Tracy Evans' New Release for AALL & Create

Hello Friends

I was so thrilled to be able to create some projects for Tracy Evans with her latest release of stamps for AALL & Create.  I am continuing this week with another of Tracy's beautiful new stamps,
Wild and Free (#238), to create a journal.

I die cut one of Eileen Hull's Notebook Journals for my base.  The mountboard was given a coat of Gesso to give me a good base for watercolouring.
I coloured the flower with watercolour paint, let it dry and then spritzed the journal lightly and just dribbled paint in sections over the cover, letting them blend and dry naturally.  I mixed in a little Iridescent medium into the paint to give a light shine.
This is a close up of the finished cover, you can see a little of the Iridescent shine.  I coloured a second flower and decoupaged this up on the cover and added an elastic closure.
For the inside I created a small notebook and also a writing block.
For the cover of the writing block, I used a 'tissue' technique that Tracy showed in one of her Hochanda demos last weekend, I was quite pleased with the result!  I painted it with watercolours.
You can find a list of stockists for the whole of the new stamp release HERE, including countries around the world.  Whilst you can purchase direct  AALL & Create advocate the use of your local stockist to purchase the stamps and stencils.


Finally, I am sharing a few of the samples that I made for Tracy's recent shows,
it was lovely to see them on TV!

Thanks so much for your visit, it is much appreciated and I hope to see you
again soon.

Hugs, Anne xxx

  11. wow, Anne! You have been a busy girl! I love your journal with the bold flower atop the shimmery water color background. I'm so curious about the technique you learned using the tissue--looks great! And all of these samples are just gorgeous, perfectly made and diverse.

  13. Gorgeously sunny and happy makes Anne! You are so talented. I'm sure Tracy is thrilled with all your creations. She did a star turn on Hochanda and everything looked fabulous. Nicola x

  14. That's a lovely journal, Anne - the bright pop of the yellow flower against the blues and browns is great. Lovely version of Tracy's tissue stamping too - I saw it over at her blog and thought at first she'd been stamping into texture paste - it's a cool effect and looks lovely in blue and brown! Fabulous samples for the show - it's easy to see you've been having lots of fun with the gorgeous new stamps.
