It's all about you: Whimsical Girl


 First, I covered the canvas with pink tissue paper using mod podge. After it dried good, I rubbed Tim Holtz Antique photo distress ink over most of the canvas with a sponge.
2nd- I drew my girl's face and neck in my sketch book, colored it with Derwent colored pencils and cut it out.
3rd-I laid the face on my canvas to judge how big to cut the dress and wings.  My wings were cut out from a book.  I used Tacky glue to attach my pieces to the canvas.
4th-I painted her hair with brown acrylic paint.
5th-I stamped various words and music notes several places. I stamped the letters LOVE over her head.
6th-I embellished her -running tiny brown and lavender pearls in her hair, some lace around her neck and hair, flowers.
7th-sprayed her with 2 coats of fixitive.

I LOVE how she turned out.  FYI inside the heart I stamped "it's all about you"

My intention is to encourage young girls.  They are growing up with low self esteem thinking they have to be a certain way to receive love and acceptance.

Please pray for our youth.

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!!
