Challenge Day @ Word Art Wednesday

I love doing these scripture challenges.  It's helping to memorize them by meditating and repeating it and waiting for inspiration to make a card/layout/painting.  This week the scripture is:

Be still and know that I am God.  Psalms 46:10

I am rarely quiet & still. So I thought when am I "still"?  Mostly when I'm praying. I'm not real good at drawing hands. I had some new paper that had Chinese lanterns on it. Very colorful.  My mind then went to kimono because when the sleeves are together it looks like they are praying. I drew my kimono lady & did a little silver embossing powder on her kimono.


This week we have another generous sponsor:  Lisa's Altered Art

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!!!

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.
