NEW PaperArtsy Products: January 2019 {Scrapcosy}

 Eclectica³ Collection {Scrapcosy}
January 2019 New Product Announcement

A note from Leandra:
In 2017, Raquel curated a gorgeous collection of vintage elements reflecting the themes of tea, flowers and postage across 4 stamp sets. These 2 new stamp sets and stencils are additional elements to complement the first 4 perfectly. I think the Vintage vibe and effects sit so well within this collection, a reminder of yesterday elegance.

Raquel creates beautiful vintage effects with PaperArtsy infusions and grunge paste and you will see these ideas in her samples, or if you follow her on YouTube, Instagram or her blog she shares fantastically detailed information on her preferred techniques, such as the example above.
~ Leandra

Hi everyone, Raquel here from

I'm super excited to share with you my newest release for PaperArtsy: 2 stamps and coordinating stencils.

As you may know by now, I love vintage flowers and butterflies and other decorative vintage elements, so for this release I wanted to create 2 stamp sets with one big flower arrangement each, so we can simply stamp and colour and besides these, I wanted to add other surrounding elements that can help creating nice backgrounds and sentiments. Similarly, for the stencils, I went for my usual: patterns and sentiments. In this case just 2 patterns but lots of sentiments, since at the end of the day, I love stenciling these titles and use them as focal points in some of my creations.

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 Scrapcosy Set 17 (ESC17)

I love these flowers. I mixed my favourite blossoms and my favourite leaves to make this bouquet combination which is created to fit on size #8 tags (I love them as a substrate!). And those background herbs - I can't wait to emboss them in gold! I was going to just stamp and fussy cut the butterfly once, but I wanted to give it proper wings, so it's done twice and glued in 3D (using foam and bending it) so that gives it a very airy, dimensional finish. 

The sentiment 'be CURIOUS and follow your TRUTH' has been edited to use the alternative words 'NATURAL' and 'INSTINCT' at the top of the plate, which allows you to say something different. So you can mix and match the words as you prefer (4 different combinations if you do your maths). And I haven't used the ribbons from the stamp set, but as you may have seen on the first sample that Leandra shared, that these are perfect to frame sentiments. When I did my previous release (tea related) I found the ribbons really useful, so I wanted to add a couple more.

Eclectica³ Scrapcosy Set 18 (ESC18)

I really enjoy browsing old flower catalogues from past centuries, and in one of them I found a letter from the company owner in a hand-written style font that I fell in love with. It's perfect for backgrounds or even to stamp into Grunge Paste. And the round postmark had to be included here too. 

In my previous tea collection release I added a few postmarks and now with this stamp, you add an extra vintage-mail related touch to your floral project. When I found these flowers I knew they were perfect to colour and fussy-cut, so it was no-brainer, they had to be here as well (and again, perfect for a size 8 tag!). And the butterfly, well, I just love these creatures, so why not add an even bigger version than before, so easy to cut and bend it to set it to fly!     

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 133 (PS133)

Stencils are very versatile, and for this sample I went for a flat finish, no volume, created with distress oxides. But you can use many other things with them: fresco paints, infusions and glaze, ink sponged through or just a spray. Or you can go for volume and apply Grunge Paste to create 3D sentiments. I decided to incorporate the same sentiment from the stamp set into the stencil. This stencil offers another sentiment 'bloom like a rose' that would 100% coordinate with a previous stamp set of mine (ESC04). 

There are 2 patterns on this stencil and you could overlap them if you wished or you can just extend one of the patterns by repositioning it (I always try to allow that possibility, you never know how big your canvas will be!). I wanted open gaps in this stencil, so it can also be used with your gel-plates. I've made videos of all these samples, I'll share them on my YouTube channel.

PaperArtsy Stencil 134 (PS134)

For so long I have wanted to add a 'Fleur de Lis' somewhere... so finally here! I decided to go for a patterned stencil that can be repeated to the infinite and beyond! In this sample I went for the same technique as before, using it with distress oxides and micro glaze, but as mentioned, it can be used with many other things and of course in my case, I will use it so much with Grunge paste! I love 3D stencilled areas. And since I love to work on size 8 tags, these sentiments will fit, allowing you to create customised present labels for any occasion. You can say I went for a practical approach this time... Tip: try stencilling the pattern once and then match it upside down, you get a brand new pattern, very cool!

Quick project: Smudge with oxides and bump effect with Grunge Paste

I decided to go for a smudge technique to get 4 quick cards in no time. If you want to see this technique, you can watch any of these 2 videos from my Youtube Channel that I did in the past and enjoy the detailed pictures of these 4 cards further below:

First select your ink. The darker coloured Distress Oxide inks (part dye part pigment) will work better for this smudge technique. The technique explores the fact that we separating the pigment (slow drying) from the dye (fast drying) when we smudge so you need a dark dye that defines your image and rest of the ink (pigment side) will add colour when you deliberately smudge it around (without fear, ladies and gentlemen! Be quick and rough or you won't get any effect at all!). I've chosen Faded Jeans, Aged Mahogany, Forest Moss and Vintage Photo, stamped my image one at a time and smudged  with cut and dry foam

In all cases, after stamping I add more ink to the background around the edges of each image, trying to keep the elements (the flowers in this case) with highlighted white areas, so you get a kind of 3D effect. 

Next, add some splashes of water (with spray or dropping some small droplets on your surface) and either let it air-dry or dry it off with a heat tool.

Once the background is ready, you can select the stencil of your choice and apply a first dark layer with an ink (waterproof). In this case I selected Versafine ink 'fallen leaves' and I applied it through the stencil.

And finally magic comes when you re-position the stencil where it was, you shift it up 3mm and left 3mm (roughly, the more you shift it, the bigger the shadow) and apply Grunge paste through stencil. Lift stencil and watch the WOW outcome. 

That is all from me for today! I hope you like my new release! I'm very excited and by the time you read this I should be in Phoenix, heading back home after the Creativation show! I would love to know what you think about the new products so feel free to share any thoughts or comments you have.

Teaching Schedule:
No more face to face teaching until later in the year, I'm afraid. You will only see me on YouTube for as I'm expecting a baby! Surprise! So by end of April, I'm super-excited that I will be a new mum taking care of him. I expect it will be time consuming and he will need all my attention, therefore I can only expect to see you on-line occasionally, until I get used to my new mum life! I will really miss seeing you in person in the different shows, but don't worry, time will come when I'll be back! Maybe I'll bring him there as well! And I hope to still squeeze time to curate new product ideas for Mark and Leandra! We will see how it goes, wish me luck! I'm really excited but also terrified! OK, enough from me. See you soon! :)
