I found some bits of lace, and other stuff, glued them to the canvas, then got out my Ink sprays
and Dyna Acrylic paints, and played at being Picasso, lol !!!!
I used a Mirror image stamping technique, to add the Ballet dancers.
As you can see from the tutu’s, I used plenty of glitter and seed beads, to give them lots of dimension,
and I added gold Stickles to all the stamped stars.
The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of white card, and fussy cut.
Thanks for visiting, hugs, Pauline xxxx

Hi there! Thanks for visiting our blog today! Sorry for the lack of posts recently, we have just been inundated with orders for our Summer Release which is AMAZING! Thank you ♡ We are thrilled you are loving these new designs so much!
We have lots of amazing Design Team inspiration for you over the next few days! We’re kicking off with a brand new project from Teresa Morgan…
I am so excited to be sharing my first project with one of the new sets of Visible Image stamps – Glimmer of Light. This beautiful moth design comes with a cool light bulb and fantastic sentiment and is so versatile. I have created a mixed media canvas for you:
I used washes of DecoArt Media acrylics to created my background: Cobalt Teal Hue, Cobalt Turquoise Hue, Dioxazine Purple, Burnt Umber, Pthalo Green Blue. I flicked some Carbon Black Media Mister onto the damp wash then allowed to dry. Once dry I flicked a bit more of the black Media Mister (to create more defined spots) and did the same with White Linen Dylusions spray ink.
I wanted to add some texture, so used white DecoArt Media Crackle Paste and black DecoArt Modelling Paste with some stencils, and once again set aside to dry.
I used the script stamp and flourish from the Revolution set to add some background detail. I stamped them both with black Archival Ink, and then used the script stamp with Ranger Sticky embossing powder and turquoise foil. I stamped the moth and light bulb with Archival Ink and used Glossy Accents to highlight the glass bulb.
Finally I stamped the sentiment onto white card and cut it out, edging the pieces with black ink. I hope that you enjoyed today’s project – be sure to come back next week to see more of the new release stamps in use!!
Visible Image has newly introduced MDF Monoliths which are awesome for mixed media work and stamping.
And here, I’ve used one of the newest stamps as well.. Unicorn Magic
These MDF monoliths have smooth surface. I have used distress paints wild honey, seedless preserve, pine needles to color this side. For more texture and interest I’ve done stenciling with texture paste and paints. On another white paper I stamped Unicorn, cut it and adhered on the surface.
And here is the backside, I’ve used the sentiment from same stamp set.
Hi there! Thank you for coming to visit us here on the Visible Image blog.
We’re very excited to share Denisa’s Design Team debut project today…
Hello crafty friends, today is the Big Day :). It´s my first post about Visible Image stamps which are incredible. Unique designs, made with top quality photopolymer, versatile and being packed in super plastic bags..these are the reasons why I love them sooo much. Simply, the stamps out of this world.
Here is what I created. It´s a canvas full of fragment stamping which I frequently use on my projects.
Below you can see the stamps used on my project. Just click on the stamp´s name and you´re in the shop:).
Sorry we missed yesterday’s post but it was a crazy busy day! We didn’t manage to get everything finished as planned, so today will now be our last day in work before we wind down and get into ‘Wedding mode’ !!! Getting very excited now… just 6 days to go before the big day ♥ ♥ ♥
So here on the blog today we have triple inspiration for you from Pauline, Susanne and Doreen.
First up, here’s Pauline with her latest Visible Image stamps project…
It’s me, back again, spreading some Visible Image love, superb deeply etched photo-polymer uniquely designed Stamps, which I love to use, can you tell.. lol !!!
The very unique stamps I’ve used for this project are……
This week, just for a change, I’ve used a 5″ x 7″ canvas, which I primed with 2 coats of white Gesso. Whilst that was drying, I stamped my main images, the lips and the sentiment, onto some heat resistant acetate, using versamark, and heat embossed them with some pink sparkle embossing powder and fussy cut.
Right, back to the canvas, I added some grunge paste through a stencil, and dried with my heat tool.
I spritzed it all with water, and sprinkled Brusho paints onto it, spritzed with water again, and then let it all drip down. I also mixed some red Brusho with water, and let that drip down too.
Using some gold paint on the Ripped Fishnet and Edgy stamps, I stamped randomly over the canvas. I found an old jar of white ink in one of my drawers, which had gone very thick, but it was perfect for the white drips and circles !!! I edged the canvas with gilding flake, then glued the lips and sentiment into place, and lastly added Stickles for more sparkle.
Join us in the Facebook Visible Image Group, lots of inspiration and banter HERE.
Helen and Mark (the awesome couple behind the Visible Image Stamp Company), are getting married next Friday 7th August, I am sure you will join me in wishing them an extremely happy Wedding Day, and long, loving and prosperous years of wedded bliss.

