What’s Your Destination?

Hi there! Thanks for visiting!!

Josefine Fouarge is here to inspire you this evening with an awesome art journal page…




Woot, woot, I’m up for Visible Image and created an art journal page using the Destination Unknown stamp set. This is definitely one of my favorites, mainly because I really like the font of the sentiments. But, in just a few days, Visible Image is releasing some new stamps and they are going to be amazing – so stay tuned for that.

Till then, here is my art journal page. I started by painting a pink and purple all over the page and blended it in with white acrylic paint. I went back and forth a couple of times, till I had the effect that I wanted.


Destination Unknown A Visible Image Art Journal Page


As a first layer for the background I added some light grey dots through the Cosmic Skies stencil. I then added a few more dots in white with the other end of my brush.

Now the “decorating” began. I stamped a few of the circles from the Universal set all over the page and added a few arrows to the left and right. Then I stamped the bigger paper ship and added a few waves underneath using a black watercolor pen. A smaller ship was needed for the background. I added a few more hand drawn bubbles and colored them all in with a grey and white Gelato. At the end I added a few scribbly lines (literally just gibberish 😉 ) and was done with my page.

I enjoy the idea of heading out and not knowing where to go. Most of the time I feel similar with my art. I start a page and don’t know where it will end. That’s probably why this particular stamp set speaks to me on so many levels 😀


I hope your year is going to be amazing, knowing the journey or not.

Time Tunnel Journey

Good Evening! Another busy day here at Visible Image, so much to finish up before we close for Christmas on December 21st for a much needed nice long break.

Today’s awesome Design Team inspiration comes from Aga Baraniak..




My next inspiration for Visible Image has resulted in a gold delicate background.


I used a great stencil Time Tunnel





I hope that I showed you by this inspiration how you can combine and use the possibilities of products.
 











I used:


   



Colour Outside The Lines

Hi there! We have fabulous inspiration from Elisa Ablett here on the blog today…



Hi everyone,


Elisa here again with my latest project for the Visible Image design team, a colourful and vibrant Art Journal spread featuring a background created with a Gel Press monoprinting plate and acrylic paint.


I used the fabulous Fibres stencil with the Gel Press plate to create a textured multi-coloured look. I placed it over my gelli plate and sponged a baby wipe over it to take some of the colour off and it produced this gorgeous patterns in my background.


I then stamped the Face It stamp on the right hand side of my page and added some white highlights using a white paint pen.




Add your title by stamping your Outside the Lines stamp onto scrap paper ( I used a practise piece from my gelli plate adventures) to go with your page.


Cut out your title and mount onto your collaged pieces of paper on the left hand side.




Add some highlights to make your stamps stand out from your background!





Here are the products I used from the Visible Image Store –












That’s it from me today, I hope you have enjoyed seeing how you can incorporate mixed media techniques such as monoprinting with your stamps!! make your stamp stash go further !


Hugs
Elisa xx

I See Bold Colour

Good Evening! We have a bold and fabulous journal post by Lynn Good here on the blog today…




Hi everybody, today I have an art journal page to share with you…



I began by putting down some bold colours – I find this often gives me clarity about what I want to do



I have used Dylusion paints – Lemon Zest, Postbox Red, and Tangerine Dream.


I have used the ‘Time Tunnel’ stencil and Distress Ink Chipped Sapphire to create the focal points



I used Dina Wakeley Heavy Body White paint and a brayer randomly around the pages.  With the left over white paint I applied this to the ‘Strobes’ Stencil and using a roll of paper towel, pressed it onto the page.



On a separate piece of paper I have stamped the eye from the ‘Where Dreams Take You’ stamp set and cut it out, adhering it to the art journal page using matte gel medium.  I have coloured the eye with a watercolour blue.


I have then randomly stamped around the layout using stamps that I have listed below in the products list.  I have used a white paint pen and the Dylusions paints to highlight areas.  For the final touch I have applied Whipped Spackle paste through a stencil randomly on the layout to bring it all together.


Here are some close ups:










Products Used:










 






Thanks for stopping by and I hope that I have given you some inspiration to get out the bold colours and create.

Til next time – Happy Crafting!
Lynn



Fantastic pages Lynn, the Time Tunnel stencil looks great behind the eye!
Thank you ♡

Hi All,
Today I have my first inspiration for Visible Image. I made my journal with messy stamps.
You can use white background to present numerous possibilities the stamps give us. For me it’s perfect background.

Sun Queen

Hello! We are back as promised with more fabulous inspiration this afternoon, here on the Visible Image blog!

If you love the sun, and burnt orange tones, then you are in for a real treat from Jane Tyrrell…


It’s my weekly dose of Visible Image stamps inspiration today. The new stencils are back in stock here on the website  and I have been having fun with them.


A few weeks ago I shared my Blue Snow Queen card.. if you missed her check out my post here.



I adore the Face it stamp set and, inspired by the glorious sun that peeped out during my autumnal walk, I made something with the eyes open stamps from the set.




I also decided to go from a cool to a warm colour palette and had the idea to create a Sun Queen as an art journal page.


I worked with 3 of the fab new stencils too:







and





I often use the mask from the Face shape stencil & mask set but this time I decided to draw round it and make a separate cut out face which I could decorate first and then stick to my card to complete. I used masking fluid on her eyes and lips to protect them from the inks.












