soo.. thanks for all the well wishes from my announcement yesterday on the stamp line! so excited.. today has been CRAZY busy.. holy cow. busy getting the video done for today.. had two meetings to go too.. packing, writing blog posts.. the night is still young.. and I don't leave until 6 am tomorrow morning.. so I will be pulling an all nighter baby! lol
oh but today.. I just found out that Memory Box (the event in Puerto Rico) will have some for sale at their store this weekend while I am there.. so that is AWESOME! (they did a special run just for them).. okay.. so want a peek? so I did 3 lines. I did a she art line (girls) a texture line.. and a doodled stamp set. Here are a few of the texture stamps. I had them UNMOUNTED because I know for me.. I love to be able to get them into the canvas.. and when they are wood mounted it makes it a little bit harder.. so this way you can use them without a mount.. OR mount them on acrylic if you want! I designed them for the mixed media artist!
Distressed quilt (this is actually a set of papers I created and then distressed and made them into a stamp.. so fun for texture!)
Poppy Chevron: So of course you KNOW i had to have a chevron.. and this isn't the only one :) love love love it!
SheArt Print Texture (this was a must have for me.. never too many text prints! Specially one with she art phrases on them!)
and now a final peek.. this is SHE was a daughter. I think this would be awesome on canvas.. filled in with watercolor.. or Faber Castell.. yum!
so there is a peek of some of them! I will post more through the week!
now onto today's behind the art!
So this month's mixed media kit that we had available in our Scarlet Lime store (right now it's only available by subscription.. and if you wish to join.. email me! We can get you on the waitlist starting in March)
but it included a lot of cool thing.. a stamp carving kit, matt medium, a sample pack of claudine hellmuths paints, emphermera, canvas and kraft tags..
I wanted to have a kit this month that TOTALLY took everyone out of their comfort zone.. taught them a new technique and how to use a new product..
So in this video I show you how to create and carve your own stamps..
using the stamp carving kit.. THEN I show you how to do a fun resist technique using the stamp we make along with matt medium and claudines transparent paints.
AND for those of you that want to try your hand at this.. or if you want to make more than one!! We do have some of the stamp pads available in our store for you to carve with.. they are available HERE
we are also getting more actual KITS in (that come with the pad and the tools) it's so addicting and fun to do. PLUS kids can do it too!
Oh and before I forget.. here is download of the doodled stamp that I show above.. so you can use it as a guide if you don't want to doodle your own.
