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:
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 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???
BECAUSE I JUST HEARD FROM CLOTH PAPER SCISSORS MAGAZINE AND THEY HAVE SELECTED ONE OF MY SUBMISSIONS TO BE PUBLISHED!!!!!! OMG!!! YES!!!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!
