Capture Your Adventures!

Hi there!

Jane Tyrrell is here on the blog today with an amazing keepsake full of beautiful photos, and lots of stamping…


Today I’m sharing my completed holiday journal from our recent adventures in Portugal. This was a real labour of love but holiday journals are so worthwhile. There is nothing better than looking back through them and revisiting awesome memories.





The following page was for our day out in Lisbon. Each day we took some  Instax photos, as well as using my usual camera.

These photos measure approx 8.5 by 5.5cm. I use the colours in my photos to inspire each page.



I first made a background using stamps from Mesh-ellaneous. These are such cool stamps!


They work perfectly with Distress oxides


I had fun playing with a background pattern.



I just had to use the camera (I know it isn’t an Instax but it’s retro enough for me) which I stamped, embossed and fussy cut out



I stamped and fussy cut out some of the paper boats from the Destination Unknown set…



I then put on my creative hat and put together my page…




Here are a few close ups…



Don’t you just love the paper boats…I do ūüėä




Stamps Used:


Capture The Moment




Destination Unknown




Mesh-ellaneous




This project was a real labour of love but so worth doing… there are a lifetime of memories inside my journal.






I really hope that I might have inspired you to create your own holiday journal.
You will be able to¬†“capture the moment and make it last forever…”


Thanks as always for stopping by and for the kind comments you take the time to leave me. 

Bye for now,
Jane x




Wow a real labour of love for sure… such a great way to remember wonderful memories made.
If you would like to see more close ups of Jane’s holiday journal, head over to her blog!

Thank you Jane for sharing your very special project with us, it’s amazing!¬†‚ô°

Bullet Journal

Hi there! We hope you are having a great Sunday!

Veerle Moreels is here to inspire you on the blog today…


When I saw the Alphabetical set one of the first things I thought about was a bullet journal. ¬†I had been reading a lot about them and wanted to try one out but for some reason I didn’t. And now I saw this set… let’s say I was even more convinced in giving it a try. Now I was really excited to start but I have to be honest…it’s not as easy as I thought it would be. Now the stamping part is easy…




Biggest problem is deciding how I want to divide it and what trackers I want to add. That’s why my first page is all decorated but not yet fully filled in ^.^ Oh and of course I want to add some family pictures. I already know where I want those (where my butterfly logo pictures are ūüėČ ) now all I have to do is print them out.
Really looking forward in decorating it, no idea how the planning will go ^.^

 

Stamps Used:


Alphabetical




Somewhere in Time




Ink Splats




Great project Veerle! ‚ô° ¬†Good luck with all the planning…

You will find more fantastic projects over on Veerle’s blog.

Look For Rainbows

Hi there! Thanks for visiting our blog today.

Teresa Morgan is here with more awesome inspiration for this month’s challenge…



This week I have been playing with the new ‘Alphabetical’ set of stamps from Visible Image. I dug out one of my older sets ‚Äď Sparkle In The Rain – and came up with a fresh new look for it. My project fits our ‘Splash of Colour’ theme brilliantly too!!




I used various colours of Distress Inks to stamp the rain and puddles, before stamping the figure with black Archival Ink over the top.

I used the alphabet set to create my sentiment then cut the words out, edged with black Distress Ink, and glued them in place on my card front.





Thanks for stopping by ‚Äď why not join in the ‘Splash of Colour’ challenge with us over in the Facebook group ‚Äď you could win a ¬£40 gift voucher for the Visible Image shop!!!

Time Waits For No Man

Hello! We hope you are having a great weekend!

Corrie Herriman is here on the blog today with her latest Design Team project…


Hello everyone,

I have an art journal page to share today using the lovely new stamps by¬†Visible Image. I love the alphabet stamps, there are more than one of certain letters so that makes is easy to stamp words like ‘happy’ etc. I stamped them a little wonky but you can line them up really well.



I used a mop up page from my gelli print stack. I really like these; sometimes they are even nicer than the proper prints.

I added some background stamping using Archival ink and the pink clocks were heat embossed with pink embossing powder by WOW.




The letters are stamped on white paper, I then added the circles around them. There is a circle and a square in the set and the letters fit in there perfectly. I used a punch to cut them out.




