Create your Own Stamps with Kathryn Cruise

LuluArt profile picHi everyone .. Kathryn here!

For this project I decided to make some of my own stamps. I recently watched a video by CeeCee from Creationsceecee wherein she said that she had to pull down some of her favourite and most popular art pieces from her Society 6 store as she had used stamps/stencils that didn’t have an angel policy that allowed for mass production of artwork where their products were used.

This got me to thinking that it makes it really difficult as an artist to then want to be able to sell prints or other forms of copies of your art work without having to remember exactly which stamps or stencils you can use. So why not make our own?

Stamps

I was actually really excited at the possibilities of what stamps I could make and once I got started I found it super addictive and insanely cheap when you consider how much some rubber stamps are these days. I ended up with quite a few stamps and still have about 1/3 of my Speedy Carve left. I have to say it was so much easier than I thought it would be. I would say my favourite out of all of them was the feather and will definitely be making more feathers and other stamps again.

I’m not saying I won’t continue to use or buy any more stamps but I now know that at least with the stamps I make I can use them where ever I like and not have to worry about an angel policy.

So I hope that you like my video and would absolutely love to see some that you make.

Mixed Media Art Tag with Kathryn Cruise

LuluArt profile picHello again

I trust you all had a fabulous Easter. I know I really enjoyed my time away from work and spending some quality time with my family.

I made a mixed media tag for this months project and really enjoyed working small for a change. Although, I have worked on tags before it has been a while. To me these are like doing a mini art journal page and as always there are no rules as to what you can and can’t do. I hope you enjoy watching my video and I would love to hear what you think and if I inspired you what did you do with that inspiration.

Last month I had one lovely lady share with me her Dylusions journal cover which she did after watching my video. It was really great to see what she did and I love that she shared it with me.

Have some messy fun 🙂

Decorate your Dylusions Journal with Kathryn Cruise

LuluArt profile picHello there lovelies, Kathryn here. I hope you are having a wonderful year so far. I’m absolutely loving seeing everyones Colour Me Positive challenge pages in the facebook group. It’s so wonderful to see everyone having so much fun and sharing their pages. The support and encouragement everyone gives is heart warming and fantastic to see.

It’s Design Team project time and I decided it was time to do something on my Dylusions Art Journal cover. I had some crazy fun with this project and I am very surprised and pleased with the results. Mind you the end result is not even close to what I had planned but I absolutely love it anyway. I hope you enjoy watching my video and would love to hear what you think.

Steampunk Sophie – by Kathryn Cruise

LuluArt profile picHello lovely people

Kathryn here. It’s my turn to share my latest Lulu Art design team project with you. For this project I decided to go a little out of my comfort zone and work on a different substrate and add more dimension to my project. I had loads of fun with this and also learnt a lot during the process. I am still relatively new to mixed media so my style is still evolving. I am really enjoying playing with new products and having so much messy fun with them.