Today as promised here is my ‘canvas’ to share. The substrate is cardboard from a recycled shipping box panel.
Lots of pictures, I really love texture and think I got a bit carried away with it on this one 🙂
Click to make each image a bit larger.
I coated both sides of the canvas with DecoArt White Gesso. On top of that I added some stenciled patterns using DecoArt Modelling Paste. I let the whole board dry overnight.
Once it was dry, I covered it with another layer of gesso, sort of a thick layer. I used a laser printed copy of one of my own photographs, the dandelions, and placed it face down into the gesso.
I pressed it down into the gesso by hand and did some more smoothing with a bone folder. I wanted to make sure I got the whole image pressed into the wet gesso. I let it dry overnight again.
Once dry I misted the surface with water then started rubbing off the paper.
Once the image was clear and slightly distressed, I covered the dandelions with a layer of Americana Decoupage Crystal Glitter to seal it. It adds a nice fine sparkle with one layer and helped the main image to stay clear for all the next layers of paint and ink.
The borders all around are built up with layers of DecoArt Crackle paste, Antiquing Cream and various DecoArt acrylics. The majority of the color comes from the English Red Oxide Antiquing Cream layered with alcohol inks.
I used the “Create Your Imagination” sentiment by Visible Image in the This is Me set. The diamonds are cut from the background stamp, Grunge Harlequin. Love the size of both these stamps!
Have a fabulous fun day!
Stay current with Visible Image, here are the links to where you must be 🙂
Hi There 🙂 Thanks for visiting our blog today! We are catching up with all the latest Design Team inspiration today.
Here’s Doreen OBrien with her latest project…
Well this is going to be my last live blog Post for a few weeks. We are moving house and I am having to pack away my craft room. I will still have scheduled posts to share though.
I have a Mixed Media canvas to share today, I first painted my canvas with acrylic paints, then using Archival black ink stamped some background stamps “Grunge Harlequin” and “Bronte Script”.My heart was cut out of some card, I painted this and grunged it up a bit with a black pen. I then stuck this to the canvas with some PVA glue .
I stamped my words from the “This is Me Set” onto some card, cut them out and stuck them down. The canvas was then edged with some red Gelato and once it was all dry I sanded my canvas all over. xxx
Wow isn’t this awesome! Loving those colours Doreen. Such a gorgeous canvas <3
You’ll find more of Doreen’s wonderful work over on her blog.
Hope you will swing by a little later to see more fabulous work from the team 🙂

One of our stunning NEW stamps is rather special… Beautiful, positive words for anyone going through a tough time in their life. Kim Robertson has created a stunning canvas which would make such a wonderful gift.
Here’s Kim with more details…
Good Afternoon all
Well today I have an extra post for the fabulous Visible Image this week as they have a huge new launch day with new characters, and lots of new sentiments and really thought provoking phrases that are just not covered by any other team. I just love the individualism and combination of a fabulous artist/creator and an ingenious Poet and wordsmith /media specialist in fact Helen and Mark are the opitomy of Jack and Jill of all trades, and I am sure they won’t mind me sharing that with you all.
I created a Mixed media canvas which I would like to share with you all and I hope you love it as much as I do.
I realise it is quite hard to pick up on the shabby chic sort of colourway but it is actually pale pinks chalky whites brown and gold in all the recesses I used the stamping on 1 ply of tissue to get the image transferred to the canvas method for this one coating it in PVA glue to hold it on to the surface and over the entire thing to protect it. It will wrinkle and bubble but that’s ok just leave it be to dry as it flattens itself out as it does.
I prepped my canvas then by adding a thick layer very roughly of texture Crackle paste around the sentiment in a frame shape, I heat dried it til it cracked then I added some hessian in places and also some cheese cloth and I dried that layer. I then took a stencil and ran some Grunge paste through the shapes which were splots dots , stripe , zigzag in a grungy pattern in random areas. dried again then began adding all the goodies.
After I had done that I started adding all my items to the canvas and here is a picture of all the items attached before all the colouring started.
You can see all the items in their original colours and what they all are here with mixes of gold and silver , green and turquoise flowers and how I built up the winged dragonfly in the bottom right corner.
I covered the whole thing except of course the main show in the centre which I shielded with card cut to size. To start I covered everything in Gesso in fact I did a few coats not only for opaque coverage but also for texture as some place I stippled the medium on rather than painting it will smooth brushstrokes.
After the gesso I went in with a vintage chalk acyclic paint in a pinky/lilac cool tone and covered everything then added several spritzes of colours in browns/golds/mauve’s to the mix and dried in between each coat with a heat gun.
Here is that same corner finished with all its glitter.
I did not do a complete tutorial of every step as a piece like this is done in several steps and can be rushed but I am a perfectionist it seems lol, but if you would like one please just let me know in the comments. I strongly advise a hot glue gun though for a piece like this as it will take longer having to wait for every part to set.
Here is the top right corner , I had some chipboard frames that were oval so I cut a piece of the frame and added that to the canvas then I found a little plastic cameo button , very ugly and cheapy looking lol so I made her beautiful with an old stone like texture.
I really just keep adding til I have a balance to the canvas and so it looks complete without being over the top. Some may say it is if you like the minimal look but I do enjoy this style and you get to use up small left overs and such like.
Here is the finished piece again and I truly hope you will have a go or we can do a series on how too or some thing like it..
I absolutely love it. Anyway I hope you will go look at all the hard work put in by all for this launch and the amazing goodies made by a fab team HERE!
Love to all as always from my house to yours.