I like my words to be wonky so I stamped them wonky on purpose. I added some white dots with a white pen.


That was it from me today ! You also still have time to play in our monthly challenge where the theme is ‘Dimension’. I have put my letters spelling ‘time’ on dimensional tape so they stand out more.



I used all three new stamp sets for this page:


Ahead of our Time




Somewhere in Time




Alphabetical




Fantastic page Corrie and love your caption! ‚ô°

You will find more of Corrie’s fantastic cards and projects over on her blog.



Our alphabet stamp set is brilliant… one for your wish list for sure! ūüėČ

The Perfect Moment

Hello! We hope you had a great weekend.. doesn’t Monday come around fast!

Incredibly busy week ahead here at Visible Image HQ.. a huge delivery of gorgeous stamps is arriving today, so we will be busy bees packaging and dispatching them to all the lovely customers who have been waiting patiently for their orders of curious cats, face stamps, unicorns, horses and anything else that had sold out!


We have lots of wonderful inspiration to share with you here on the blog this week, Jane Tyrrell is starting off the week with a beautiful journal page…



Another Monday is here and it’s time for my weekly Visible Image Design Team inspiration post.


For those of you who may be recent readers of my blog I have a real “Jane’s Journal” and a “Daisy’s Diary” (for my granddaughter) where I put all my special art journal mixed media “Moments” that I have made over the years. They preserve in time my precious family occasions. The week before our darling grandson Jack was born on 21 April I went down to stay as my daughter had some hospital appointments. As it was a lovely sunny day I asked Daisy if she would like to go out to nearby Hellier’s Garden for lunch. We went there earlier this year and saw all the snowdrops and daffodils. For this visit it was all about the blossoms… and how pretty they were.






She decided to build a birthday cake using a mole hill, sticks and dandelions ( as you do)





Jack was born 3 days later and I realised that this was our very last Daisy and Nanna outing before his birth. I felt it very important to remember this by making a Moment for her diary. I chose a very apt Visible Image stamp:


This is what I got up to…

First I added some texture through a vine stencil and stamped and embossed the bottom piece of my Visible Image¬†‘take the moment’¬†stamp.




I worked with these DecoArt mister inks, inspired by the colours of the blossom Daisy and I saw that day.



I sprayed my background,


and added some flowers through a stencil.


 


Next I added some script into the background using the amazing Scripted Streets set



I also stamped some flowers from the¬†‘Create it set’¬†using Distress oxides and fussy cut them out to layer.


I added cracks from the same set to a die cut tree to create bark texture.

 


I then coloured the tree with distress inks.



Once I had all my elements ¬†ready to put together I made my Moment…here it is…..




with some close ups…




Such a perfect sentiment



For a perfect moment I shared with my darling granddaughter.


 


Thanks so much for stopping by today.


Back soon.
Bye for now,
Jane x



Wow such a fabulous journal page Jane, perfect indeed for that gorgeous photo, very special memories to treasure.. thanks for sharing it with us ‚ô° Love your tree!

See The World In Bold Colour

Hello, thank you for visiting our blog today. Well yesterday was all a bit crazy so we didn’t get to share any gorgeous inspiration with you. But, we shall be making that up today with 3 fabulous projects.

First up is Corrie Herriman with a wonderful art journal page…

Hello everyone,



Today I have a project for Visible Image. I have used the ballerina again as I love her..



I made this page with a gelli print from my stash, which is getting low !!!

I stamped the word ‘colour’ first with Distress Oxed Ink and then embossed it with clear powder. I used a white gel pen to accentuate the letters. Next I stamped the ballerina so she is standing on the two “O’s”. I added some white dots around her skirt and hand too. Next I stamped the rest of the sentiment on white card stock and edged them with a green and blue Copic marker before adhering them. Lastly I added the cracks in the corners and the doodling.



I have used the following stamps:

Life Can Be Tough

Hello! We are back with more amazing NEW stamps inspiration here on the blog today!

Elina Str√∂mberg has got her hands on our Face it stamps…

Hi!
Have you seen all the gorgeous new stamps Visible Image has just released? If you have missed some, you can view the entire new collection here!

