Meet the generous Artist #3

We only have a few more days till the Art Auction starts to benefit the American Cancer Society.
I'm truly blessed to bring you two more of my sweet friends that have donated.
Karen Letchworth and Wendy Pettifer.

My name is Karen Letchworth, and I am a crafter who LOVES and LIVES FOR the Lord, Jesus Christ.  I am blessed far beyond what I deserve, and give God ALL THE PRAISE AND GLORY for the every good thing in my life. 
 I am currently the owner/administrator of a challenge blog called Word Art Wednesday where everyone is welcome to share their art projects.   I also design for three great craft companies:   The Kraft Outlet, V's Sweet Ideas, and Eureka Stamps. 
 I have been happily married to a wonderful Christian man, and police officer, for over 28 years, and am blessed with three wonderful children who are living their lives for the Lord.  I am blessed, quite simply, because of the goodness of the Lord, and not of my own doing.  I love crafting SO MUCH, and invite you to stop by blog My Cup Runneth Over to say hello. 
 I hope you will all be very generous as you bid on these items; knowing that the money is all going for a very worthy cause, and that God will bless you for giving - according to His holy Word in 2 Corinthians 9:6-8.  Thanks for participating in this special auction.

My name is Wendy - I am 55 years young, live in Hamilton, New Zealand with my husband and our cat “Sparky.”
I work fulltime as a Claims Advisor for a government department.
My creative passions include most anything papercraft related- including cardmaking, rubberstamping, digital stamps, scrapbooking, altered art, art journaling, off the page items, canvases. I also enjoy cross stitch, knitting and I am just starting to make my first sewn quilt.

 I want to thank these ladies from the bottom of my heart for helping me to raise money for the ACS.  
Bidding will begin on 5/17/13 at 6PM and end 5/19/13 at 6PM.  The winning bidder will be notified and directed to pay for their piece directly to my Relay For Life site. Once they notify me the money has been received, the artwork will be mailed to them.

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

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…
