Happy Monday!

Wanted to share a couple of new techniques I learned @ my Southern Crafter's class Thursday.
We used all Stampin Up products (except the wax paper!!)
The first one is a resist technique using was paper.  Amazing what we can craft with isn't it!

You can either run a piece of wax paper thru your Big Shot using an embossing folder or just scrunch it up & smooth it back out.  Then you'll put it between a glossy sided paper.   Then you are going to iron it-that's right IRON IT.  To protect your cardstock, we ironed it between a plain piece of paper.  15-20 seconds on each side.

The wax comes off onto the glossy paper.  You then sponge ink -any color. You can think die cut it any shape.  We just used a rectangle piece in the middle of our card front.

 
Do you see all the texture on it?  Love it!



This blue card is really easy.  Ink your silouette stamp really good.  After you press down-lift & press again a little off set from the first one.  Really makes a nice shadow.  We punch 2 holes on the side of the card stock & ran our ribbon thru.

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!!!

DecoArt Stencils-Wall Art

I wanted to create  a nice design on my bathroom wall. I used DecoArt Traditions acrylic paint. Several stencils were used: First I taped off 7x7 squares leaving an inch between them. I painted them White Wash White. It took a couple of coats to cover up the lavender on the wall.  The I started layering using Botanical stencil and Antique Green. I used all 3 designs and just moved the stencil around on each square.  To get a different shade, I added some of the White Wash White to do the 2nd leaf. The third one I used yellow. The flower is from the Garden collection and is Reusable -stick on stencil. I did some of the flowers in Black Plum and some in Yellow. The bird is from the Bee's and Birds stencil. I did two coats of Black Plumb. I ended up sealing it with a coat of Satin Varnish.

 I hope you'll be inspired to paint on your walls!!