One of the inspiring new sets is Face It! that is perfect for cardmaking but also for art journaling. I played with the set and the face stencil last weekend, and made this painted journal page:


2017-02-09 Visible Image - face stamps - life can be tough - Elina Stromberg


There are several layers of acrylic paints and crayon colours on the page, and I really enjoyed the creative process. Painting a face has never been so easy! She has a serious face, and I thought the stamped quote was a perfect match to her expression:


Using the face stencil is super simple. The only thing that may require some attention is the positioning of the eyes, nose and mouth. The eye line divides the head in half (measured from the top of the head to the chin), and a common mistake is to place the eyes either too low or too high. My impression was that the stencil is indicating the face shape only until the hair line, so the eye line is above the center of the stencil. Once you have the eyes in place, the printed face image on the stamp set will help you in positioning the mouth/nose.

The below picture from WikiHow may be helpful:


If you’re not creating a complete face (like on a card) there’s usually no need to consider the positioning at all ūüôā



Here are pictures of the Visible Image products I used (click on the pictures for more info):


    

   


Wishing you a wonderful week!
Hugs,

Sparkle in the Rain

Hello! Thank you for coming to visit our blog.

Corrie Herriman has a fabulous project to share with you today…



Hello everyone,

Today I am sharing an art journal spread which I made for Visible Image.


2017-01-10-visible-image-stamps-sparkle-in-rain-corrie-herriman


I made this on two separate pages that I later glued in my journal. Sometimes it is better to work out of the book especially when you are heat embossing. I have had paint on previous pages bubble up when I put the heat gun on the page I was doing. So by using loose paper you don’t run this risk.


The colour of these pages was put on by brayering 4 colours of PaperArtsy Fresco Chalk paints. I used two shades of green; a light and a dark, a turquoise and a plum colour. ¬†Just start with the lightest and build up the colour. Make sure to have some white page left after every colour to fill with the next. You also could use white to reintroduce white space. After the paint dried, which takes no time at all I stamped the background with similar colours of ink. I added some holographic embossing powder over the plum ‘sparkles’, and sparkle they do !


I also stamped the word ‘sparkle’ and embossed it with white fine embossing powder by WOW.


I changed the sentiment by stamping bits of it, straight on the page and adding some doodling around the words.


The girl with the brolly was stamped straight on the page and on a separate piece of paper, cut out and adhered on top. I coloured some paper in the same colours as I used for stamping the background and used a hole puncher to get some polkadots for the brolly. I glued these on and added some white doodling on the umbrella. A few doodle lines around the pages finished it off.




I heat embossed the ‘sparkles’ with holographic embossing powder over the plum coloured ink. You can see the sparkle here…




and some more here, so pretty !




The sentiment.




The girl with her polka dotted brolly.




And the finished pages again.



I have used the following stamps:

Glimmer of Light Journal – Visible Image

Hello again! We are back with more gorgeous inspiration for you!

Over to Sue Davies who has a brilliant journal page to share…


Good morning, it’s my turn to share a Visible Image project with you, and I’ve been feeling very bold! ¬†I’ve made a journal page, straight into the book without a safety net.



visible-image-glimmr-of-light-moth-stamp-journal-page-sue-davies


This is the best photograph I can get as we’re slightly lacking in the old daylight department.





This is lots of Distress Ink blended in patches, with some stencilling in the same colours.  I liked it, but boy was it bright, so I toned it down a bit with some gesso through a stencil. The edging stamp is from the Music on World Off set.





Time for some fun now in building up the background. I’ve used Ranger Archival inks to stamp my quotes from¬†Imagine, Dream, Inspire, and there’s also circles from¬†Universal.





I’ve been wanting to use the¬†Glimmer of Light¬†stamp set for a while now, but I’ve been in Halloween (thankfully gone) or Christmas (OMG it’s getting close) mode for weeks, but today was playday!





Don’t you just love this moth! He’s just stamped onto the background and coloured in places with Stabilo pencils. I stamped the light bulb into the previously stamped circle, then stamped the circle again and embossed in white.





And this is the quote, stamped and embossed with black fine EP. I’ve just highlighted bits and bobs with stencils and Portfolio pastels. This was such fun to make once I’d got over the terrors of stamping in my shiny new journal.


For lots more daily inspiration please head over to our Facebook group.


