a set a day...#5...

#5...
one of my favorite numbers...
and one of my favorite sets...
I seriously LOVE it...

and guess what?
today...I'll finally peek a few art parts...

here we go with another large set...

introducing...

DESTINATION ART




that cute little ink bottle is so much fun...

I have stamped it (jet black archival) on Clearly For Art, cut it out & shaped it, to make it more
rounded & dimensional...
I have a project to show you later on...

and here's what it looks like, stamped on an ART PART!

YES...
YIPPEE!

I'm flippin thrilled to tell you that I designed some stamps that coordinate with ART PARTS...

or we will have art parts with matching stamps...

take a look...
I had to chop the photo so I didn't spill anyone else's beans...
get it?
he'd KILL me...dead...


it's absolutely simple...

just lay your stamp on your work surface...
ink it with RANGER inks...
why of course!
and press the art part onto the coordinating stamp...

and like magic...
you have created a very dimensional solid embellishment to use in your art...

in total there are 9 art parts with coordinating stamps...
these are the first 2...
7 coming soon...

the other new art parts can be stamped with any background stamp...
or inked...
or painted...
or color washed or...
papered...


ok...back to the bottle...
it's 2 inches tall...

the label is rectangle...
so it's easy to cut & layer...

on the sample above I just stamped an extra on a grunge scrap & glued it right over the other for even more layers...
so it's easy to change the label color...

I stamped it on a scrap again & cut out just the tiny diamond on the label...
a tiny detail...
but it matters...

so...the stamp can be used on an art part...
or the clearly for art...
or stamped & cut out...

the saying...I HOPE you realize this is art...
makes me laugh...
sometimes people just don't get what we do & they need a gentle reminder...
or maybe a BOLD one...

and then the art truck...

be still my heart...
OMG!
I TOTALLY flippin LOVE this thing...
especially when it's stamped on an ART PART!

this photo had to be chopped too...
but there's the little cutie...



and here's a closer look...
it's about 3 3/4 inches wide...
and about 1 1/2 inches tall...

it's simple to embellish, with just a few long fasteners or snaps...
or...
little buttons...

there's nothing better than an art delivery right to your door...



next...the photo artist label...
another vintage find that I adore...

looks good as a filler in a collage...
stamp it several times to make a border across your base...

stamp it several times vertically to make any length border you need...

I AM AN ARTIST...
I'm pleased with this one...

who doesn't need a sign for their studio as a reminder?

this will be fun too for art journals...

oops!...I can see me using that LOTS...
I think an inky fingerprint with the oops will be fun...

I'll use oops with some funky art too...

"this was created" is another I like LOTS...

it's a reminder to always sign your art...

and the last saying seemed a perfect fit for the truck...
I used it for a book #4 project...
it worked out well...

so that was one of the big secrets I've been dying to share...

if you're a blog reader, you might remember that when I was driving to St. Louis to teach, I had this idea...

I wasn't sure if we could do it...

I frantically called Ted & he loved the idea...
and said "we sure could"...

and this is the result...
art parts with coordinating stamps...

but that was a take off of my original idea...
my first thought was to size some art parts so that they would be a perfect fit for...


let me just say...
wait 'til you see what's coming next....

happy Friday to you...

time for me to....
make art...
wendy
ps...2 more things...

If you are in Texas...
Ted is there this weekend with LOTS of stamps in BRAND NEW BOOTHS...
stop & see him demo...
check out the fancy new booth...

you can find the details here...

and........

THANKS to Amy for this tip...
wendy, have you heard of tumblr.com? it's a blog you create that allows you to electronically file away bits from blogs you like. it can be just a photo, a quote, a link, and it's all easy to arrange because at the top of the page there is a header that you click on to submit your photo, quote, link, etc. it then allows you to type in key words for each blog entry that you can later sort through to find the information you're looking for. I thought maybe you're followers might want to know about this so they can keep track of your fresh ideas.

And so can you!

I use it all the time, and it's a little embarassing how many of your blogs entries I've saved there. But you've got so many good ideas!

Lori said...

Wowza! I was seriously wondering if you would make stamps to match the art parts, and VIOLA! here they are! Love, love, love these! (a vintage motorcyle art part and stamp would be awesome, in my opinion..lol) Can't wait to see the art parts for configurations! Coolio!

Happy Friday Wendy!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your Ink Bottle stamp! Actually this entire set is a must have....I can see the ink bottle stamped on its side with a puddle of ink (can you design a puddle stamp?!), and a fountain pen. I love the fact that you can stamp it and cut it out, just like the bottle stamp from several sets back, totally dimensional. My apologies to my English teachers for any and all errors in this comment! Have a great weekend.
Trish
