Texture Printing by Birgit Koopsen

Ooooh Carabelle Studio now have ROUND paper to fit the round Gel Press plates. Genius! It is beautiful quality paper and I'm in LOVE with it :-)


Carabelle Studios are sharing this creation on their social media today  ... you can find it on Facebook and Instagram.

Variations on a theme!



Over on Facebook, Carabelle Studio are sharing one of my journal pages using 'Angel' designed by me for Carabelle Studio as well as some fabulous stamps by Alexis and Birgit. It was really fun to stamp this image twelve times and then colour her differently each time and slightly different details to each little plaque. Really makes you think!

Here it is in my journal alongside another page using a simple repeating motif of circles.


If you're on Facebook you can follow the Carabelle Studio page *here* for lots of ideas and inspiration :-)

Distressable Impressable Mandala.


It's time for another Print-to-Project video for Gel Press, and this time I dug out one of my Impressable plates as I haven't used it for a while. I used it a bit differently to create a colourful, distressed 'negative' print of a mandala.

I hugely appreciate all of the video views and comments on you tube, so a big thanks to you all :-)

You can see part 1 of the video here, and part 2 will follow on Saturday, and all videos are free to view:


The focus on this video series is how to complete and finish your prints and actually turn them into something (ok, ok, I know you've got a box full of unfinished prints somewhere!!)

This is how my print begins .... pretty average looking I know!


But with a little bit of work it can be turned into something very different:




Bye for now, and don;'t forget you can see all of my videos in the right order, and in one simple place on my blog *here*

Gotta love colour :-)

Lolly Dolly
Grungy Patterns
Leafline
By me! For Carabelle Studio

A scribbly doodly page in my art journal using a lot of colour! Acrylic paints, Distress crayons, Posca poems, Stabilo pencil - you name it, it's here!


I added elements using deli paper. Love this stuff! Such a simple way to layer colour.




And I tried out my new background and texture stamps for Carabelle Studio (not quite in the shops yet but soon ..... )
