With all the craziness of National Scrapbooking Day, I didn’t find the time to make new things for my stores last week, but this week I have something really special for you!
My husband, Wim, is an artist. He teaches art to children from 6-12. And he coaches teachers in schools to help them teach art to children… He has an upcoming exhibition in September, with the rest of his colleagues, and on Sunday he came home with these breathtakingly beautiful textures that he had created. He had been mixing gesso, bistre and black acryclic paint on plastic sheets. The back of those sheets was painted white with gesso, but was kept somewhat transparent.
And the best thing of it all? He allowed me to scan those textures and make them available through my stores!
So… now you can get nine exclusive, stunning mixed media artist papers, brought to you straight from the atelier of the artist Wim Heldenmoed, to create art yourself, by using these artist papers as backgrounds in your digital scrapbooking, papercraft, art journaling or other projects. Included in this pack is a printable letter size version of each paper, for a jumpstart on your journals!
You will receive 18 Hi Res 300 DPI JPG files, including:
– 9 papers in a 8,5 x 11 inch version
– 9 papers in a 12 x 12 inch version
My Creative Team has created some gorgeous stuff with these papers (don’t they always 🙂 ) to inspire you:
Amazing layout by Ange… I’m in love with hat picture and the silvery colours she used… This could be a page to document a holy communion celebration, or a wedding! Ange used the Acrylic Transition Mixed Media Papers with bits and pieces from Fly Me To The Moon, Among The Shadows, Dreaming Of Christmas, Edgar Allan Poe Quotes, My One True Love and Whimsical Templates Vol02.
Another poetic page, this one is from Jen. She used the Acrylic Transitions Mixed Media Papers with things from Spring Fever, Vintage Tropical Transfers & Brushes, Things To Do In The Garden, Wonderland and Vintage Herbarium Papers.
A wonderful page by Barbara! I love everything she used here, it all works so well with the paper from the Acrylic Transitions pack… Barbara used bits and pieces from Among The Shadows, Castles & Princesses and the new commercial use packs, Vintage Findings Vol01 and Button Mix Vol02.
Em has combined one of the Acrylic Transitions papers with A Moment Captured, and I think this works so well together! The orange adds a beautiful contrast to the whole layout. Those adorable pictures of her little boy are so cute.
I’ve been playing too 😉 I blended two papers of the Acrylic Transitions paperpack together and combined that with the following products: Worn & Tattered Vintage Newspaper Textures, A Touch Of Paint Vol01, A Moment Captured Elements II, Things To Do In The Garden Elements, Easter Morning, Fly Me To The Moon Brushes and a jeweled piece from the new commercial use pack, Vintage Findings Vol01.
I also have three new commercial use packs for you this week:

If you’re looking for more commercial use deals, be sure to visit my commercial use shop at Digital Scrapbooking Studio tomorrow. There is going to be another 3-2-1 sale from May 19-26. I will have three commercial use packs on sale for just $2 each. Here is the ad that will run in The Studio’s newsletter on Saturday:
But that’s for tomorrow.
I have decided to extend Whimsical Challenge No2 at The Studio until the end of this month. I also have Whimsical Challenges running at The Digichick, and those run from the 1st of the month to the end of the month… I would like to have challenges at both shops run equally.
So if you haven’t participated at The Studio yet, there is extra time left! All details can be found in this thread. If you prefer playing at The Digichick, all info can be found here, same rules apply.
That’s all for now, have a wonderful day!
