and it's Emma Godfrey's turn to share her new releases tonight. I LOVE THESE STAMPS. Emma's gone big and bold with this release which is PERFECT for some mixed media art, journalling and a bit of Bluebertie madness along the way... Emma has such a knack for putting together great elements you just know you'll go back to again and again. I love the bigger wording this time around and I think you will too.
Here's the video round up - enjoy
I've gone a bit more mixed media tonight as you will see...
I just kept layering up elements from the heart set until I was happy with this one. It's not my usual style but that made it all the more fun. The elements in the set are all so beautiful and well thought out. I would have thought this set is an absolute must for Valentines Day.
Next up is my swirly girly. I so wish we'd video'd the unveiling of this little lovely when I handed over my samples to Emma and Leandra. We all laughed so hard. Leandra, in fact, nearly needed oxygen at one point - I thought we were going to lose her :oD I made her using elements picked from the flower collection and the circle collection. The germ of an idea just kind of grew and there she was... I'd recommend stamping out all the elements every time you get a stamp set. Cut them out, move them around and see what occurs to you.... It's a bit like reading tea leaves, only way more fun...
Another Fresco frenzy here! I love the bright colours Emma picked for her samples, so I threw them ALL in there and I think they look great. The flowers are just so big and happy. I particularly like the swirly centres. They layer up beautifully. I turned them into chipboards and cut them out, layering them onto my base board. I love those scribbled squares (you probably noticed) so I decided to make them stand out and add some structure to the page by embossing them in white. I think the black and white flower stalk in the set makes a great frame. I can see it would be really useful for framing a page or giving yourself lines to write on in your journal too.
And just because I like to mix things up a bit and try out lots of different things I thought I'd show you how great the images work with a more delicate approach using Copic Markers and my favourite blues and greens. It changes the look completely.
and last but not least, here's a little door hanger I made for That's Crafty where I turned the circles into Sunflowers and used the sort of buckle shaped square from the flower set to make petals.
I hope you've enjoyed my samples tonight. Please do stop by the PaperArtsy Blog to see Emma's own amazing step outs and take in Clare Lloyds latest release too. See you again soon... Enjoy the rest of the week.
