Unity girl canvas




I have loved Unity stamps for a long time.  Quality and size are a plus with them. 
They have some awesome designers.  So much inspiration.
I did my best to impress!!
 This is an 8x10 canvas. I applied a thin coat of gesso. Applied some versa inks, some red and white acrylic paint. I used a baby wipe to tone down the red-I had way too much.  
I sponged Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink over top of a paper doily in the center.

 For my Angie girl and the flowers, I colored them with prisma pencils.  Cut out an extra set of flowers and used dimensionals to stack them on top of the main image.  Did the same thing with the girl's shirt and skirt.  Really adds character to your piece.  I added some wild orchid flowers where the  paper flowers would have been.

Doing Mixed Media is my favorite technique.  Using Unity stamps to achieve a completed pierce makes it so worthwhile!

Thanks for stopping by and seeing my canvas.

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

Recycling and creating something new has always been one of my favorite things to do.   The square "shadow box" I've been saving for quite some time and now have forgotten what came in it.  It's part of packaging. 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…
