Sketched Face

Hi there! We’re back with more gorgeous inspiration this evening.

Veerle Moreels has a stunning tag to share…


Lately this question/discussion pops up among my friends and on my social media: are we artist’s or just people with a hobby.

I see myself as someone with a hobby, not an artist at all. The simple reason for that is: I can’t draw. My parents gave that talent to my brother ^.^ Being able to start from scratch, drawing or painting every single line themselves, writing every word and bring a text that touches my soul… that’s what I call an artist. Educated or self taught doesn’t matter.


I would love to be able to draw. So thankfully there are stamps helping me out, and how happy I was when the ‘Face it’ set from Visible Image came together with the stencil. Maybe I would be able now to “make” a “drawing” of a face?  I had to give it a try…





And I was so happy with the outcome.  It really looks like a drawn face even though I cheated and started out with the stamps and the stencil. They made a perfect base for me and my plain grey pencils.

I will definitely will have another go at this. Anyone want to give it a try?

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:

It’s Fabulous Friday!

Hello again! Thank you so much for visiting us here on the blog today. Pauline Butcher is here to brighten the day with some really vivid projects…


Hi there you lovely lot,

It’s Fabulous Friday, and I’m off to the seaside for a well earned rest for two weeks!

These are some of the cards I demonstrated on Create & Craft TV for Visible Image a couple of weeks ago.


My first card features sentiments and the inky ballerina from Born to Perform and the fantastic large inky splat from Somewhere in Time.

 



     



The next card was made using stamps from the Live in the Moment set. The background was created with distress inks blended over the clear embossed sentiment, which were then spritzed with water. The ripple stamps were also stamped in distress inks, and the beautiful dragonfly was stamped onto acetate and coloured with inks and stickles before being adhered to the card.







This card features stamps from the Dare to Swim set. The background was created by dragging distress ink pads down the card. The beautiful jellyfish was embossed onto acetate, the sentiment and bubbles were also embossed. The weeds and fish were stamped in two colours to give the appearance of depth.






All the stamps on the next card can be found in the Imperfection is Beauty set. The background flowers were stamped using distress oxide ink. The sentiment and stem were stamped in black versafine, and the flowers were all stamped then fussy cut, and layered up using foam pads for dimension. 






The vibrant background on my final card was created with distress inks which were spritzed with water. The butterflies and words were embossed in black to make them really stand out against the colour.



 



Thanks for visiting, and see you after my holiday!
Hugs Pauline xxxx
