April Guest Designer: Stase Collins

Our Guest Designer for April has been dazzling us with her creative creations by mixing and matching Vera Lane Studio images to create a wonky nursery rhyme book.  We've asked Stase to share a little bit about herself:

I am a 70 something year old who lives in the UK. I have been crafting for approximately the last 12 years and enjoy many types of craft. Mixed media, upcycling, making albums and cards to name just a few.
My latest obsession is the quirky and whimsical digital stamps from Vera Lane Studios, which I enjoy playing and having fun with. It keeps the brain active!!

Here are just three pages from Stase's book.  Please join us this month so you can view more of Stase's creations.  We have an active ATC swap also taking place.  If you are not part of our FaceBook community and like working with digi stamps look us up!

March Guest Designer : Sylvia Meppen-Rentenaar

Please welcome Sylvia Meppen-Rentenaar to Vera Lane Designers!

We took notice of Slyvia's work and asked for her to be a guest designer.  She wowed us with frequent and colorful mixed-media works using Vera Lane Studio images in her personal style.  We want to bring you more of her creations  as Sylvia guests for us this month!

Sylvia's work is fun with a little sass. She loves to get inky and messy with her mixes of media.  Her organization skills allows her to stay in a focused direction to create a unified piece although she can get messy in the process!

Sylvia would like you to know a little bit about herself:

My name is Sylvia. I am 41 years old. I am married, and I have 2 beautiful daughters.
I live in a small village in the Netherlands.
I have been creative since childhood.
I also worked a long time on a day care for the mentally handicapped, where I c
ould use my creativity well.

Unfortunately, I have been disapproved on medical grounds.
I spend my time with my children and husband, the household and of course being creative.
For me, being creative is a therapy that I like to do and apply in my daily life.

Please stop by and check out the designer teams creations for March and Sylvia's weekly posts!

February Guest Designer: "Tasha" Nez

Vera Lane Studio welcomes Tasha Nez to guest design for the month of February.  Tasha has been a fan of Vera Lane Studio and likes the quirkiness of our characters. Her design strengths are creative use of color, composition, mixed-media  techniques, and of course, her imagination.

Tasha has shared her whimsical works on our FB fan site.  Here are two examples of her creativity using Vera Lane Studio images.

Tasha would like to share a little bit about herself:

I am a mixed media artist, student, and amateur photographer from sunny New Mexico. I am currently studying to receive
my Associate of Science for Human Services and have a passion to help others. My other passion, of course, is art and making
fun projects to share with others. I first started out making artist trading cards with sharpie markers as my only medium. It
wasn’t until I saw mixed media artists and their stunning work that I ventured out of my comfort zone. It is my hope that I
can inspire others to look beyond the obvious and make their worlds as colorful as they can be. 

Please look for Tasha this month on our FB page along with the creations from our wonderful design team.  You can find Tasha's art on  Instagram: @pacotacorox  .

Today we released our 15 image value bundle "Circles and Stems".  These images download in both png and jpg files.  The possibilities are endless with these graphic images to incorporate into your art journals, planners and all paper craft projects. The resize and distort to give you hundreds of variations -- link together to create a header for stationery or note cards.  Use as backgrounds.  Add a monogram.

Next week we will debut our Arthur Avenue collections.  These images are bright and bold, quirky and wonky!  Our team is having a blast working with the images and we are sure you will too.  In addition to the launch we will now be offering limited editions of collage sheets.  These sheets have multiple images pre-colored. Cut and paste for an easy craft fix or enhance with a touch of colored pencil or markers to blend into your art journaling and collages.

We've decided to add a collage sheet for the circle and stem set to introduce you to our new collage elements section. There are 27 colored images in this PDF file. For our limited license fee you may download repeatedly for your personal use.
