Grandparents Day Fun!

How many times do you start a project, get stumped how to finish, pick it back up months from then and viola! Finished!  As soon as I purchased these 8x8 canvases, I knew I wanted to do a Boeckh technique on them.  But that's when my inspiration ran out.  

I've recently had some new pictures of my grandchildren developed and today being Grandparents day....I saw those canvas on the edge of my desk and I suddenly knew what I wanted to do!

I've been creating a Mini Album with this new paper pack called Have Faith by Echo Park.  I had some scraps and stickers left over.  Added some Prima flowers, and was done.


I'm entering Word Art Wednesday Challenge #402-#403 Anything Goes.

CAS Easy Peasy

When I saw the challenge at Simon Says this week, I knew I was going to participate.  Clean and Simple hasn't always been easy for me.  I want to add layers and layers!!
Using their stamp set I inked it with markers. Used blenders with leftover distress ink to "color" it. Was done in 5 minutes!!!  Love how it turned out!

Our Strength is from the Lord

Using my new Penny Black stamp set and die.  LOVE them!
Went thru my stash of gelli prints and then added details on top.

These encouraging words go well with the scripture from Word Art Wednesday this week.

We all are going thru trials, but everything we have, including our strength, comes for the Lord.  Be encouraged that our Lord knows our circumstances and is carrying us thru!

Bee and Clover Paint Class, Social Artnetworking

Oh my! I LOVE this design!!
I had never painted it until this group of ladies picked it.  Once I painted it, I LOVED it!!
The Bee is amazing!!  Fur and all.

All the ladies did excellent!
Was an easy background and easy flowers with lots of dabbing.
The main details that were tricky was the bee legs and wings.

Unity Stamps Several ways

Hi and thanks for stopping by!
I did several cards today using Unity Stamps.

I always need some extras.  


Acrylic watercolor background painting

They picked out their own picture to paint.  Was an easy one to draw for them.  

I wanted to do a watercolor technique for the background.  Worked out well for my practice piece, but we didn't have any outlets to plug in dryers at the restaurant when the group got together.  We did the best we could-still got some awesome effects.

We used Social Art Acrylic paints.

Painted Shells with Media Fluid Acrylic by Decoart

While at the beach, I picked up some nice shells.  When they are on the beach and wet, they look beautiful, then when you get them home, several of them looked grey.  I wanted to create something so I could see the shells.  I had this big C that I've been wanting to decorate, so I thought I'd put the shells on it.  But, I wanted some color.  I broke out my Media Fluid Acrylic paints. Stuck with Cadmium Red, Orange and Yellow.

I think it turned out great!  

The Decoart Media Fluid paints covered the shells with one coat. It dried quickly making this project simple and fast. I hot glued the shells on and put a finishing coat of Satin varnish.
