Altered Shoebox-Horses Rule!


This is the top of the box. The horse is a digital image from Stamp N Doodle.
I adhered everything except the die cut flowers with Liquitex matt medium.
 This is one side-the other side matches. I fussy cut the daisy designer paper (from stash), used flower punch for the burgundy red flowers (paper is thick and textured),

the handmade flowers were 3 layers of die cut flowers.  After you cut them, spritz them with water and scrunch them up tight-allow to dry.  Gently open them up, distress the edges and layer with hot glue.  I added a flat back pearl to the center. 
I used thick designer paper by Kraft.  Measured top and bottom.  Stamped images using Black Archival Ink and colored them with Prisma colored pencils.

Stamp set from Mark's Finest Paper.

I also covered the inside with light designer paper.

You can get similar supplies in our store Outlaw Women Scrapbook Emporium.  Everything is discounted 20-25% EVERY DAY!!

Almost anything can be upcycled.  This box is for a nine year old girl that loves horses.
I hope this encourages you to step outside the BOX  and create something new out of something old!

Have a blessed Friday

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!!!

DecoArt Stencils-Wall Art

I wanted to create  a nice design on my bathroom wall. I used DecoArt Traditions acrylic paint. Several stencils were used: First I taped off 7x7 squares leaving an inch between them. I painted them White Wash White. It took a couple of coats to cover up the lavender on the wall.  The I started layering using Botanical stencil and Antique Green. I used all 3 designs and just moved the stencil around on each square.  To get a different shade, I added some of the White Wash White to do the 2nd leaf. The third one I used yellow. The flower is from the Garden collection and is Reusable -stick on stencil. I did some of the flowers in Black Plum and some in Yellow. The bird is from the Bee's and Birds stencil. I did two coats of Black Plumb. I ended up sealing it with a coat of Satin Varnish.

 I hope you'll be inspired to paint on your walls!!
