Mark Making Stamps: Collages

Hello
Last week saw the release of my That’s Crafty Lynne’s Carved Leaves stamp sets 1 and 2, also the release of Lynne’s Mark Making stamp sets 1 and 2.
The Mark Making stamps came about as a result of playtime with a fineliner bottle of Acrylic Drawing Ink.
The trio of rectangles in set 1 can be stamped as a trio or inked up individually.  I have been using this particular stamp to form frames for stamped words.
With the “line” stamps, although I have used them simply to add marks to edges of journals, etc, I have also used them to form larger frames.  This is made easier with the stamps being clear, easing the placement to form frames.
Set 2 has a large frame style stamp which is really useful: stamp inside the frame, add a photo, use as a journaling space, etc.   Here are two quick samples made for That’s Crafty’s appearance on HOCHANDA last week. Although the focus was on the Journal, each D.T. member received a new journal to work in, I also wanted to make samples to show the new stamps.
For each collage, I paired a Mark Making stamp with an Affirmation from Lynne’s Affirmations Set 12
On each collage I also used That’s Crafty! products, their Flat Matte Sprays, Walnut Ink Crystals, Sand Texture Paste and Texture Paste.  Also their fabulous new product, Liquid Acrylic Wax.
As I said, they were relatively quick samples but I wanted to show that the Mark Making stamps can be used on projects other than in journals.
That’s Crafty Lynne’s Mark Making Stamp Sets 1 and 2, available HERE.
Thank you for taking the time to visit.

Yes, I am thrilled to have new stamp releases, four new stamp sets and along with the stamps, there are a few fabulous new products from That’s Crafty!
I have been sharing a few posts on social media featuring the new stamps and will be sharing more because That’s Crafty! will be appearing, two shows, Monday 29th April on HOCHANDA. With Jo Channon at the helm, she will be chatting about the new products and of course, demos with them. The team have been busy creating samples so it would be fun if you managed to tune in, record or watch on rewind.

Wisdom of the Trees Part II (Somerset Studio)

Hello
This is Part II to this previous post, sharing collages inspired by trees and their wisdom which were published in an issue of Stampington & Co’s Somerset Studio last year.
Sharing today the final three collages.
Collage 4
As with previous collages, the trees were stamped onto lovely, delicate tissue such as dressmaker tissue.Infusions were the aid in bringing touches of colour, earthy colours as though they were pigments created from natural elements gathered from a walk in the woods.Collage 5Stained book text, again with Infusions, are a gentle layer that peeks through from the stamped tissue. Corrugated cardboard evokes ruts in the ground.Collage 6Layering fragments beneath the trees, again aiming to conjure images of layers of texture in a landscape.
I appreciate both posts were lengthy so many thanks for taking the time to visit both of the posts.
It is nice to be able to catch-up, sharing projects from some time ago, next I need to start to be able to visit blogs, something I enjoyed doing so much before.
Until next time,
Wishes

Wisdom of the Trees Part I (Somerset Studio)

Hello
In the Sept/Oct 2017 issue of Somerset Studio I have a feature, Wisdom of the Trees.
This project was initially inspired by a Somerset Studio Art Call which I had previously submitted to, finding myself still inspired by their challenge of working with tags, I continued to play, creating collages with tags as the substrates.  I was enjoying this project so much, I made collage after collage and it was understandable that Somerset Studio were not going to give page room for all the collages I submitted but I can share them all here and will do over two posts.
A footnote to this… on each collage I add some journalling, not giving any thoughts, allowing the words to freely flow from mind to pen, to project. Little did I know at that time, some of those words would be transformed into Affirmations, featuring on Set 7 of That’s Crafty Lynne’s Affirmations stamps.  This creative path is something to behold!
I wanted a sense of textures and fragments, something I find, unconsciously returning to is the thought of tattered elements being caught on a passing breeze.  I wanted a sense of that on each collage, of different textures, swept together by that breeze and resting as a collage.That piece of green lace, was from a panel of pure white lace I received as a gift from a lovely friend Sharon in the U.S.A.  I stained it with Infusions and this fragment brought to mind fresh leaves or possibly a shoot appearing from the hard earth.Collage 2Infusions brought not only earthy goodness to each collage, they also brought variation as I wanted to create a series.As you can see, texture was essential, in fact in most of the collages it was the layering of various textures which created a sense of grounding for the stamped trees above. Collage 3All the trees are from Crafty Individuals, they surely create some of the very best tree stamps. I am always fascinated by the effects achieved with Infusions, simply applied over Gesso.On each collage, as I mentioned at the top, I journalled.  You can just about see some of the journaling beside the button.  What is very freeing is not taking time to consider penmanship or actual words, simply allowing them to flow. This is only half of the series, I have Part II to share another day.
In the meantime, many thanks for your visit.
