Colouricious is a favourite company of mine. Owned by Jamie Malden (who just happens to be a very dear friend), Colouricious makes the most wonderful videos for artists - especially if you are interesting in quilting or fabric arts!
Here's my wonderful stash of wood blocks - which I will be adding to, you can bet! (Did you know you can have your own design carved, exclusively for you? Just like Anne Bagby?)
|I had to photograph them before I used them: they're so nice and clean!|
|A hard choice - which to use first.|
I'm using heavyweight watercolour paper which I've already scored, ready to fold into a book cover.
|I'm using just two stamps for this cover - the larger one for the central area in a repeat pattern, and the oblong one for top and bottom edges.|
Here's a closeup of the stamped impressions: I've sprayed a little light green dye at the bottom to show up the indentations even more.
|So dimensional: GORGEOUS!|
I'll be adding a lot more colour, also some metallic creams... just watch this space!
