Hello ArtFoamies fans, Aya here with an art journal page!
1- I heat embossed the unicorn and words stamp using bronze embossing powder
2- I distributed the Dylusion paints into the monoprint plate using the sponge
3- I pressed the galaxy stamp on the monoprint plate then stamped it again in my journal to cover the page entirely
4-I wiped the embossed images using baby wipes then I re-heat-embossed them again
5- I added a touch of pink and turquoise paint to break down the overall purple color
6- I splattered black and gold ink into my page.

Hi all ,
It’s Dani here from the Art by Marlene Promo team.
I wanted to try to play with Art Foamies in a few different ways. I really, never have a set plan when sitting down to art and prefer to go with whatever presents itself in the moment.
However, this video did start with a basic idea to stencil over some book pages and a music sheet... I was really just creating a random background. I then chose 2 art foamies. The large star from the ‘Star Bright’ set and the ‘Flower Geo’. Both are designed by Art by Marlene.
Page 1 used the star foamie as a feature behind a die cut of a meditating girl. It became the focus for the sentiment in the final piece.
The second page shows a foamie used in an interesting way, to change the look of an often used or much loved stencil. I think it really enhanced the background
And the third was of a small tag that was used to pick up the overprints rather than have them end up on waste paper. This would be a quick way to either start another background or create a small quick project on the side whilst doing a larger piece.
I am having so much fun experimenting with Art Foamies. I love the quality if the print that they produce and there are so many different designs. I know you will see many more pages created with them as my art adventures continue.

Hi ArtFoamie Fans!
Thank you for stopping by! It’s been almost a month now, so today I made myself go back to the studio and create after loosing my best friend, the peas to my carrots and my GREATEST cheerleader.
I created a challenge for myself as I had no creative direction. I was to create using just one ArtFoamies Stamp. If you are familiar with my creative style you know I like to use A LOT of stamps at once.
I chose to use Rebekah Meier Designs ~ Broken Blocks
Check out my creative process

Hi ArtFoamies fans, Einat Kessler here to share a fun, easy and creative foam stamp technique!.

Foam stamps are perfect for Gelli printing. They are flexible not too soft but not too hard and they have the perfect texture for picking up paint. All the mono printing techniques are possible: stamping, ghost stamping, double stamping and even shadow stamping. Once you'll get started you won't want to stop!
Check out the step by step video tutorial for all these cool printing techniques. Mix and match your Foam-binations to create custom colored mono printing backgrounds!

Hello ArtFoamies fans! Aya here from the Art By Marlene DT. And I'm happy to share this video tutorial on how to create a card with Yupo paper and alcohol inks.
I Poured alcohol inks into a Yupo paper and created a fun natural design
Then I used Artfoamies circle salad to add texture into my alcohol ink background by using alcohol lift ink
Finally I die cut my background into A2 panel to fit my regular size card and added my sentiment.
Check out the step bu step video tutorial

Hi, it’s Josefine. I was in an experimental mood and wanted to just play a little on a smaller scale. ATCs are perfect for exactly that. At the end, I liked my experiment so much that I gave the ATCs to my husband as his birthday present.
The ATCs didn’t start out very well. But I continued and had my “oh yes, that’s it” moment. Want to know when? Check out the video:
I love how these ATCs turned out! The colors play so well with each other and even the yucky first layers add something special to the entire project.
Shimmer, texture and color – what is better than that? ;)

Hi this is Marsha Valk from Nathalie Kalbach’s Creative Squad!
Colours really are my friends. I love them all dearly, and I could never, ever pick just one favourite!
But as much as I love the entire rainbow, it doesn’t mean all my friends have to come out to play every single time. It’s OK to pick just one for a heart to heart now and then.
I invited a couple of my fabric paint colours for a playdate. I couldn’t find a light, neutral coloured apron to print on, so I got a black one instead. During a short test run on paper, Yellow saw that the black background would shine through and cancelled on me.
I mixed Teal with a bit of White fabric paint and applied it to a StampBuddy. It acts as a stamp pad: gently dab the foam stamp into the foam of the StampBuddy to get an even distribution of paint on the stamp.
Then I started stamping a pattern with the Broadway ArtFoamies stamp onto my pre-washed black 100% cotton apron. I liked what I saw!
Pink was waiting to have a go too, but once we saw the denim-like look of the Teal/White prints, we agreed not to interfere.
I covered the pocket with deli paper to prevent the paint from seeping through while I stamped around it. The plan was to make it look like the pattern continued behind the pocket. It didn’t prevent me from making the stamped design go a bit askew here.
Most fabric paints have to be fixated to make it (machine)washable. The paint I used had to dry for 30 minutes before I could fixate it by ironing the fabric with an iron on medium heat.

Hi dear ArtFoamies fans!
Today I want to share with you a really fun video tutorial on how many combinations can you make with Faom-Binations!
Foam-Binations are foam stamps that have separated parts that you can assemble and create your own stamps! Just assemble the different part anyway you want to build your stamp designs.
If you're asking how many combinations can you make watch the video to find out!

Hi, how are you today? Josefine here and I have a super fun art journal page to share with you. What are the art supplies that you love but always forget that you have them? For me it’s Distress Oxides. That’s why I grabbed a stack of them and decided to only use Oxides for my art journal page.
While I was covering my page with the Oxides, I had a great idea how I can incorporate ArtFoamies without using the ink on them. See for yourself:
How do you like it? I’m so excited about the background and how cute the pig is.
It’s so simple yet so amazing to look at. The colors are bright and pigmented which makes Oxides a great ink for ArtFoamies. Also, ArtFoamies don’t care about the moisture from the water and it doesn’t pearl up as much as it does on red rubber or photo polymer stamps.
Now it’s your turn. Get your loved but forgotten art supplies out and just have fun.

Hello my ArtFoamies FRIENDS!!
It’s been SUPER COLD up here in NH!
and I’m dreaming of SUMMER…..
so I whipped up this pillow to don my Captain Chair
I began my creative process by pulling out my 12 x 12 Gel Press
a few DecoArt Americana paints and a brayer.
I applied a layer of Baby Blue paint to my gel plate,
then I stamped into the paint with the ArtFoamies ~ Botanical stamp.
When complete I centered the pillow cover on the plate and rubbed.
Then I lifted it off. PLEASE NOTE: Dry paint after each layer.
Next, I applied Celery Green to the gel plate and
stamped into the color with ArtFoamies ~ Leaf Vine.
I placed the pillow over about 3” of the color on the plate and rubbed.
I repeated the process around the entire edge of pillow cover.
Next, I applied Celery Green paint directly to the ArtFoamies ~ Leaf Vine
and stamped all over the center (blue area) of the pillow
reapplying paint as necessary!
I then applied Cool White paint directly to ArtFoamies ~ Textures
and stamped 4 images in the center of the pillow cover.
and 4 images in the corners.
I finished off my pillow case with a vintage button.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my creative process.
I can’t wait to put out my chair and pillow
when there is grass on the ground instead of snow!!
