PRIMA Tag Pads make creating a joy.


We adore the Jule Nutting Prima Tag Pad.


Here are some experiments using Prima products that made me happy.  

Using the PRIMA tag pad,  Prima florals, some Splash Inks, alcohol inks, seam binding that I dyed, pen, gold ink and stamp pads.  

I will carry my Prima Tag Pad with me everywhere, so easy to create when traveling, or in a free moment.   



Since watercolor paper absorbs, I tried simply dropping ink onto the paper and watched it flow.  I think it was pretty OK.  The inks absorbed beautifully on the seam binding.  I also dropped some ink onto some of the flower stamens to make them pop.


I was 5 years old in this photo.   On this tag, I dropped ink and then used a stamp pad to color the white areas.   I used gold ink (on my finger to edge the paper).  I wrapped some gold thread from my stash too. Truth be told, I used my label maker to create the words.








For this tag, I used stamp pads and rubbed them onto the paper which gave me a nice texture effect.   It reminds me of Sunrise.  I added a few mica chips to make it shine.  And I cut out some paper for the leaves, using a marker to color them.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle. Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today. One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer ab
