One of the many reasons I love Stampin’ Up! is that our products are so versatile. For example, we can make ‘clean & simple’, ‘retro’, ‘antique inspired’, ‘vintage’ and ‘cute’ papercraft projects. Coordinated paper, inks, punches, cutting tools and accessories; mean that the ‘sky is the limit’. Did you know that you can also create ‘Paper Art’ using Stampin’ Up! products? From ‘Collage Backgrounds’ using sponging, inking and stamps; to ’3D Multimedia Accents’ created with paper, crystal effects and embossing; there are endless possibilities available to those willing to ‘play’, ‘experiment’ and be brave enough to make a few disasters along the way – Creativity takes Courage, after all!
Some Paper Angels Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators have been working on a Paper Art project and I thought I’d share some of the ‘Work in Progress’. Zena has created one of her now famous ‘ladies’ – this one has been dubbed ‘Aiesha’ and she is a forrest nymph, created with cardstock, paper, stamps, embossing, string, crystal effects and glitter. I am in total awe of the creative use of Stampin’ Up! products in such a unique way. We will be mounting ‘Aiesha’ on a canvas and will share the finished presentation with you soon.
Zena has also created a trio of sponged landscapes that will be mounted on a canvas. I can’t wait till the next round of Paper Angels Demonstrator Meetings at the end of the month because Zena has agreed to demonstrate her techniques! For those Paper Angels Demonstrators that are unable to attend, we will share a video with you. Another great reason to join as a demonstrator with the Paper Angels Team of Independent Demonstrators.
Ursula has also been busy creating an amazing canvas with watercolour paper and our lovely ‘Watercolour Crayons’, which are Stampin’ Up!s ‘Rolls Royce’ of colouring! As you can see, when you start experimenting, things start to get messy but it will be worth it when we can enjoy the finished project, so check back soon to see the completed canvas.
If you have been using Stampin’ Up! products to create ‘Paper Art’, we’d love to see them, so please do email any ideas you’d like to share with our Craft Classroom & Paper Angels community.
