 Eclectica³ Collection {Nicci Battilana}
  November 2021 New Product Announcement

A note from Leandra:
Nicci has created for you a spooky Christmas vibe for those of you with non-traditional taste at this time of year! Her quirky patterns and rock-chick angel vibe oozes into decorations, a fabulous tree and don't forget Mr Magnificent himself, the nutcracker!! If you like an alternative Christmas, then these are certainly for you! Look closely and you will see skulls, cobwebs, and even a Christmas cocktail. A Creepy Christmas !! Bring it on!!
Nicci will share her new stamps and stencils live in PaperArtsy People shortly after this post publishes. If you miss her live, you can catch the replay!

Remember, these stamps are available EXCLUSIVELY from our approved stockists for the next few months. It makes sense to buy local within your country, see the list and links at the bottom of this blog post. 
Hi everyone, Nicci Battilana  (@niccidotca) here,

I'm super excited to share with you my newest release for PaperArtsy. 3 stamps and coordinating stencils.

This release was created very close to the time that I was creating my very first release and therefore they play together very well. If you are a Tim Burton fan or someone that likes to stray away from the everyday, this may just be the set that you have always dreamt of having in your collection!

With this release I wanted to make it very versatile, so those that love Christmas, can create warm more traditional pieces as well as push the boundaries a little ðŸ˜‰ðŸ˜‰. They play well with other designers sets as well. 

 Imagine if you will....
 a loving snowman greets you 
at the entrance to a paper crafted tree lot 
featuring one or more of 'all' the tree stamps you own!
Stars and snowflakes fill the night sky.
Follow the pathway made of presents & gingerbread cookies... 
and don't forget to stop by the MARTINI BAR set up on the side before you leave!

Take a moment to close your eyes to picture this in your mind. 
Feel the gentle snowflakes land on your cheeks, smell the warm mixture of pine and gingerbread, hear the crunch of the snow beneath your feet. Deep breath my friends.

Now, we are ready to dive into my latest release. 
Thank you for indulging me and letting your mind and senses prepare you.

  New Stamps
Price: RRP €21.92 +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 Nicci Battilana Set 04 (ENB04)

I had fun with this 'FROSTY' page, which was inspired from a cartoon of my youth where a magical hat blows through the winter wind.
This stamp set pairs well with stencil PS289 for filling the sky with many unique snowflakes.
The text that I journaled on this page are:
(1) Finding beauty in every tiny thing that crosses our paths.
(2) As we look back on our lives & think of the fabulous SOULS that we have been lucky enough to spend some time with... I think back to when I would catch snowflakes on my Winter mitts & look closely at each little SNOWFLAKE before it melted. Each one unique & beautiful.

This set makes me think of all the little magical bits of Winter. The warm scarves, the beauty of snow covered trees, playing with loved ones and then heading back inside for a warm drink.
The Holly stamp at the top left of the set is great for creating frames and borders for your creations. Speaking of the holly, the 'three little skulls' stamp was created to be the exact size to cover the holly berries, if you desire. They are also a great accent for the ribbon on our top hat & more!

As you can see, I added a few extra eyelashes on our snow person. I have left the stamp features toned down for you, in hopes that you will experiment and come up with a variety of snow friends.

The reason that I only created a head for our snow person, is that you can choose how 'melted' or not you want their body to be. PLUS, you can also use this head on other stamps that you own that already have Time to play some mix and match!

Eclectica³ Nicci Battilana Set 05 (ENB05)

There are so many options for Christmas tree stamps out there for all of you. However, I really wanted to create a 'Nicci' tree, so I tried to think of one that would be fun and could play well with the others in PaperArtsy's and your own collections. I think I succeeded and cannot wait to see what you create with it. 
This set includes some fabulous other elements like our Sweet but Twisted Angel Girl, creepy candy-canes and goth gifts! 😜

For this sample I decided to create a page where I stamped the images with different shades of ink to show versatility. Where I used a lighter ink colour, I was able to change up some of the visual elements with ease and let my creative juices fly.

I also chose to change the skulls on 3 of the trees to round ball ornaments, add extra filigree ribbons and a variety of jewel adornments.

Eclectica³ Nicci Battilana Set 06 (ENB06)

On this sample I wanted to show you how you can go a little darker with your creation to make the bright areas POP! You will also notice that I showcase the holly berry corner stamp from ENB04 in this creation too. 

Texture for the holidays, yes please! I had so much fun using these stamps along with torn pieces of paper crackle glaze, fresco finish paints and watercolours. The stamped nutcracker image is much crisper in this creation, as I double stamped it using a stamping platform; first before I painted it in and again after I was done painting. In the background you will also notice that I used stencil PS289 with WOW!'s embossing powder 'Deck the Halls' (WS278R).

You may think that the martini glass is a bit big compared to our nutcracker friend, but when you think of it... what is better than a really big gin martini? lol
Honestly, I wanted the martini to be at a nice size for creating cards and or PARTY INVITATIONS. I plan to use this myself when we can next have a few friends over. YEAH!

New Stencils
Large Size: 6.25" x 9.5" (16 x 24cm) Price: RRP €6.28 +VAT
PaperArtsy Stencil 289 (PS289)

This stencil pairs well with all three of my new stamp sets! It is just the perfect Winter stencil in my books. Most of the samples that I have shared with you today feature either the holly or the snowflakes. As for the DEER silhouette stencils and masks - I am planning on creating tags for gift giving this year, as well as some tree ornaments.

For this sample I have done two layers of the stenciled snowflakes and one layer using the snowflakes stamps from ENB04.

PaperArtsy Stencil 290 (PS290)

This stencil is a fabulous base. You can angle it to be cross hatches, or plus signs, or X's (in which you can add some O's), ... right now in my minds they make me think of sheet metal. 
For this creation I used them to depict the inside of an oven and made it look a bit industrial but artsy. I cannot wait until Valentine's Day to create a background using this stencil with luscious pinks and reds!

Here I used the nutcracker and ornaments stamps from ENB06 on craft paper to showcase decorated gingerbread cookies on a cookie sheet. In the live video today, you will see how I created this 4 page interactive journal spread and incorporated lights!

PaperArtsy Stencil 291 (PS291)

This sample is a typical type of art journal page that I am known for creating. In it I have used two of the stencil elements from PS291, our Goth Girl Angel stamp from ENB05, plus the holy & the silhouette of our deer stencil from PS289. As part of her eye makeup, I have also incorporated stencil PS290.

I hope that you are as excited about these new products as I am and look forward to seeing what you create!
Below you will find a link to a quick little tutorial that I created for all of you.
