NEW: Tracy Scott Products {with Clare Messenger}

September 2019 New Products
Eclectica³ Collection {Tracy Scott}

Master-boards are a wonderful way to add interest to any floral arrangement stamped over the top. Clare has chosen contrasting colours to make everything pop perfectly, and the stamped designs sing beautifully on her gorgeous background. ~Leandra

Below is a reminder of Tracy's new stamps, stencils and paints announced yesterday. Please see yesterday's post here for a list of current stockists who have these items in stock ready for you.


Hi everyone, it's Clare with you today and it's my turn to share with you Tracy Scott's  sensational new stamp designs which come along with a trio of stencils to compliment your creativity!

With the autumn months approaching and the nights starting to draw in I find myself longing for a new read and thought it might be interesting to combine my love of reading and crafting into a readable, crafting combination.  No pages of this book have been ripped, torn or shredded, promise!

My chosen book was completely inexpensive as it was one I found whilst mooching around a charity shop.  With a lovely hardback cover, it was perfect substrate to layer on my Paperartsy Fresco paint.

I gave both the front and back cover a coat of Chocolate pudding before applying a coat of PaperArtsy crackle effect glaze through Tracy's new stencils.

Once the crackle glaze had dried I added a wash of Nougat over the book cover and watched the vintage swirls appear as if by magic.

Inspired by some beautiful stain glass windows, that I recently saw, I selected my colour palette and opted to make some very simple master-boards,on PaperArtsy smoothy card.  

The flowers that Tracy has drawn for us have such exquisite detail that spending too much time on creating a beautiful master-board  would be considered a waste.  I stamped the flowers onto the master-board, fussy cut and did a little flower arranging.

These flowers, I'm sure, are going to be 'go to' stamps!  They are classic in design but are versatile in the respect they can be be used on a variety of different types of projects. We all know that Tracy loves to art journal but for card makers these stamps will provide you with a plethora of cards & sentiments to see you through the year. 

Using some of the left over yellow master-board I cut out a tag to decorate to compliment my newly decorated book.  It was criminal NOT to use all of this beautiful sunflower but believe me I intend on using this one time and time again.  I can loose hours painting and then layering pencil colours over the top, something I didn't explore on this mini project, but I guess I am saving this for one of those dark, autumn afternoons that I don't have to venture out.

I couldn't resist just using a couple of stamps inside the book too. I used a smokey grey ink, which still allowed the text to peep through, so reading those pages wouldn't be impossible when the time comes. 
What better way to brighten up the darker months ahead with these striking new stamps?  I have a feeling that a few more of Tracy's new floral stamps will be making an appearance  on some more of this books' pages.  Where will you stamp yours?

Thanks for joining me today, I hope you have a creative week.

NEW PaperArtsy Products: September 2019 {Eclectica³ Tracy Scott}

 Eclectica³ Collection {Tracy Scott}
September 2019 New Product Announcement

A note from Leandra:
You are in for a wonderful treat today! Stamps, stencils and paint. I'm sure you'll agree, Tracy's samples and ideas are stunning. As this post publishes, Tracy will be mid-air on her way to teach at several of our stockists in Australia with these beauties (Details here) I bet those students will be absolutely thrilled to be the first to have fun with all these beauties!

Hi everyone, Tracy here.

I'm super excited to share with you my newest release for PaperArtsy. 3 stamps and 3 coordinating stencils. 
As with my last release in June, I am finding that I am more and more inspired by vintage botanical images at the moment and when I realised that my interpretation and drawing skills were very much better than I imagined them to be I thought why not?

Most of you know that I am an avid art journaler and although I have designed these stamps with this in mind I am sure you will agree that they are super versatile and will be equally at home on a card, scrapbook layout or home décor project.

Today and Tomorrow you will see ideas with these stamps from myself and Clare Messenger, one of the Team PA regular Bloggers. You can also see plenty of activity on PaperArtsy's Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest. (links at the foot of this post) So no matter what your preferred social media platform, we will be sharing with you!

Let's check out these new beauties, some ideas from each set and a couple of projects.

  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 29 (ETS29)

I love the idea of mixing up a modern funky background with the botanical elegance of these stamps and find a really good way to achieve a harmony between the two is to leave the stamped images in black and white,  this ensures that they don't clash with the bright and beautiful colours and they bring a certain elegance to the projects don't you think?

