The new release of ARTHUR AVENUE


As you can see below I have been having lots of fun with the new Arthur Avenue sets from Vera Lane Studio

There are four new digistamp sets and a collage sheet! HUGE release today! And all of them are at amazing prices I must say! This new line by Janet has really inspired me to step outside my norm and try new mediums and I really think I have found my true style! The rest of the Vera Lane Design Team and I will be posting throughout the day with makes from the new Arthur Avenue release over on the Vera Lane Studio Digistamps Facebook Group. You should come join in the fun! Below are the direct links to the new sets in the VLS Etsy store.

I have added images from the Collage sheet to my planner. I also made ATCs, postcards, greeting cards and a few art journal layouts with each of the digistamp sets. There are several different mediums I used in these projects such as: alcohol markers, Inktense pencils, FOILING (tutorial coming soon), Neocolor ii, Polychromos & Prismacolor colored pencils, matte medium, Brea Reese acrylic paints, watercolor, paint and gel pens. 

The collage sheet is awesome for those last minute birthday cards, planner decor, mixed media collage and for those that can’t see quite as well as they used to. 

I hope you enjoy this new line as much as I do! Oh! There’s more coming next month!!! ssshhhh .Would love to hear your feedback! Until next time.. go make some awesome art!!
