No automatic alt text available.and we are collaborating with Visible Images stamps.  they are a company based in the UK and their stamp and stencil designs are unique, original and different! Arty images, inspiring quotes, and brilliant backgrounds for cards, journal pages and mixed media pieces!

Visible Image

and i was so lucky to receive from them the No Space for Dreams (https://visibleimage NULL.co NULL.uk/product/no-space-for-dreams/) set. i fell in love with the stamp ‘dreams’ and i wanted it as a constant reminder so decided i need to make something a little unique with it other than an art journal page.

Although these companies have provided me with some product to create this project the opinions I share are solely my own.

i made this quick and inspiring coaster simply by stamping the silhoutte using black distress paint onto a sheet of watercolour paper. once the paint was dry i used some colour burst and added a bit of colour. i love how the randomness turned out perfectly!

i then stamped the quote using embossing ink and sprinkled some antiquities weathered wood powder and heat set. i then let the whole thing sit for a day prior to glueing it down to a coaster and then covering it with Ice Resin.

and that is that! hope you have enjoyed my project and that you take the time to make one of your own and join in with us this month at Mixed Media Monthly.  be sure to include the  graphic in your blog post in order for it qualify for your chance to win this months prize sponsored by Visible Image!

until next time my friends