Eclectica³ Tracy Scott Set 30 (ETS30)

I love the idea of being able to use my stamps in an alternative way to how they would originally be perceived and one of my favourite things to create are mandalas!... so why not combine the two?
The small flower and leaf on this set worked perfectly on this bright and beautiful painted mandala. Stamping the flower several times and trimming the edge to follow the lines of the painted circle gives a very strong and striking design element to this mandala and what about the funky leaf shape that was left over from trimming the flower?... well I turned that into a cool scallop design that I added to the green painted circle...nothing is wasted!

After the new release in June, I already knew that I wanted to add more large flower designs into the collection and what an absolute beauty this sunflower is.  I like to be able to stamp and layer my designs and this one is no exception.
Lots of possibilities her to cut and layer multiple times to create a real 3D element on your pages, cards or layouts.
Although I am a huge fan of leaving my flowers black and white this one was just calling out to be coloured and is a stunning contrast against my brand new paint colours in shades if purple and blue (you can see more about those further below).

Eclectica³ Tracy Scott Set 31 (ETS31)

Well I don't believe you can ever have enough flowers so for my last set for this release I have added a couple of mid sized flowers to the collection which are always a useful addition including one with leaves!!
Of course the leaves can be removed from the flower as you can see in my art journal page above!...the leaves have been stamped, coloured and cut out separately so I could add them to the page to add a trailing effect (I'm now thinking I need more leaves in my life,  mmm next time maybe!)
My second sample uses the flower with the leaves removed and its a perfect size and shape to be layered up onto my larger flower from the June release... I do love a new stamp release to be able to work together with my previous stamp sets. And to complete this piece I added white pen work to the whole thing to tie the sample together... perfect!.

New Stencils
Regular Size: 6.5" x 7" (16 x 18cm) Price: RRP £4.60 + VAT
PaperArtsy Stencil 154 (PS154)

PaperArtsy Stencil 155 (PS155)

PaperArtsy Stencil 156 (PS156)

Oh I do l love a new stencil and the possibilities that it gives. And for this release it was all about the swirls, big bold swirly patterns that are fabulous to add to any background in a variety of ways as I have done in the sample above.
I have stencilled in the traditional way using all of the my new paint colours as well as using the stencils as both a drawing template and cutting template to add some real depth and dimension to the project.

Project One: Botanical Beauties Art Journal Spread

In the project above I've decided to make a double art journal page spread which incorporates some of the new stamp releases shown above combined with the botanicals and insects from the June release... and I'm sure you will agree that they work fantastically well together.
I've tried to use the stamps to the fullest by not only using the full stamped image but by stamping and cutting centres out to create new smaller flowers giving such a variety of different interesting shapes and adding 3D elements to my page, again I've stamped, coloured and cut away the leaves from the flower on ETS31 and added them in various places on my page to add a cascading effect and even though they weren't designed to do this I think they work really well.
A mix of multi-coloured florals as well as single colour and black and white elements make this a striking page sure to bring a smile to your face!

Project Two: Rainbow Florals

So for my second project tonight of course I have chosen another art journal spread, this one is spread over six pages and required a lot of painting in some of my favourite colours and a ton of masking to stamp all of the various flowers so that they appeared to overlap each other, but was so worth it to get the finished effect. Once stamped I cut along all of the edges of the pages so that the layer and colours underneath would be visible revealing a multi colour rainbow collection of pages.
I loved adding all of the white pen work on top to add a cohesive look and as I'm not the best at stamping it's also fabulous for covering any images that I didn't stamp quite so well, its a win win!.

 Project three: Inspiring Quote ATC's

Words and quotes are most definitely something I use on my projects all the time but up until now not really something that I have included into my stamp sets.
I just knew that when both the June and September releases were planned that I really wanted to include some as they just seemed to fit so well with the designs.
I decided to create some ATC cards to show off the quotes, I made a master board by painting the stripes design and then cut them apart to 3.5 x 2.5 inches.  The quotes and words were then stamped directly onto the cards. I could see this technique and the quotes being used to create sweet sentiment cards, quick, easy, simple and effective, what more could you want?.

And what abut the new paints I hear you say...well I've added 4 to my collection; 2 rich decadent purples and of course who doesn't love bright blues so I just knew I had to include a couple of new shades for you. The samples below were made with the new colours and I'm sure that you will agree they are going to be a stunning addition to my existing colours and I cant wait to see what you do with them...

Thank you so much for popping in today, I do hope that you love the new releases as much as I do and would love to see what you do with them. You can find me on social media at the links below and please tag me in anything that you would like me to see... I love to see your creations... 

And don't forget to check back tomorrow where the lovely Clare will be showing you more fabulous ideas with these products.
