Cards Galore 2

Fall is here!  Wanted to make some card to reflect the beautiful colors our Lord provides during this season.  Chocolate Chip has become one of my favorite colors.  It goes with so many other colors.  Been tring to figure out what to do with all my scraps???  Do you have a millon like me?  I took out one of my scrap boxes & went to town!  Most everything you see here had already been cut-embossed-stamped.  I'm in love with distressing -so I did distress alot of it while working on them.

This stampin up stamp set is one of my favorites.  I used colored pencils & blender to fill it in.

Doesn't this antique lace make this card?  I so love it!

Extremely simple

I distressed a pale yellow ribbon on this one to match the distress look.

I had a small scrap of Tim Holtz paper that I added to this one.  I forgot to mention the chocolate chip paper I embossed with the swiss dot from stampin up.

Love, love, love vintage buttons!  Founds a little store uptown Rocky Mount that has them in jars for a nickle a piece!

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!

DecoArt new Premium Acrylic Mixed Media Paint Home Project

Recycling and creating something new has always been one of my favorite things to do.   The square "shadow box" I've been saving for quite some time and now have forgotten what came in it.  It's part of packaging. The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
