Thank You God for my Mom



This week at  Inspired Stamps the verse for our challenge is
Psalm 92:4

I'm so thankful for my Mom.  She's been a rock for our whole family at one time or another.
I was diagnosed with cancer January 2005. for the next year my Mom was there for me.
She spent the night in the hospital with me during my week of surgery, took me & picked me up every week for my chemo treatments, she encouraged me when I was down, brought me food when I couldn't cook, cleaned me up when I was sick all over myself, held me on the commode when I didn't have the strength, asked questions of the doctors when I couldn't think straight, best of all-she prayed for me-day and night. 
I could have never had a better caregiver in the world.

Both our birthdays is in January.  The picture on my layout is this past weekend at Outback Steak house celebrating my birthday.  I can't wait till 1/31/13-that's when we'll celebrate her birthday!
 
The paper is from stampin up. Presto pattern. It started off white with embossed words.  I rubbed a couple of different distress inks over it so the embossed words would show up.  I stamped and stenciled on top of that. 
Added a few embellishments and was done. I love how it turned out.
Most of all-I love my Mom!

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!!
