NEW: JoFY Collection {by Anneke de Clerck}

Jan 2019 New Products
The JoFY Collection

Hi everyone, Anneke is with you today to share something with Jo's newest stamps announced 2 days ago here, but first up, here's a quick reminder of Jo's newest stamps. 



I'd like to share with you an art journal spread I made in my large Dylusions journal. The flowers Jo designed are really big. They have the perfect size to use in a large journal. To create the background I applied one of my favorite techniques: building layers using paint, tissue paper, stencils and stamps.

A quick way to color large pages is printing with a small gel printing plate.

I started by picking some colors, my favorite part of the job :) On this spread I've chosen to work with PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics Cerise, Mermaid, Coral, Pixie Dust, Blah Mange, Caribbean See and Zesty Zing.

I used a small gel printing plate (Gel Press Petites: 3-inch Square), loaded the plate with 2 different colors and made some marks or scribbles into the paint before printing.

I filled both pages by creating color blocks. After coloring the spread I toned down the colors in some places and made the edges of the color blocks less visible. To do so I applied stripes of Fresco Finish Snowflake on the gel plate using my fingers, then printed. I added white dots on some of the color blocks using my fingers. I continued adding white paint until I was happy with the result.

 Next I adhered torn strips of washi tape (Dina Wakley Media Collage Paper) randomly.

I added stenciling using PS132 with Fresco Finish Snowflake and PS131 with Fresco Finish Blah Mange.

The orange pattern was done with a stamp from the JOFY 73 set and Archival Ink Tiger Lily.

I highlighted some of the marks on the gel prints using a white pen. I added white details to the pink squares too.

I stamped 3 flowers on gesso-ed book text using the flower stamp from the JOFY 73 set. After cutting out I adhered them to the pages as shown. For a playful effect I attached some black thread underneath each flower. I stamped small circles from the JOFY 71 set on book text as well and used these circles to further decorate the pages.

I finished the spread off by stamping text from the JOFY 72 set.

On this photo you can see how all the layers come together.

I'm very fond of the JOFY collection. I use the stamps and stencils on a regular base on my projects. In my opinion all the sets match with each other, that's why they are so fun to play with. The possibilities are endless!
For this blogpost I made an art journal spread but I've already used the new JOFY stamps and stencils on cards as well. The large flowers look awesome on cards too! Keep an eye on my blog or Instagram account, I'll post the cards there in the coming days.

In the meantime I hope you'll put some of Jo's new stamps or stencils on your wish list. You certainly won't regret :) And of course I would love to see what you make with the new JOFY products.

These products are available NOW from PaperArtsy stockists, see here for details.

Thanks for stopping by!
