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:
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.
Isn’t this amazing! Awesome drawing by Susanne and such a cool and funky background… LOVE it! <3
You’ll find more of Susanne’s brilliant work over on her blog.
We’ll be back shortly with more fabulous Design Team inspiration 🙂
