Live In The Moment

New Stamps, New Products!
It is all happening over at Visible Image at the moment...
with lots and lots of new stamps (yummy)
and something else altogether completely new ~ MONOLITHS.

Monoliths are MDF boards which come with a stand.
You can work on both sides.  
~ and that is double the fun!!!
You can even use them as a kind of mood board ~ so either side reflects a different feeling...there are soooo many possibilites...
They are perfect for anything mixed media.
And they come in packs of 5.

Oh, and not so big that you can't use your stamps on it,
in fact...they are specifically designed for our stamps! 

So here is my first MONOLITH.

After I did this I then did the other side ~
and forgot to take a pic.  Sorry about that.

Stamps Used:
Live In The Moment (new ~ & available for pre-order)

This side was sprayed with some mica's from Finnabair,
and the other side was dribbled with some alcohol inks...in similar colours.
I wanted it to be similar, but different - if that makes sense.

The butterflies were stamped onto tissue paper and then applied.
 To finish, I decided to paint around the base and edges with some black gesso...
ooops, sorry, I didn't take that pic either...

Visible Image will be on Create & Craft this Valentine's Day
(11am) for those who would like to see Pauline play with the new products.  
With the time zones, we are 11 hrs ahead here, so I will be tuning in at 10 pm and watching Mark and Pauline ...I still haven't got around to blowing ink around through a Bic pen yet after the last show!  
It is on my to-do list though.

It is absolutely awesome to be able to see what people look like and hear the sound of their voices...
it makes the world that bit smaller I think.

  • SO, new stamps (pre-ordering is under way)
  • new MDF boards
  • Create and Craft on TV (Feb 14th, 11am)
  • and the UK Trade Show (end of Feb)
~ are all things happening with Visible Image over the next few weeks! Busy times!!!  
And it's so exciting to be a part of it all.
