Pattern Monday 05 – Video from my Ledger

Happy Monday everyone – time for another pattern in my big vintage ledger! For this one I used my Triangle Love and Solid Hex Large stamps. I’m digging the layering with the Hex stamp and how it made three colors with just two ink pads. Check it out in the following video:

    What a fun pattern with colors that remind me of the 4th of July!
    That ledger looks like a great book for an art journal as well.
    As always thanks for the inspiration Nat.

Turn the Page – Art Journal

“Turn the Page!” – Sometimes it is time to move on to the next adventure in life :)

For this art journal spread I built up a patterned background using some of my rubber stamps and a happy selection of ink pad colors. I started with my Fantastic Small and Solid Square Small stamps…

I alternated the direction of the fans as I went and filled the page.

Next I added one of the Hamilton stamps from the Floral Tile Small set…

And the finishing touch on the pattern was one of the Fanfare stamps – these are perfect for giving a pattern those little elements that bring it together.

Look at that lovely pattern! Well….

Oops. Can you spot the mistake? That’s what happens when you set your stamping block down the wrong way on your nice art journal background and it leaves a little ghost square. Oh well, it happens.

Time to focus on the positive :)

 

…Knowing we can always “Turn the page” in the end and start anew.

Here are some of the supplies I used:

    I love the pattern and the colors you used Nat. I never get stamps on the paper the way I want to. It is better when I stamp on a mouse pad or something like that but I’m just never satisfied with the final product. Yes, I see your creative “mistake”. ;-)

      Ha I know what you mean :) The key trick is to not strive for perfection LOL.

NEW Rubber Stamps – FAN-tastic Designs & More!

I have some NEW rubber stamps coming out today! These have been in the making for a while and ever since I have been playing with them I cannot stop – I keep building new patterns. Are you a pattern lover too? Well check these out: First is the FAN-tastic stamps:

There are the two sets: FAN-tastic Large and FAN-tastic Small. The large ones measure 2.75″ across while the small ones measure 1.18″ across. These have six patterns each and can be arranged in all sorts of ways.

It makes me all giddy to see the Large Fan’s arranged in this colorful way. 

This is the Jewett Fan from the small set – tiled up in a classic art deco way.

But ooooo, they can also be arranged this way! This is the Broadway Fan.

And then there are the single stamps: Solid Fan and Solid Fan small – because maybe you want to put a color under your pattern fan…

And then there is also the Fan-fare set of four mini stamps…

These can make patterns on their own and wow are there so many ways to play…

Use them all together and make some awesome patterns! I am totally smitten with these :)

Ok but there’s more:

Those yummy Floral Tile Sets – one as a large one and one as a small one.

Here are the small floral tiles all next to each other

And the big positive and negative stamps used on top of each other.

You can use them as is, with some of the Stencils I have and also with some of the foam stamps. ANNNDDD of course they can be used with the other new stamps as well :)

ANNNNDDD another one I am soooo excited about – the Hex Sets. Again they come as a Large Hex Set and a Small Hex Set.

This is the large Hex Set- which measures approximately 2.75″ across

There are so many ways to use the Hexagons and arrange them to make patterns

but also to use the positive and negative patterns on top of each other

I cannot wait to show you even more of the patterns and designs you can create with those stamps! I can honestly say:

The possibilities of these stamps are limited only by your imagination

Here are all new sets now available in my store:

1,2,3,4,5 – Art Journal

I wanted to share this art journal spread I created using my new Clam Hex Foam Stamp in detail. I stamped the alternating the direction up and down in every row. I just love how versatile this stamp is and how many different patterns you can create with it.

For the numbers I used my letterpress wood stamps and inked them up with different ink, then rubbed a piece of paper on it, cut it out and pasted it with gel medium into the art journal.

That was fun – now repeat tomorrow ;)

Here are some of the supplies that I used

    When I saw this work, I started singing the Beatles’ song “All Together Now”. Now it’s stuck in my head and maybe it will stick in your head, too. :-)

    One, two, three, four
    Can I have a little more?
    Five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, I love you

    A, B, C, D
    Can I bring my friend to tea?
    E, F, G, H, I, J, I love you …
