Welcoming Eileen Godwin!

Hello! As you may have guessed from the title of this blog post, we have some very exciting news to share!

The incredibly talented Eileen Godwin has joined our Design Team!!!


Lots of you may already follow Eileen’s blog… she’s such an inspiration!



Hello. I’m Eileen Godwin and have been happily crafting since 2004. After trying all sorts of crafty products I’ve found that Stamps and Inks are ‘my thing’ ! I retired at sixty, in 2008 , after a full time career as a Pharmacy Manager in Retail Pharmacy . It was a stressful job but now I can craft all day ! I live in a small village near Rochester, Kent, with my husband Ken and we share our home with two small doggies whom we adore and four ferrets! When we go on holiday they ALL come with us ‘cos ”We are family!” I have a Blog and run Craft Workshops in my local Village Hall.



It was raining hard here in North Kent yesterday, so I was forced to remain at my Craft Desk all day!

As I’ve just joined the Design Team here at Visible Image it was a super excuse to play!



 

 


The beautiful Butterfly from the ‘Live life Now’ set, and one of the stamps from the ‘Visometry’ set as a background feature.

 

 

 

It’s been a super day!

A few lines with a black ink pen and a ruler plus some sequins and white dots.
Job done!

 

 

Back soon.

Brilliantly British

Hello there! Thank you for visiting our blog today! It’s been a Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK so we have enjoyed a day off, and had a BBQ in the sunshine with the family!

It’s not like the British weather to be sunny on a Bank Holiday… so it was awesome! Talking of British, Jane Tyrrell is here with the very first sample showcasing our brilliant NEW Grungy Union Jack stencil! Over to Jane…

Good Evening!


Today I have a bit of a red white and blue theme going on…something patriotic!


Visible Image have brought out a brand new range of stencils and the first I have had the pleasure to play with is none other than the brilliant Grungy Union Jack which can be pre-ordered now!




Isn’t it gorgeous… I love those grungy drips. These have been designed by Mark and made for Visible Image by Tando Creative. They are fab quality and thickness, a generous 6X6″ size and are available to pre order here There are 10 designs, all are awesome, do check them out!


As soon as I saw this stencil I knew just which stamp would go perfectly with it…




yes the bowler hatted man from the Ahead of our Time stamp set.

I kept to the red. white and blue of the flag and inked it up using Distress inks.

I then stamped and embossed the man and added the flying birds… I had been up to London the day before and it got me thinking of Mary Poppins and “feed the birds”… yes I know it’s quite scary inside my head sometimes! I also used the very apt creativity sentiment from the Express Yourself set



Here is my first Design Team card using this awesome new stencil…


Meet Mr Union Jack 😉





and here he is in close up




I am loving playing with these new stencils and have been making more samples for the next Create and Craft TV show on 8/9th September. I will also be sharing another of my stencil makes next week.


Bye for now,
Jane x

Making A Splash!

Hello there… hope you are well. Wow it’s been a hot one today! And it’s been one of those brain frazzling kind of days here too! Apologies for not blogging for the last few days, we will make up for it though as we have lots of fabulous inspiration to share with you!

Here’s Jane Tyrrell making a splash….


I am here with my weekly Visible Image inspiration. We have a brand new challenge running for July over on Facebook and the theme is  “a splash of colour”. As I have recently returned from my holiday in Portugal I took the theme literally and wanted to make a card with a seaside splash of colour.

There is nothing like the sea and a clear summer sky abroad. I wanted to try to recreate the feel of a hot summer day by the sea. I chose a couple of summer blue distress inks and added them to my craft sheet. I sprayed a spritz of water and then dipped my card into the pools of inky blue dye until I had a created a sea splash/wave pattern I was happy with.




I knew just the image to use… the sea jumping Katie stamp from the Tomorrow Doesn’t Exist set



I also wanted to add summer into the mix so I got out my Alphabetical set 


I selected the stamps to spell summer… I couldn’t resist using the # again too! I stamped and embossed my images and letters.


Here are a couple of close ups. The light reflects off the embossing and the inks give a feeling of the splash of colour in the sea.

 



I hope you enjoy a wonderful summer and that you get the chance to smell the sea and feel the warmth of the sunshine on your skin…. such a fabulous feeling.


We hope to see lots of you joining in with this month’s “a splash of colour” challenge over in the Visible Image Facebook group.

The sun has returned and it looks like we have a week of gorgeous blue skies to look forward to 😎.  I have lots of crafting to catch up with in my garden studio!

Back soon!
Bye for now,
Jane x
