VIDEO: New PaperArtsy Eclectica³ {Kim Dellow} Stamps: Make A Layered Tag

New stamps and a new film to go with them! If you were around my blog, or the PaperArtsy blog, on Saturday you would have seen that I have some new PaperArtsy Eclectica³ {Kim Dellow} Stamps – EKD03 – Wahoo! It is my third stamp set with PaperArtsy and I’m just as excited about these stamps as I was about the first two sets launched at the beginning of this year.

Of course I made some samples to go with the new stamp set launch and I hope you enjoyed seeing the photographs of them all on the PaperArtsy blog. But I’ve also put together a film walking through my process for one of these samples.

The sample that I have chosen to share the whole process of is the layered and painted tag. It does give the impression of being really simple doesn’t it? But actually there is a lot of colour and texture, plus some dimension too, going into the making of this tag.

PaperArtsy products are also available from PaperArtsy and various retailers worldwide. You can find a full list of suppliers on my stamp release blog post.

You can see from the video that there are a lot of different techniques in the process of making this project. It starts with a gesso resist and I’ve used the PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints as washes, which you may not be used to seeing them being applied in that way.

I love to experiment and play so I thought I would see how the paints handled when used as a wash or a glaze. There are different ways to do this and I show you how I tried it in the video.

Then there is also lots of stamping with paints which is still one of my favorite techniques at the moment! Oh and you might spot some more painting with a plastic card too and if you haven’t seen it yet I have another video showing how to use a plastic card to add a faux print look to your projects.

Enjoy the video and if you have any comments on what you think about my videos then I would love the feedback, I have a few now on my YouTube Channel. I’m trying to improve them all the time so please do share if you have any thoughts!
