PaperArtsy Challenge


This week at PaperArtsy -France Papillon has a challenge going-Hearts
 This is a 5x7 canvas. I laid some cheesecloth over top the canvas and smeared modeling paste over it.  Pull the cheese cloth off and allow to dry completely.  Then I layered pigment ink over top with a makeup sponge. I did some stamping with stazon black ink with a script stamp.
I printed my sentiment -sprayed with varnish so the ink wouldn't smear-cut it out and adhered to the canvas with gel medium.  Doodle around the edges to blend into your canvas.
 Once the cheese cloth dried I hand cut a heart from it. Layered it with some ribbon, crochet flower and a pearl on top.


Since it's on a flat canvas, it can be displayed on an easel or put in a frame.
I love how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by & please leave a comment telling me what you think!
Have a blessed week.

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!!!
