Oopsy Daisy by DecoArt


Happy Monday! 

I've been working on spring and summer ideas.  The Oopsy Daisy stencil from DecoArt was so fun to use to create this spring canvas!

The stencil is 12x12 and therefore works great on a 12x12 canvas!

I used DecoArt Americana paint.

I gesso'd the canvas first. Then painted a solid coat of Bright Yellow. Then I laid the stencil on, painted the flower and leave section in warm white. That helps cover the yellow before you paint them in with the colors you want to use.


 

I first painted a base coat of Pink and Lilac.

I used Royal Fushia, Wild Orchid, and Plum for the flowers to shade and add depth. 

Sour Apple was the color I used on the leaves.

Once done, I doodled with a white and black Posca pen. Then I splattered "dots" around with watered down warm white and black paint.

The final result is very eye catching!  Fun!

Love Snow Flurries Stencils by Rebecca Baer


I love to paint snow scenes.  The Snow Flurries Stencil by Rebecca Baer really captures the delicacy of the snowflake. 


The 16x20 painting below I had already painted by background and went over the 5.75x5.75 Snow Flurries stencil with white paint pretty heavily.

 "Church in Winter" by Karen Conner

The Snowman below I used the Snow Flurries stencil (size 5.75x5.75) in the background using glazing medium with white paint so you can't see it until the bottom.

 I wanted the bottom design to be darker so I used the glazing medium with the Ultramarine blue paint to stencil the Snow Flurries stencil.  I blended the darker blue into the background.



 This is my last post on Rebecca Baer's design team.  I have so enjoyed using her intricate stencils and especially the brushes!!  I hope you've been inspired to shop with her and find your own stencils to use in your designs!

Thanks so much Rebecca for great DT year!!
