Fall Fun with C'est Magnifique

I love fall colors and when I saw the sketch at C'est Magnifique this month-I knew just what I wanted to do.  These are pictures of my granddaughter last fall at the lake.  The leaves were beautiful.
 I started with a piece of KandCo designer paper. I ran gesso around the edges  of both pages.  I did some stenciling and then used some Ranger Distress embossing in mustard seed for the diamonds.  Love how it turned out.

 
 I used my stampin up leaf die and ink them up with antique photo distress ink.  The two red flowers I stamped and fussy cut with my new set Eclectica from Paper Artsy. I punched some using Tim Holtz paper and distressed them.  Can you tell I like distressing??

Here's my finished layout.  I LOVE IT!  I hope ya'll will jump over to C'est Magnifique BlogSpot and play yourself.  Check out the wonderful sketch.

Have a great 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.
