Have Compassion | Mental Health Awareness Stamps

Hi there! Lisa Taggart is here on the blog today with a superb mixed media project created with our ‘Don’t Judge’ stamp set…


Hello! Have you been enjoying the new autumn release stamps from visible image? Today I’m using one of my favourite sets. I love the versatility of this set. Perfect sentiments and brilliant combination of images. Great for mixed media and journaling projects as well as cards of course.

It’s great to get an opportunity to use up interesting scraps after a gel press printing session. Today’s project uses an MDT tag.


The steps:


Select an interesting print and cut to fit the tag. Stick with tacky glue and sand the edges. I also painted the back and tag stand using black gesso.



Heat emboss the image three times in black on printed leftovers. Then cut out.



Stamp and cut out a number of jig saw puzzle pieces from the scraps. Stamp more of these images on the main tag and stick the cut out pieces on top paying attention to the background colours. A contrast is best. Then heat emboss the scribble stamp on two of the person cut outs and repeat the puzzle card piecing technique on them too. Add the safety pin stamp on the centre image and heat emboss in black.




Heat emboss the heart in black on to the tag. Add some ink splatters in black and white. Assemble the cut out images on top using foam pads. I also added black thread for extra texture. Stamp the sentiments and cut out. Edge using black ink. Adhere to project. Finally use a pale coloured paint pen for a little doodling around the edges.

This is so awesome! We love how you stamped the jigsaw pieces in the background and then layered some on top, it creates superb dimension on your stunning background. The figures look so striking too! Thank you Lisa ♡

Tiny Visual Journal | Mixed Media Art

Hi there! Up next to inspire you today is the fabulous Martha with a brilliant project and a new video…

visual journal

My previous project for Visible Image was an altered chewing gum box, as usual while working on a gelli plate I clean my brayer on a sheet of copy paper. So at the end of the project I found my self with a nice colored sheet of paper that I could not waste.



Here is the process video of what I created using some wonderful stamp sets by Visible Image:
