Hi everyone! I hope your having a relaxing Sunday like I am!!
I have been wanting to do a bohemian Elephant-if fact I've already tried once.
I just could get the "bohemian" part going.
Then I went thru my stash of DecoArt stencils.
I found this Mandala stencil. On the left of my journal page is the stencil.
On the right side is my Bohemian Elephant using the stencil for the "Bohemian" look!
I LOVE IT!!
I turned the stencil and moved different parts where I thought they'd look the best.
Isn't he beautiful!
I've used DecoArt's Americana multi-surface Satin paints. I had them out for another project, so kept using them for this one. I love the finish you get with them. They can be used on multiple surface types. Plastic, metal, wood, glass, terra cotta, ceramic, paper, canvas and fabric.
Background deep turquoise and coastal waters
Elephant: Eggplant, Iris and Flamingo
Did some extra dots with white gel pen. Some of the black out lini…
Thank you for stopping by today.
I've combined several challenges into this beautiful card.
My jumping off point was Mono Printing with Paper Artsy. 2016 Topic 9.
Gelli Plate backgrounds are my favorite thing to create!
I love layering several stencils with different colors of acrylic paint. If you let each layer dry before adding the next layer-you can get a really nice background.
My next challenge was to use monochromatic colors with Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge #140. Craft Stamper Magazine is running anything goes! As long as you use a stamp. I've used one of my new favorites from Our Daily Bread called On Eagles Wings. Our Daily Bread challenge is to use flowers. They were incorporated in my gelli plate background using a stencil.
One of my favorite challenges is weekly with Word Art Wednesday. This week is anything goes.
I've also used Deco Art Acrylic paint: Ultramarine Blue, Sapphire Blue and Whispering Turquoise.
Deco Art stencil: French Script.
I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it!
Does that happen to you?
I used some new products from Deco Arts.
Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister.
See the tutorial at the end of the post.
Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes??
Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.
