Extra! Extra! Sensational Paperboy Plate Released by Artistic Outpost


Today I'm honored to be taking part in the sensational February release for Artistic Outpost featuring amazing vintage photographs of "newsies" that were used as the inspiration for Artistic Outpost's newest release, Paperboy.  I am totally in love with this new plate so get ready because you will be seeing lots of samples from me putting it to use!
This collection features iconic newsboys and girls from the early 1900's when children hocked the latest news on the street corners of America's busiest cities. Also included are a newsprint collage, a megaphone for announcing the latest and greatest, and sentiments professing that "you are the hero in your own story".  The collection is available at Artistic Outpost in both unmounted sheets of red rubber for $14 or mounted on EZ Mount cling foam and pre-cut for you for $22.99. Mounted version comes with a cling card for easy storage.

Please stop by the blogs of the other Artistic Outpost designers to take in their stunning work with this fabulous new set.  


I've been seeing a lot of folded tags lately and decided to use one for my release sample.  Using one of the jumbo manila tags I sell at The Funkie Junkie Boutique, I sponged it heavily with Vintage Photo DI plus blended in a bit of Black Soot DI.  I also made a few ink blots on my craft sheet with Vintage Photo distress stain and blotted them up with the tag to create stain marks.  An aperture was cut with the Styled Labels M&S die and then the panel was stamped, front and back, in Sepia archival ink with the newsprint collage stamp from this plate.

On the front, I created a frame by cutting chipboard with both the Styled Label and the Mini Styled Label M&S dies, ran it through the Riveted Texture Fade, then stained it with Vintage Photo DS.  When dry, I embossed it with Vintage Photo Distress embossing powder for a nice rusty look.
Inside I stamped the little newsboy and sentiments in Jet Black archival and used a stamp from the Loverly London plate, stamped in Sepia Archival ink.  To hold the folded tag closed, I used a hinge clip which I also embossed with Vintage Photo Distress EP plus a couple of gears strung together with Mini Paper Clips.  
I think I have covered all the details, but if you have questions, please feel free to email me or leave a question in the comments below.  Thanks so much for stopping by and for any comments you care to leave!
