Week 60 Wild Orchid Challenge

I started with a light coat of gesso on my 8x10 canvas, painted it with acyrlic paint: a golden yellow color, rubbed on brown, a little red, copper & yellow liquid pearls.  Trying to get a rich color.  I added some designer paper from DCWV Haberdash.
The tulle is from Stampin up-Crumb Cake.
Flowers:  Wild Orchid flowers
Bird-die cut with Tim Holtz die.

I'm entering Wild Orchid Challenge found Here:

I love framing quotes and scripture.  It's so inspiring to have hanging where you can see it.

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!!!
