Sunflower Doodles

I think I have been doodling flowers for ever, and now I have my very own Sunflower Doodles stamp with Carabelle Studios yaaaaaaaaas!!

I stamped the doodles stamp a few times on a mono print which I made on the Gel Press .... you know I have a lot of prints lying around just waiting to be used. I coloured the hearts and the trees before cutting them out and adding to yet another print that was just waiting to be used ;-)

I used this border stamp by Carabelle to add pattern to the backgrounds and then created a little concertina style book.

I also thought this stamp would look great on a greetings card. This time I coloured the image with watercolours for a more intense colourful look.

I have been asked when the stamps will be arriving in the UK ... SOON ... SOON ... they are on their way so watch this space! I will link to vendors just as soon as I know ....... 
EDIT: Available NOW at Art from the Heart

Circles, circles and more circles!

Do you know how much I LOVE circles?! I think nearly all of my journal pages feature circles somewhere ... circles always seem to work - they don't seem to clash with anything.

I created a highly coloured and patterned background first for this page and then used white to add circles.

Once I created the circles I added lots of details; by picking out bits of the stencil pattern peeking though. These small dotty circles were created by using a stencil by Carabelle Studio on the first layer.

The second page was created by painting white over a print I made on the Gel plate. (You can see exactly how I made the original print *here*)

And here they are side-by-side .... circles, circles and more circles!

Printing with Carabelle!

Yes, it's that time again - time for another Gel Press Print To Project video, and this time I get to play with my *new* Art Texture printing plates from Carabelle. Yaaaaas! 

Gel Press + Art Texture printing plates = perfect combination!

Here's a sneaky peek of the finished tag:

Ands here are a few steps along the way:

This time I designed three texture plates and these are now available from stockists of Carabelle Studios :-)
