Introducing PTP Elements -- Sheets of Deep Etched Red Rubber Stamps!!!

Soooooooooo much going on these days! I can hardly keep up at this rate, but I'm trying like hell! LOL 

First -- I've recently introduced my own line of stamps...  

PTP Elements !!!

I named the line elements because I'm using the same design elements that I used creating my line of Patti Tolley Parrish Stencils. I'm sure I'm not the first person to come up with this idea, but you know how us mixed media folks love to layer, right? So I thought about layering the same design elements in different sizes with different tools, and each of the tools can be used with a variety of mediums -- that's MIXED MEDIA! 

I currently have two different sets available for pre-order on my Etsy Shop -- InkyObsessions. My stamp designs are sold on deeply etched red rubber sheets. This is a lot more economical for you and a lot more storage-friendly than wood mounted individual stamps -- however -- if you are a die hard fan of wood mounted stamps, I can get these for you on a special order for one or all of the designs. Just let me know which design(s) you'd like mounted on wood blocks and I'll get you a quote. Another point to mention -- you will see some designs here and not find matching stencils -- YET! These stencils will be available in future releases. So here are the designs on my first two sets:  

SET #1

SET #2

And here are some examples I made on my Ustream the other night playing with the stamps and stencils together. That Ustream is now viewable on YouTube if you are interested in watching. 


  I LOVE this print. I used the Orbit stencil and this print was picked up with the paint left on the back of the stencil, you can see the shimmer of the Pebeo paint! Yum. Then I stamped using the Orbit stamp on a rainbow in pad I had for years and never opened. I'll be opening that ink pad more! ;o)

I will be playing with my stencils and stamps every chance I get to see what other really cool combos I can come up with! And all the prints I collect from this playing will come in handy -- why you ask???  


I'll be published in their Nov/Dec issue! Soooo excited. I'm really thrilled with this especially since this was one of my goals for my art this year and I squeaked in just under the wire!

I told you there was a lot going on! So if you are a stamper or mixed media artist and would like to try out my stamps, you can pre-order them here and I'll ship as soon as they arrive. 

Thanks so much for your continued support! 

Happy Arting!

Did You Know I Have an Etsy Shop???

You didn't know??? Well if you didn't know, I'm telling you now! I HAVE AN ETSY SHOP! Its Inky Obsessions on Etsy. I sell some of my art pieces here as well as some pieces I've had made using my original artwork, like neoprene wine totes and iPhone cases. Here are some pics of some of the items I have in my shop today: 

Here are a few of the neoprene wine totes. Not a wine drinker? (I can't believe I actually just asked that question...but) If you're not, this holds a large bottle of water or soft drinks as well and keeps them cool. Great girlfriend gifts, Mother's Day gifts, Hostess gifts, or a little something pretty for yourself. If you follow me, you'll probably remember the pieces of art or painted papers that I used to make these totes...

My handmade Gelli Notecards and Matching Envelopes are very popular too. These packs of 6 each are handy to have around the house for a quick Thank You note or for a gift as well. Since each is made on my Gelli Plate, each print is unique, so no two cards are alike...

 These eight sets are now on my Etsy shop for sale. The pics below shows the cards contained in some of the sets.

I have a couple Gelli Journals left - or as I like to call them - JumpStart Journals. If you have white page syndrome and need a helping hand getting your art journal pages off to a good start, you can use one of my journals with instant backgrounds. The covers on these two journals are also made of fabric I gelli printed. Gelli inside and out...

This is a claybord made using Silks acrylic glazes and bubbling it  up with a heavy duty heat gun - great texture in this piece! My ode to Jodi Ohl! 

I hope you'll check out my Etsy Shop Inky Obsessions and maybe even share the link with any friends you know are looking for a one-of-a-kind handmade gift or items for themselves. I'll be adding new items when I have them available including some canvases and collages of various sizes and shapes. Stay tuned. 

Thanks again for your support! 

Happy Arting!
