'No beauty shines brighter than that of a good heart' by Elisa Ablett

Hi everyone,

Elisa here from the design team for Visible Image with my latest mixed media projects featuring one of the NEW and exciting Written in the Stars - Zodiac stamp sets that have just been released by this AWESOME UK Company. These stamps are so versatile so far the team have made cards, tags, mixed media projects, a wall hanging, journal pages - so you can see they are well worth it!

I am featuring the Capricorn Stamp Set on a galaxy art journal page along with the Believe in Unicorn stamp set and a texture background featuring water colour crush powders plus wax kitchen paper.

I also have a second project on offer featuring the same stamp set! a mixed media tag with alcohol inks and acetate and gold foiling.

Here are some close ups of my Art Journal - Capricorn Galaxy page and my Alcohol Ink and Acetate mixed media tag!

Some of the techniques used on this art journal page include - wax kitchen paper collage, embossing, watercolour wet on wet and gold foiling using a glue stick!

Water colour powders called Colour Crush by Tinby Designs in Australia were used to create the colours in the background.

Some of the techniques used on my tag - a monoprinted background with a gel plate, alcohol ink on acetate and gold foiling on acetate.

Here are the awesome versatile stamp set - Zodiac Capricorn, the link is below underneath the stamp set. 

That's it from me today! 

Check out my social media links - follow along to see all my new projects!

Kraft Plus February challenge has been revealed!

Hi Krafters!

Its that time of the month again, new challenge and new reveal by the design team for Kraft Plus Challenge blog. 

This month we have a fabulous ABBA inspired challenge, its unique and different so put your thinking caps on and blow us away with your creativity.

Here is the challenge and link to the blog.

Current Challenge

and here is my design team creation for the challenge.

I was inspired to make an art journal page, my thinking cap was on and I thought what about trying to create an 'album cover' featuring lyrics and musical notes and a bit of 60 and 70's psychedelia. 

"Inspired by the lyrics from the Abba song - I have a dream - 'You can take the future, even if you fail.' 

Some of the techniques used are gelli plate printing, stamping, stamping on acetate, rice paper collage and mark making.

Make sure you head on over to the Kraft Plus Blog and give this challenge a go, it is fabulously unique and challenging. 

Thanks for stopping by the blog today :-)