I used some of my Italian cotton cold pressed artist card and made an inky background using some warm autumnal distress inks




Next I added some sun bursts using the strobes stencil, and then inked the inner parts with stamps from the
Rays of Light set



which work perfectly with this stencil



I then added texture paste through my time tunnel stencil using the first brown swirls as my guide.


Finally I stamped the perfect sentiment, one of the new quotes Your Vivid Colours




So here is my Sun Queen…




With some close ups








Thanks so much for stopping by today. Enjoy the sunshine if you get some, smile at the”Sun Queen” ? if you see her, and delight in the gorgeous colours of autumn.


Back soon.


Bye for now,
Jane x



Wow! Such an incredible journal page! Thank you Jane ♡  So much to discover with all the stencilling and texture. LOVE those Autumnal tones!

There’s Always a Glimmer of Light

Hi there! We are back with more awesome inspiration this evening.

Elina Stromberg has a fantastic journal page to share with you…



Hi and happy Thursday!

Today I wanted to share with you my latest mixed media art journal page with black, white, and a hint of gold:




I got the idea for this page when flipping the pages of my Moleskine art journal. I came across a page I had painted with black gesso, and thought that a dark, solid black background would match perfectly the strong quote stamp text by Visible Image.


After adding a second layer of black gesso on the page, I dabbed some white gesso on the page, creating the background for my glimmering light bulb:



Once the paing was dry I stamped and heat-embossed the light ray pattern and the sentiment text on the page. The light lightbulb is stamped on white paper, cut out, and glued on the page.


To add even more glimmer, I sprinkled some gold colour heavy embossing powder flakes on the page. I did not use any embossing ink, so for keeping the flakes on the paper during heating, I heated the page from underneath. Worked out well!




For more information on the Visible Image stamps I used, please click on the pictures below:





 



Wishing you a wonderful week!

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 ♡ 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 Strömberg 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 🙂



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

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:

Rain is confetti from the sky – Visible Image

Thanks for coming to visit us here on the Visible Image blog today!

Elina Strömberg is here with a fabulous journal page…


The snowy white scenery is starting to change again; temperature is rising and snowfall is shifting to wet rain. Instead of complaining about the changing weather I decided to take a positive perspective and created a happy art journal page:


visible-image-stamps-girl-with-umbrella-stamp-elina-stromberg


First I painted the background with blue acrylic paints, then ‘white-washed’ the entire page with applying a thin layer of white paint with a baby wipe. I continued with stamping vertical lines on the background with white paint, using the rain background stamp from Visible Image ‘Sparkle In The Rain’ set. The same stamp (together with the puddles stamp from the same set) was used also for finishing the page; I stamped over the acrylic paint using grey StazOn ink.

The lovely girl image was stamped twice on blue cardstock and heat embossed using black and red embossing powders.



Even though the page is quite flat there are many layers of paint and stamping. The textures on the background are texture paste applied through a stencil. For both blending the white texture paste into the background but also for highlighting the fun textures I dry-brushed the background with a hint of blue acrylic paint.

The lovely quote I picked up from Pinterest, wrote on white cardstock, cut out, and glued on the page. Done!




I came across another quote by Louise Hay: “There’s no such thing as good weather, or bad weather. There’s just weather and your attitude towards it.” I think the girl on my art journal page could not agree more!

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 ♡


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!

Sunset on Butterfly Valley – Visible Image

Hello! We’re catching up with all the latest Design Team inspiration here on the blog.

Jane Tyrrell has a wonderful journal page to share with you, inspired by her recent holiday…


I decided to make a Moment for my art journal to remember our 2016 Rhodes holiday.  I wanted to celebrate the sunshine, heat and our trip to the Butterfly Valley. To do this I used my butterfly stamp from the brilliant Own Kind of Beautiful Visible Image set. I also used  the words from the Live in the Moment dragonfly set.

First I embossed my Visible Image butterflies, and then coloured them with distress markers in the same colours as those from the Butterfly Valley.



I wanted to represent the autumnal sun so I added gold embossing paste through my Tim Holtz sun stencil.



I chose some warm sunny distress ink colours to blend my background in my art journal.



 

Once I was happy with my background I stencilled some leaves.



I made my focal by stamping and embossing my words into the centre of a Tim Holtz clock die cut, which I had coloured with distress inks.



Here is my dictionary definition…how very appropriate.






I also coloured some snippets of card to die cut leaves and branches to represent the beautiful trees in the Butterfly Valley


and then it was time to put on my creative hat.


Here is my finished Moment..


visible-image-stamps-live-in-the-moment-butterfly-jane-tyrrell

 

When I look at this page in my art journal it takes me straight back to the sunshine and the memories we made during our wonderful September autumn holiday. Every moment was indeed very special.

Thanks so much for visiting today. The weather has again been glorious for most of this week but it’s turning chillier by the day…I actually got out and wore my winter jacket for the first time on Monday. Autumn is very much here now.

Bye for now,

Jane x



Fabulous page Jane, those sunset colours are wonderful Autumn inspiration too ♡

Visible Image Debut – 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

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 🙂

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.
