike! 

PaperArtsy Stencil (PS125)





This fabulous stencil/mask was designed to match perfectly with ETS 24 and a square scribbled flower,  however in the project above I have stencilled in multiple colours and haven't used the entire mask so that I was able to create a beautiful sunburst effect.  All products should be have multiple uses and I try my best when designing to envisage other ways to use them other than the obvious intended purpose. What other uses can you see for this product?

PaperArtsy Stencil 126 (PS126)




What do you see?..... a beautiful scribbled flower or fabulous extended eyelashes?
I love the adaptablility,  and for this project I actually used the mask as a template, drawing it out onto the yellow/orange painted card and cutting out with my scissors and a craft knife giving a different look again than the usual stencilling process, and allowing it to really stand out against the darker background.
This stencil/mask coordinates perfectly with ETS25 but I really can see this and the square scribbled flower mask being a great addition to be used on scrapbook pages where larger elements may be required.

Painted Stamped Mandala

 
Why not try this easy and simple to create stamped and painted mandala using the ETS23 stamp set.

First I laid down a painted base of painted circles in various colours on a 12x12 piece of 340gsm smoothy card (you can use a compass to draw the circles first if you need to!)
Once this was dry, I began adding my stamped elements to my painted circles to create a pattern.
To finish I used my black and white pens to add highlights and doodled elements to fill in the spaces and add detail.

So many possibilities with this project and so fun to make.... go try it today.


Layered Mandala Element



How about these layered mandala elements that can be used in all of your crafting projects, they would be equally beautiful on a card or scrapbook project as well as making an appearance on an item for home d├ęcor or in a journal,  and so easy and simple to make.

I started with 2 pieces of 240gsm A4 smoothy card, one of those pieces of card I painted in a mix of Cherry Red, Smoked Paprika & Tangerine Twist (obviously you can use your favourite colours!) and the other I left white and unpainted.
Then I started to stamp various images from the ETS123 stamp set onto both pieces of card, cutting out all the images once stamped (some of the stamped images I just cut parts of the design to add interest)
I then layered up the elements with 3D foam and added a stamped word to create interesting focal points ready to be added to my future projects.

Easy to create and lots and lots of variations by cutting all or parts of the stamped images.

I had an absolute blast creating these samples for you today and I do hope that you have enjoyed popping over to see my new releases, and the post has left you full of inspiration and ideas for your own upcoming projects.
If you do create projects with my stamps and stencils I do love to see them and you can find me of the social media sites below (I am always contactable to please do not hesitate to show me your work.

Thank you for stopping by and don't forget there will be more samples to follow in the next day or so, so please do come back soon.
