'Creative People colour outside the Lines' by Elisa Ablett

Hi everyone,

Elisa here again with my latest project for the Visible Image design team, a colourful and vibrant Art Journal spread featuring a background created with a Gel Press monoprinting plate and acrylic paint.

I used the fabulous Fibres stencil with the Gel Press plate to create a textured multi-coloured look. I placed it over my gelli plate and sponged a baby wipe over it to take some of the colour off and it produced this gorgeous patterns in my background.

I then stamped the Face -It stamp on the right hand side of my page and addes some white highlights using a white paint pen.

Add your title by stamping your Outside the lines stamp onto scrap paper ( I used a practise piece from my gelli plate adventures) to go with your page.

Cut out your title and mount onto your collaged pieces of paper on the left hand side. 

Add some highlights to make your stamps stand out from your background!

Here are the products I used from the Visible Image Store - 

That's it from me today, I hope you have enjoyed seeing how you can incorporate mixed media techniques such as monoprinting with your stamps!! make your stamp stash go further !

'Love the Glorious Mess You are' by Elisa Ablett

Hi Kraft lovers!

It's that time of the month again over on the Kraft Plus Challenge Blog where a new challenge has been revealed and our design team inspiration has been released!

The new challenge is fantastic, be inspired by the photo on the challenge board, take from the photo - colours, patterns, wood grain etc.

Here is the Challenge graphic -

and here is my layout based on the photo inspiration.

I was inspired by the frames on the wall, the colours, the stripey rug ( i used a ruler to press into different coloured paint and then use as a stamp to make stripey patterns on a piece of paper) and the Mandala cushions. 

I used a Mandala stamp designed by Memory Maze and then hand coloured it with markers.

I wanted a slightly boho/shabby chic look to my layout.

Here is the link to the challenge so you can see all the design team inspiration and the guidelines!

We hope you join in!

Hugs xx
