Goodness and Mercy

Gelli Plate backgrounds are my favorite!  Creating a background is one of my favorite things to do! Then you can match your stamps and sentiments and colors to whatever you create!

I have used the free Word Art from Karen M at Word Art Wednesday.
Word Art Wednesday Challenge #342-#343-Anything Goes
Craft Stamper Magazine July Challenge-Anything goes

Used DecoArt Acrylic paints for the background gelli plate design.
Used Derwent Intense Watercolor pencils for the Unity Stamp Image.

Poppies and Vineyard Acrylic Painting

This is one of the largest canvases I've ever painted!! 40x30.  Wow!
It has taken me a couple of months working on it here and there. Layering.
But I LOVE how it turned out.
I used DecoArt new Premium Acrylics.
The pigment in this line of acrylics is amazing! It layers beautifully. 

Americana Premium Acrylics

Americana Premium Acrylics

Medium-bodied paint that offers excellent coverage from its light-fast, heavily-pigmented formula. The special formula works well on canvas and dries to a satin finish. The colors are intermixable, allowing for a wide range of options

Sparkle and Shine Girls Decor

I have been creating some decor for a young lady's room.
I have used my Deco Art supplies and lots of rhinestones!!

This 12x12 canvas was made using Mandala stencil and Spiced pink Americana Acrylic paint.  I then sealed it with DecoArt Gloss Spray.

This 14x24 canvas was my favorite to do.  I painted it solid Milk Chocolate Brown and allowed to dry. Came back with Spiced Pink and White. Did the brush strokes from the center out.  

Then out came the Rhinestones!! Oh my!  Thankfully I some larger one that helped, although the smaller ones look best in the curves.  Glossy accents will guarantee they won't fall off.

I measured and taped off this 16x20 canvas. Did Spiced Pink and Silver. Once dry, I drew the words on first with a white charcoal pencil then traced with Black Marker.

I hope these easy ideas will inspire you to create some of your own.  You can get some great inspiration on Google images or Pinterest.

Spring Flowers using Unity Stamps

It's spring and I'm ready to do some colorful cards using some of my flower stamps!  This is a stamp from Unity April Kit of the Month. 

I used Tim Holtz distress inks to stamp the flowers around the edges of my cardstock. Then randomly colored them in with matching colored pencils.  You can't tell it from the picture, but I randomly put some glue on the petals and sprinkled DecoArt glamor dust on top. 

Made the card sparkle and shine!

Eclipse Technique Card

I just found out about this new technique called Eclipse! When you cut out your letters or shapes, I backed them with the same color cardstock that the background is layered on, slightly offset. Then, add dimensionals to the back and pop them up. Easy!!

I used Unity Stamp for the image.  I stamped that first, then did the cutting out. I LOVE this new technique!!

DecoArt stencil/Gelli Plate cards Fairies

These cards are a result of DecoArt Stencils on a Gelli Plate.
You can use regular cardstock.  The paint adheres really well and you can use distress inks right over top of it. As you can see-it turned out great!  Add some sparkle and shine with glossy accents.

Fairies (8"x8")

 I've added glossy accents to the butterfly and the outlines of her wings and then sprinkled with Glamour Dust.