If Pinterest is your thing, you can find us here.


Have a brilliant week, and thanks very much for looking x


Isn’t this fabulous! So much awesome detail to gaze at.. Thank you Sue¬†‚ô°


We’re keeping the inspiration coming today so pop back soon… and if you missed any of our recent posts you will find them HERE!

Visible Image Debut ‚Äď Corrie Herriman

Hi there!

We’re really excited to share the very first project by NEW Design Team member Corrie Herriman today!


Hello everyone,

This is my first project for the Visible Image Design Team. I am very happy to be here. Yay !!!!

I made an art journal page ; what else ???



Visible Image stamps - Me Time - Journal Page - Inky Flowers _ Corrie Herriman


I have used the fabulous ¬†Flower INKognito set¬†and the sentiment calledme time‘.
 
This page was started with a piece of pattern paper by Prima Marketing from the Epiphany Collection called “Devine Exposure”. I stamped the three flowers on it with a very light pink ink. Next I used a brayer and brayered some turquoise blue acrylic paints on the edges. I used two or three shades. I also used a little pink to give it some more interest. You can still see some of the pattern paper through the paints. I then took my Polychromos coloured pencils by Faber Castell and coloured over the flowers. I used three shades of pink and some yellow and orange.


I then drew in the stems and coloured them with a black and a white gel pen.


Lastly I stamped the sentiment on a piece of the same paper, coloured the edges with a pink coloured pencil, cut it into strips and adhered it to the page.


That was it !


You will find the lovely stamps of Visible Image HERE 
 
Thank you so much for stopping by today !

Visible Image Debut – Carol Fox

Hello! Thanks for coming to visit our blog today.

We’re excited to share the very first project by new Design Team member Carol Fox today!


Woo Hoo it’s my Debut post for¬†Visible Image¬†today. I wanted to used their iconic stamp of the Eye for my post, this seems to be their trademark stamp and I hope I have done it justice on the following card.


Visible Image stamps - inky eye stamp - Dream - Carol Fox



I used the Following Stamps:


My card is done journal style with a clean and simple feel to it.


I stamped my image and quote directly onto my card blank using black archival ink, I then masked off the eye area leaving the surrounding splatter unmasked.



I then used a dot Stencil with a random dot pattern and applied 3 shades of DecoArt Mulit surface paint using a piece of cut and dry to mix the colours as I went to give various shades from the 3 colours.



I then picked out 3 similar colours from my Caran d’Ache pencils to colour the center of the eye again layering the colours to achieve different shades.


I finished with my must doodle border of the moment.


This is a larger size card to which I usually make but I felt the eye needed plenty of white space to dominate.


I want to say again thank you to Mark and Helen for letting me join the team at Visible Image.


Happy Crafting
Carol xx


Fantastic¬†card thank you Carol… loving your doodle border!¬†Our awesome eye looks fabulous with¬†those colours¬†‚ô°



We will be back a little later with a preview of another awesome NEW stamp set from our February release!

Have a good Monday.

Hi There! Thanks for coming to visit our blog today ūüôā

Well it’s just 10 days now until our Wedding (exciting!!!) and we are busier than ever.. we’re hoping for a few days to get into ‘Bride and Groom mode’ before the big day so we are halting stamp making this Friday! If you ‘need’ some new stamps then please get your order in quickly or we will unfortunately be keeping you waiting for a few weeks while we are closed.

Here on the blog today we are catching up with the latest projects from our awesome Design Team.

Over to Karen Liddle…


I thought I’d have a change for my DT project this week and do a couple of journal pages. ¬†I’m still very new to this, but I do enjoy it. ¬†I got some new Visible Image stamps this week so was itching to try them out.


Visible Image stamps - Journal Page - Scribbled Circle stamps - Take The Moment and Make It Perfect - Dragonfly - Karen Liddle


I gave the pages a coat of Gesso to start, then mixed some Tea Dye reinker with some water in a spritzer and sprayed, letting the colour run down the pages.I stamped on the inside of the envelope the stamps came in with the script stamp and punched them out.  

I also used the envelope to stamp the sentiments onto, added some random stamping with Tea Dye and Evergreen Bough Distress Inks, and also a little bit of stenciling.


