Creativity..

Hi there! We hope you are having a great weekend so far!

Josefine Fouarge is here with some awesome mixed media cards and a brilliant video tutorial too..




I was in the mood for some mixed media fun, but I didn’t want to create an art journal page or canvas. So I decided to create some mixed media art on a card instead. My new paint addition from a Black Friday sale and some of the Visible Image stamps helped me making my idea a reality.





I started with some texture for the background and added a mix of peach and grey color to it. I never used that color combo, but have seen several great projects from other crafters with it. After I was done with the background, I stamped my two focal images onto tissue paper and adhered them to the now cut down card panels.

The only thing missing was a sentiment, so I used the “creativity” part for the front and the rest for the inside. I heat embossed the sentiment onto black cardstock, distressed it (so it fits to the grungy look of the background) and adhered it to the card.


Do you want to see the process? No worries, I prepared a step-by-step video 🙂



I really like the grey and peach color combo. I probably have to use it more often 😀
What color combo do you like that you haven’t used in a while or always wanted to try?

Disguise..

Hi there! We have 2 awesome tags to share with you here on the blog this evening!

First up here’s Veerle Moreels with a fantastic video tutorial…



I love bringing things together that for me personally just go hand in hand, and today’s projects is no difference. So many times my brain and soul are just taking over when creating and then I lay down different tiny details that carry that little message.





There’s a reason why the bister is on there, why those tiny little speckles of tiny metal foil are on there and why these beautiful Visible Image stamps were combined.

It might just seem like a big black bauble on my project, and that’s perfectly ok. Creating is something you do for yourself in the first place. Now I could go and explain why this project became what it is but I don’t want to. I think it’s way more effective when you let people look at things without directing them in any way.



Enjoy the video..



Stamps Used:

Ink Splats

 

Disguise of a Smile



Wow! Such a stunning tag Veerle thank you  ♡  Loving the video too!

Breathe…

Good Evening! We have some beautiful inspiration for you from Veerle Moreels, featuring another of our new stencils…



Sometimes when you see something there immediately pops an idea into your head and you can’t wait to go ahead and give in to that idea. So I was very happy when the stencils from Visible Image arrived here at home. Yes you are reading it right: stencils from Visible Image ^.^





And of course I filmed my first play with the stencils…



That tiny spot in between the strobes is just perfect to put tiny elements in and get them in the spotlight. Keep an eye out because I still have loads of ideas for this stencil ^.^




Products Used:


Strobes




Imagine Dream Inspire




Stunning tag Veerle ♡  And a fabulous video too, thank you!

Broken Wings

Hello! Thank you for coming to check out the latest inspiration here on our blog.

Veerle has created some beautiful inspiration for this month’s themed challenge over in our Facebook group…

 

This month’s theme is:


 

So I had to pick out one of the sentiments/words… that’s a tough choice as I love the words so much.
But I went for the one that definitely has a very special meaning for me…


Learn To Fly Again





I love every stamp in the set but it’s the words that are just… well this one still stands on my dresser as a little reminder…





Curious what I made this time? I’ve made a new video so you can see how it was made.






Incredibly beautiful project Veerle thank you  ♡

Anything Is Possible

Hello! We are back with more incredible inspiration for you!

Veerle has created a stunning tag and has also made a video tutorial for this project too…


A few weeks ago I showed you this card using the Visible Image ‘Believe in Unicorns’ stamp set.



And I have had some more fun using it in not one but two projects ^.^


My daughter, who loves the moon, asked me to make her a bookmark creating a universe and this moon.
Now I never had made a universe background so I had a tryout… and I filmed it for you ^.^





And the bookmark…



So two more projects using the same set yet looking completely different!

 

Stamps Used:

Believe in Unicorns



Gorgeous projects Veerle thank you ♡ Loving those backgrounds!

Hello there! We have some stunning new inspiration to share with you from Teresa Morgan…


This week I have been using my Gelli Plate to create some fun backgrounds for my stamping projects. I have prepared a video for you showing how easy it is to whip up a batch of monoprints ready to be turned into cards, journal pages, tags and more.



I took one of them and added more details with my Visible Image stamps and WOW powders embossing powder to create this cool card:

Love you – Visible Image

Hi there! Thank you so much for visiting our blog today.

We have a stunning card to share with you today, which also has a brilliant video tutorial, created by Veerle Moreels…



It’s my turn to share a project here at Visible Image and would like to share some Inktense Visble image love ^.^  I loved combining the Visible Image stamps together this way. And I tried out the inktense colorpencils for the very first time on this card.

Curious on how I brought the 3 stamps together and how I used the pencils? I have put it all in this liddle video tutorial for you…



I’m pretty sure you will see more cards like these show up.  Maybe even recognize part of it in my Christmas cards ( I really have to get started I know 👀 ) But for now it’s this one…as we can never say “I love you” enough.
