Multi Media Mini Album Cover

 I use school glue stick to glue my 5x6 chipboard to my paper.  This paper came from a kit I bought on my cruise.  I still like to add a lot of my own spin.
 I roll my brayer over top to make sure the glue is evenly distributed & make sure it's sticking.; Then cut each corner off because you are going to wrap the chipboard just like a present.
 I had used my digital image on regular white cardstock.  I printed two & masked the surfboards. I stamped my waves & colored them with my aqua painter.  Then I combined water to some acrylic blue paint & sponged the sky masking them with hand cut clouds.  I wanted a different blue than my marker.
 I stamped my boards & sand using black stazon.  I colored them using multi layers of colored pencils: light orange, dark orange, yellow, white, blue.  I usually finish them off scrubbing them with the white one -it really helps combine the colors. Then I go back with the darkest color & redefine the outline.
To give them more Pizzaz I embossed the surfboards with clear embossing powder, the star fish with gold embossing powder.  
 I attached my surfboards with small zots.  My Sentiment is a clear sticker that I attached to a piece of blue cardstock & popped up with dimensionals.
Here's my finished project!  It's the front cover of my new mini album I'm working on!

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…
