NEW PaperArtsy Products: Nicci Battilana (August 2023)

A note from Leandra:
This release is a continuation of Nicci's Alice and Friends release, with some more characters here to explore. Who doesn't love a bit of Tweedledum and Tweedledee! And the Mad Hatter with his millinery 
expertise will have you in stitches! There is also the Halloween girl of the moment, with her gothic-punk vibe and plenty of attitude
Nicci will be along to share with you LIVE her new products and ideas over in our Facebook Group, 'PaperArtsy People' just after this post publishes. The replay will be pinned as a featured post and to Nicci's guide over in PaperArtsy People.
These stamps are available EXCLUSIVELY from our approved stockists. Check the list at the foot of this post to find a retailer online or geographically near you, it makes sense to order within your country where possible. Our retailers endeavour to join the designer's live to share their direct shopping links - this makes it super easy for you to find a store with product in stock immediately.
Hi everyone, Nicci (aka NicciDotCA) here

I am once again beyond excited to share my current release with all of you! 
We are continuing our adventure into Wonderland and adding a dash of Goth-Girl for Halloween, which is almost on our horizon. 

Price: RRP €23.00 +VAT    Size:5" x 6" (13 x16.5cm)
All stamps are individually trimmed onto cling foam with a laminated storage/index sheet.
Eclectica³ Nicci Battilana Set 19 (ENB19)

She's going to become a fast favorite, those expressive hands add so much character with a tilt of the head, and flick of the wrist, she can be sassy or quizzical, or a dancing queen.

 Queen of Expression

She's got all the moves ...

In this set you will notice there are a few options with hands, arms, and it is pretty fun and easy to bring her to life by using mini brads or french knots with waxed thread to bring her to life.
You could also edit the shape of her mouth too, although I'm not sure she is much used to smiling! She's giving moody teenager vibes! We have all experienced those....lol.

What music do you think is her favorite?

The cool kid at the party!

Up to no good ....

She's definitely up to something ... wandering the neighbourhood in the shadow of the night with attitude ...

The eerie moonlight catches on the bats who are following her every move...
What is going on here ... fish food ??? ..... perhaps not !

You can see she is cooking up a plan! Or maybe she is waiting on someone to arrive...

Eclectica³ Nicci Battilana Set 20 (ENB20)

The Mad Hatter milliner, with his iconic price tagged hat has plenty of pins and needles close to hand (or is that hat!). Stitches, threads, buttons and scissors are his trade tools of course!

 Mr. Hatter

With his bushy eyebrows and flamboyant style, our Mad Hatter is certainly a bit of a head-turner! Just check out those hat pins!

The frame stamp makes a wonderful border to the niche behind inside which our character sits.

The expression of an older gentleman filled with whimsy warms my heart, as I hope it does yours. His warm face tells the story of someone that has had many adventures and they would love to sit down and share them with you over a cup of tea.

The Joyful Elements of a Sewing Room

Thimbles, bobbins, spools and buttons... oh my! With this stamp set I wanted to bring in many fun elements for those of us that also like to sew or even cross stitch. With the Royal Linen Thread stamp you can create a fabulous collection of your threads to bring with you on art adventures!

The doily collar frame is easy to expand and make larger by adding in a few daisy buttons, spools of thread and more!
Who does not LOVE a 'HANDMADE' label or tag? This special one showcases our fussy cutting scissors, teeny tiny bats , elegant daisy flowers and a dot of a skull or two!

Eclectica³ Nicci Battilana Set 21 (ENB21)

As part of the 'Alice and friends' series, this stamp set with the tweedles was a clear favorite to add to my line ...

 The Tweedles

Everyone loves a bit of Tweedledum and Dee, in this journal spread you can see they are up to something ... 

Did you spot Dee's slippers nestled in among the flowers ??
Dum has a surprised expression. If you wipe the ink away from his 'mouth' before stamping, you can easily edit this expression to something else, practise with pencil until you create an expression that suits your spread.

One of the 'butter' flies is putting in an appearance ...

The flower heads (sounds like a girl band) are here to brighten up your day, lots of colouring and layering options with these beauties!

But who is missing ????

Ahh, yes, the Cheshire cat! Look at that grin!

Large Size: 6.25" x 9.5" (16 x 24cm) Price: RRP €6.58 +VAT
PaperArtsy Stencil 404 (PS404)

It's a little bit spooky - Halloween will be here before we know it, so here are wax (or paint) drips, random marks, plus a typical 'Nicci' swirl. 

Drip Drop

These stencil drips are a wonderful drippy element to frame a page

ohhhh a wax seal! Always adds authenticity to any spooky invitation.

The criss-cross marks add a cool texture on the lower section of this page

PaperArtsy Stencil 405 (PS405)

The Mad Hatter's job is to make hats, so this stencil is like a stitch sampler. You can make frames, borders or backgrounds using this design.

This is all part of a single journal background, with the stitches oriented various directions, stencils are often a nice starting point for any journal page

The designs could be layered with a contrasting colour on top, red or orange, or the stencil used as a template with a fine tip pen to trace the designs for more definition.

The Hatters Shop & Store Window decorations.

Who says that a store front is best decorated with wood slats or bricks? Bring on the love with our cute little stitching elements. Hearts, daisies, spirals, cross bones and more!

Sometimes a subtle little mark here and there is more powerful than a filled page.

In this sample I doodled through the inside of the daisy border stitch followed by filling them in with a dash from my white paint pen.

PaperArtsy Stencil 406 (PS406)

A script stencil is the perfect background for any journal page, with dark or light color paint, texture paste, there are lots of options. A design like this always adds interest to page layers. 

 Word Frame

Tone on tone gives a subtle background effect made with this script stencil.

Bats are added with ink, and the focal image sits over the background


This stencil also works as another layer of many in a journal page background, you could orient it vertically for more of a pattern and a less 'legible' effect.

With these new sets and many of my previous ones, you can now tell the story of Alice in Wonderland in your journals or event create a haunting 3d sculpture to decorate with for Halloween! 

I hope that I have inspired you to create and cannot wait to see your finished projects!  đŸ€© Please feel free to share them in the PaperArtsy People facebook group as well as in my facebook group, Nicci's un-tethered Artsy Unicorns!

Keep smiling & creating,
