PSC38: Here comes the Sun!

Summer is here! Along with it is the SUN! Sunshine just makes me smile.  I hope you'll join us in our challenge this week.


Your challenge: create a card with a sunny sentiment like: you are my sunshine, wishing you sunny days, you shine, etc. 

The twist: include an image of the sun on your card

 I used my rotary cutter to slice thru several pages at once of DP. That way they would match up.  I drew the outline of the sun rays on orange & fussy cut. I punched my yellow circle & scrunched, distressed & then glued to a white punched circle. I outlined the edges with a white gel pen. Popped up sun with dimensionals.

 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…
