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.
