Thanks for popping in. It’s Mixed Mixed Friday on the Craft Store TV tomorrow, so I’ve been head down and prepping all day. All set now, to show you some tricks n tips using some very lovely new Claritystamps….
What’s coming up? Well, here we are taking LinoCut stamps to the next level. We’ve deconstructed the original art into individual elements, so that you can rebuild it in YOUR style. This really is so cool! And the best bit is:
THEY ALL WORK TOGETHER !!
The 3 New Backdrop stamps which accompany the floral cuts are not only completely interchangeable within the three flowers sets – they also serve to create a Linocut style with loads of your other stamps! Especially the little additional chatter stamps in each set. See what I mean?
If you appreciate Linocuts, you will be familiar with this kind of art. It has a real earthy kind of feel, and is often constructed in raw layers, which sit on top of each other, but don’t fit perfectly. It’s all about the layout and the layering. So our Claritystamps are perfect for positioning the arty layers here!
I shall add the backdrops on the leaves tomorrow…
Now here’s another invaluable new set! I always reach for the Mixed Impression Dots And Spots Grunge set, because it hits the spot every time – literally!
Well, this one – Netting overlays – just zoomed to the top of my Grungey Texture Mats hit parade!
Spectacular. Look what our dear Sam Crowe has done with it…
I love this one too, by Debbie McMullin.
The Poppy Set is very cool too. In fact, there’s a little Poppy Stampset which I drew years ago, which sits absolutely perfectly with this lino set. ThePoppies and meadowgrasses are on the show tomorrow too. They work with the backdrop Linocuts like a charm
Interesting how these über fine poppy stamps blend in so seamlessly…
Well, I hope you can join me at 9am and 1pm tomorrow, when we shall be putting these new designs though their paces, and showing you how to make great art with them. xx
The Craft Store (aka HOCHANDA) Friday 25th June at 9am & 1pm
See you there.
