Never A Dull Moment @ Visible Image

It’s Corrie Herriman’s turn to brighten the day with her latest project here on the Visible Image blog…


Hello everyone,

For my DT post for Visible Image, I have decorated one of the brand new Free Standing Monoliths with one of the brand new stamp sets. Oh, and I have used a few stamps or an older set too. The monoliths are a super product and such fun to decorate.


This is the front…

And here is the back…

I started with painting the monolith with gesso. I applied two coats. Next I painted the front and back with Dina Wakley acrylic paints. I used my fingers for the front and for the little stand and a brush for the back.With a polka dot stencil I added some dots with the same colours on the front and with white paint on the front and the back. Next I used a script stamp and grey Archival ink to add some interest. I also stamped a swirl on the back using pink acrylic paint. This works really well, just make sure you wash your stamps straight away so the paint doesn’t dry on it.


I had already stamped the girl on some tissue paper and after I cut her out I adhered her to the front with gel medium. I went around the image with a white gel pen to make her stand out a little more. Next I stamped the sentiment with black Archival ink directly on the front and added some white dots to the word sparkle.

I also added the sentiment to the back but used VersaMark and white embossing powder. Lastly I drew a few lines around all the elements and coloured the edges with a black Big Brush Marker and that was that !

 

Stamps I used:

Could It Be Magic – Visible Image Stamps

Hello! We are back with another fantastic project created with our NEW stamps! Over to Carol Fox…


Here on the Visible Image Blog today I have one of the lovely new Monoliths to share with you, paired with one of the stamp sets from the new release.

I used… 


I began by prepping my Monolith with gesso. I then used my Gelli Plate to build up my basic background. I used my DecoArt Multi Surface paints for this as they have the lovely bright colours that I like on to use with my Gelli.


I then used more Gesso to add the star burst effect with a stencil, to get the position of this right I stamped my Unicorn onto my Monolith and then positioned the stencil and applied my Gesso.




I then stamped the word from the text stamp in the set and used Glossy accents over this to seal it.


My stars are done with a clear acrylic gel that I added DecoArt Media paint too, to get the bright pop of turquoise, also adding gold Beadazzels to it before using a pallet knife to apply through a stencil. This dried semi-translucent which was the look I wanted, so I was please this worked as I had not tried it before.




I then stamped my Unicorn onto lightweight card, cut it out and stuck it in place over my previously stamped image which I could still just about see.



The back is done in the same way but with the full quote used on the center of the block over the starburst of Gesso.

I sealed my block with a satin varnish to give it a light sheen.



The NEW release stamps from Visible Image are now available to pre-order from their on-line shop as are the Monoliths. I am sure you will find some new favorites among the new stamp releases, and I must say that the Monoliths are pretty awesome to work on.
