NEW PaperArtsy Products: March 2019 {Courtney Franich}

 Eclectica³ Collection {Courtney Franich}
March 2019 New Product Announcement

A note from Leandra:
Courtney got on a roll pretty fast when she was playing around with the designs for these stamps. As a uni-grad in lens based media, she initially was doing the opposite of her 'training' creating the designs old school; literally cutting holes in leaves! But after some photo shop play, she soon switched direction into digital mode and then her brain was fizzing and popping! Our stockists have been pre-ordering these ready for you to swoop, so check the list at the foot of the page, or drop by our facebook group 'PaperArtsy People' for a fast response from a retailer near you. ~ Leandra

Hi everyone, Courtney here

So after my last release there has been an ongoing joke here at HQ about my stamps. Mark really didn't want to follow instructions about size of one particular set, and they ended up being super popular, so the 'I told you so' phrase has been used quite a lot since then! So at least we now know that you guys seem to like the same things I like too!

I was collecting dried leaves for ages before making these stamps, and that was a bit weird as it was pre-autumn at the time, but when you are looking, there are always plenty on the ground to choose from.  For years we have collected Vintage ephemera elements here at PA HQ, so there is always a big box to go through and dust off too! Lets face it, you can't have too many scripty stamps can you?

Tomorrow we have a new PA blog contributor to share her take with the stamps, but for today, here are some samples that Leandra and I whipped up as soon as the first rubber came out of the presses! Always so exciting!

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.

Eclectica Collection: Courtney Franich Set 05 (ECF05)

 Minimal Leafage
I started with a simple colour palette of brown, mustard and rust, which partly reflects these were designs I worked on from Summer through autumn 2018.

Adding 2 colours of ink to a leaf stamp creates a depth of colour, and a few 'Golden Sands' infusions sprinkled and gently spritzed and you are good to go!

Eclectica Collection: Courtney Franich Set 06 (ECF06)

Bare Min
Does this count? It is such a ridiculously simple sample! But I just loved how the image stamped up, I couldn't bring myself to do any more! A strip of infused card to the side, and I was on a side-kick of punching holes from paper, so this was it! Card done!

When I created the stamp I spent a ages selecting sections of leaves, rotating them so the veins were going in different directions, and you never quite know how much of the fine detail will stamp up as you hope once the final rubber comes out of the press. This was brilliant, absolutely chuffed! It can be a background layer too, or not.

Project One: Repeating Circles

As I mentioned above, I got a bit obsessed about circles. The leaves had circles removed from them, and I always use book pages when I make anything, so I was just playing about with infusions, circles, book pages and the leaves.

Can you see the text on the leaf above?? That is NOT part of the stamp design. That was a happy accident that blew our socks off!!! **new technique alert**  Well maybe you ahve twigged to this before, but it was new to us!!

Leandra filmed me showing her and Lauren this technique, and you can hear thier amazement, and see it yourself on the @paperartsy instagram story saved as a highlight under ECF. THEN you will understand! 

I think the fact that the book page we used is REALLY old, one of those where you can feel the script is raised from the printing process, so you are literally going to have to go through your book stash and find an old book with thick pages where the printing on the page is textured to achieve this effect! Good luck! Oh and it seemed to work better with dark archival ink vs light too!

Project Two: Falling Leaves

This really was just a play with arranging leaves. In hindsight I wished I had used a variety of rusty colours rather than one ink for the leaves arranged on the top layer. But I was a bit more obsessed with the punched holes, and what you could see peeks of through them.

Project Three: Collage

So Leandra actually made this one for a class she taught at the Stitches tradeshow recently. In the background you can see the script stamp was stamped in white paint, and with infusions on top, acts as a resist. She also found some scrapbooking papers from the depths of her stash (bird image).
The leaf image (one of my favourite designs, in fact it might be the fave!) was stamped in shades of 2 rusty archival inks, trimmed. And other layers like dressmaking pattern, a tag were also layered up.

A few other embellishments (postage image ) were scattered about to finishe of what is also a fairly simple composition.

So overall a less-is-more kind of post from me, but the great thing about leaves is they have flexibility to be used in so many ways.
