Scrap That! September Challenge

Scrap That's challenge was to do a layout using a song title.  After listening to many of my CD's I picked Perfect Day by Lady Antebellum.  It talks about how we're busy living in a perfect day & living in the moment.  These pictures of a special day we had with some friends.  I apologize for the photos-I haven't figured out the best way to photograph.
I wanted the grass to look 3D-I drew it in with markers and then added cut paper that I highlighted with markers. 


I created the sun by cutting a circle & then trimming it.  I used dimensional dots under it to give it a 3D look.  The orange, red & purple flowers are chipboard that I painted with acrylic paint.  The centers are of course-buttons.


The 3 little flowers are chipboard inked & then embossed with crystal embossing power.

Stacked Pumpkins Class

Fall is in the air!  The painters were excited to paint this great 16x20 Social Art-networking Design!  The did a fabulous job!  They learned how to use their paintbrushes to create thin lines as well as thick ones.  Dry-brushing technique.  The #2 round brush is perfect for the vines surrounding the bottom of the pumpkins.

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

Happy Birthday with Paper Artsy stamps/masking

I was inspired by the current challenge at Paper Artsy-masking.  I've created this card using a different kind of masking. I brayed paint onto my gelli plate and this pushed the Paper Artsy flower stamps into the paint. Then I pulled the print. Wow!! The stamp pulled the paint off creating a negative space. I hightlighted the stamps with watercolor pencils. Did some additional stamping with Paper Artsy vine, then stamped The Happy Birthday sentiment from Stampin Up.  Added 3 die cut flowers on top with dimensional s to finish the card. I LOVE how it turned out!! I hope this inspires you!!!
