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!!!

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

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.
