Own Kind of Beautiful

Good Evening! We have Lisa Taggart here on the blog sharing an incredible mixed media canvas…

Did you know that Visible Image have some fabulous background stamps to compliment their feature sets? In today’s post I wanted to celebrate these stamps and show what wonderful texture they can create.

Also I’ve long wanted to experiment with printing feathers using my gelli plate. So I thought that I would incorporate these too. Here’s the result:

Stamps Used:



To begin the project, like I seem to do most days I used a gelli print background from my stash as a starting base. This was created using Golden high flow acrylic paint.

I stencilled over it and built up the background gradually, using distress ink (including oxides) and the background stamps.

I then then flicked some blue, white and gold ink on top. When dry I added another layer of stamping.

Having printed my feathers I used the stamps to stamp on top of these.


I then used the feature set to stamp the butterflies on to scrap card. When cut out I added them along with the sentiment and hearts. I also did some doodling and added highlights with acrylic pens including gold pen. Finally for additional texture I cut up some floristry mesh,adhered gems to the butterflies and attached some black and blue bakers twine.


I think this is one of my favourites. I hope you like it too!
