Mixed Media Canvas: I Choose Joy

I have so enjoyed learning how to create mixed media pieces.  This 11x14 canvas has several layers to the background.  I mod podged some torn pieces of designer paper, put some acrylic paint on with a brush, thru a stencil, sponged on the edges.
The heart was free hand cut from a piece of cardboard. I colored it with gesso, gelatos, acrylic paint.
I cut the letter with my cricut and mod podged them into place.
My girl is totally inspired by Cassandra -find her website here

I hope your inspired to try your hand at mixed media!

I'm entering this at Word Art Wednesday Challenge #101-the very first design team I was ever on! They have just celebrated their 100th challenge!  You should join them!

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!!!