Stamps used are –
Bronte Script 


Karen 



Great pages from Karen, the script circles look¬†brilliant, loving the vintage colours. ¬†You’ll find more of Karen’s gorgeous work over on her blog.

We will be back shortly with something very cool and different from Kim J ūüôā

Art Journal Page – Visible Image stamps

Good Evening! Hope you had a great weekend and Monday has been gentle with you!

The rain is pouring here in South Wales today, but we are here to brighten up the day with some amazing inspiration from our wonderful team ūüôā

First up it’s Susanne Rose who’s created a fabulous Art Journal page…



I love the new stamps of the Visible Image June Release. They are super modern and perfect for my passion: mixed media and art journaling!


Here you can see one page in my art journal:



Visible Image stamps - Smile Sparkle Shine - Susanne Rose


I used the Marabu mixed media spray inks for the background layer. I really like them, ’cause they are waterproof and I can work on top with my Neocolor II pastels or other watersolubal colors. I used the script stamp from the¬†Revolution¬†set from Visible Image to create more interest on the background.



Smile Sparkle Shine! This is one of the new awesome sentiment stamps from Visible Image. I stamped it onto tissue paper with jet black Archival Ink and embossed it immediately with clear embossing powder. The black will be much more saturated with the embossing on top. The sentiment was adhered with gel medium.


 


The hearts are cut out of a gelli printed deli paper. I use it to wipe of my brayer during a gelli printing session. I lay the deli paper on top of a stenicl and wipe the brayer off. ¬†So I get nice and interesting texturse plus a clean brayer. Deli paper is perfect for collage. It’s thin but not as delicate as tissue paper. I adhere it with Gel Medium.



I also used some of the¬†Ink Splats¬†background stamps from Visible Image on top of the woman’s face.

Stamps from Visible Image:

Ink Splats
Smile Sparkle Shine



Isn’t this amazing! Awesome drawing by Susanne and such a cool and funky background… LOVE it! <3

You’ll find more of Susanne’s brilliant work over on her blog.

We’ll be back shortly with more fabulous Design Team inspiration ūüôā

Book Of Hope – Visible Image stamps

Good Evening ūüôā As promised we are back with more fabulous inspiration this evening.

Over to the very marvellous Kim Bacon…

Oh what a memorable weekend I have just had, a few big things achieved!¬†Yesterday was a momentous day for us as we launched our ‘new’ boat.¬†Beautiful little boat and I know she is going to give us some very happy days out.

 



Right, need to get on with the business in hand which is my inspirational project for my DT.


Last week saw the launch of a new set of stamps from Visible Image and I have used one of the Express Yourself stamps as the cover sentiment for one of my little books.



Visible Image stamps - If You Have Hope - Kim Bacon


This book has blank pages in so it could be used for little quotes but you could equally make a book to hold photos, addresses, or just as a shopping list.


I also used the small butterfly because I love this stamp!


Here are the links to the stamps I used.

Awesome Background Stamps – Visible Image

Hello There! We hope you are having a good week so far ūüôā

We had an amazing time at The Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show at Ally Pally at the weekend, we met lots of our fabulous customers and Facebook group members, and we met lots of new customers too! Some of them are already addicted after just a few days ūüėČ We had quite a few sell outs so we came home with a full order book! We did manage to grab a day off yesterday (did nothing much except sleep!) so today there’s a lot of catching up to do!!!

There’s loads of amazing NEW Design Team inspiration, so we shall start with Teresa’s post from Thursday last week. Over to Teresa…


Where does the week go, I can’t believe it is Thursday again already and my turn to share some more stamping inspiration for the Visible Image team!

This week I have two cards to show you using some of the fantastic background stamps that are available in the shop.

First up is is a cool ‚Äėgraffiti‚Äô style card:



Visible Image Stamps

 

I stamped the Brick Wall stamp twice with black Versafine ink then added the Ink Splats and drips (from the Drag and Drip set) using Versamark ink and WOW fluorescent embossing powders.

I stamped and embossed one of the Ink Splats onto another piece of card then stamped and embossed the sentiment in black over it.


Stamps Used:

Brick Wall

Ink Splats

Drag and Drip

Imperfection Is Beauty

 


My second card…



Visible Image Stamps


I love the new squiggly doodly background stamps in the shop!

I stamped one of the stamps in the Plasma set randomly with Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks. Once dry I stamped and embossed(in black) one of the stamps from the Orbital set to frame each circle.

The sentiment is stamped and embossed in black, then matted onto yellow and black card.


Stamps Used:

Plasma

Orbital

Just Making Memories

Imagine Dream Inspire – Visible Image stamps

Hello There! Hope you had a great weekend!


Thanks so much for coming to see us here on the Visible Image stamps blog today ūüôā As always on a Monday the very talented Kim Bacon is here to inspire you…


Hello! Well, I don’t know what it was like for you over the weekend but it was bloomin’ lovely here! Fab amounts of sunshine, nice and warm, and altogether very ‘summery’. Let’s hope that it keeps going right through till October!

There was also the eclipse which at first glance seemed to be spoiled by an unusually thick fog. However, this worked to my advantage as it allowed me to get some fab shots. Here is one of the 100+ shots I took! This one was taken about 9:35 so at the height of the eclipse. It was eerily quiet and everything was bathed in a yellow glow.


20 03 2015 Eclipse - Kim Bacon


Right, on to the matter in hand, my inspirational make for Visible Image. I have been reading a lot about this tissue technique just lately. Well, let me tell you I have been doing it for ages! I stumbled across it purely by accident when I placed a very wet and inky piece of kitchen roll onto a piece of card by mistake. Initially I was annoyed at the waste of the piece of card but quickly realised that it was actually a good use of the inky tissue!


Visible Image stamps - Mini Book - Kim Bacon



This little book is made form a piece of card which had a soggy wet inky tissue laid out on it, I intended to use the tissue for another project so I had opened it out to dry quicker. I was doubly pleased as the card it was lying on ended up with some beautiful staining.

All in all a very pleasing result I think. I am crazy about making these little books at the moment, they take a little while but make a change from my other current project, my ATC365 which is a quick 30 minute project once a day. These books give me something to get involved in.

 

As always, the following images link directly to the Visible Image online shop and underneath are all the links you need to see more of the fab stuff Visible Image and the Design Team do!

Wonderland Journal Pages – Visible Image stamps

Good Morning ūüôā It’s a gorgeous sunny day here in South Wales, still very cold though. Really looking forward to some warmer weather and lighter evenings.

Today we have a very special project for you from Teresa Morgan. We hope you will be inspired to get your hands on our brilliant Wonderland characters. They’re timeless…


Visible Image stamps - Alice in Wonderland Journal Pages - Teresa Morgan

I have used the new Wonderland characters from Visible Image for my journal pages (I think that the queen has been chopping off heads again!!)



Visible Image stamps - Queen of Hearts



Visible Image stamps - Cheshire Cat
I started by doing the text, one of the Cheshire Cat’s quotes, then used the Grunge Check background stamp to fill the top and bottom areas (masking off the text with some paper).



Visible Image stamps - Alice in Wonderland



Visible Image stamps - Tweedle Dum Tweedle Dee

I used the drip stamps from the Drag and Drip set with some red ink to fill in another area, and filled the final area with lots of doodled hearts.



Visible Image stamps - Mad Hatter



Visible Image stamps - White Rabbit

I stamped and coloured the characters from the Wonderland stamp sets using Promarkers, cutting some of  them down to head and shoulders to fit the page.



I love how this turned out and hope that you are inspired to create something with these fantastic Wonderland characters!

Stamps used:

Grunge Check Background

Drag and Drip

Alice In Wonderland

White Rabbit

Mad Hatter

Tweedle Dum / Tweedle Dee

Cheshire Cat

Imagine. Create. Visible Image stamps.

Hello again! Happy Saturday to you ūüôā ¬†Hope you have a great evening planned.

Over to Amber for today’s second dose of awesome Visible Image inspiration…


Today I wanted to share a page out of my watercolor art journal.  I started by watercoloring my background.  Next I used stencils to sponge and spritz some polkadots.  Then I went crazy with stamps! I used six different Visible Image stamps.  I especially love how the plaid background stamp looks on art journal pages.  And how awesome is that sentiment stamp!? Love it!
