G45 Christmas meets Word Art Wed Scripture

I have been making lots of stuff to sell to others, but nothing for myself!
so today is in honor of ME!
I love the G45 Christmas Paper.
 I took apart a poinsettia spray from dollar tree.  Gesso'd some of it, but wanted one to be bright and stand out.  There's a sheer green bow underneath.  This is a 9x14 canvas.

 Here's the scripture from Word Art Wednesday challenge #107 this week.  I love it!
 There is paper layered with gesso, paint, smooch spritz, blue spray ink. Sponging, stamped some wording.  Then you apply your designs.  To make them POP-you outline them with watered down black paint & smear it.  I love that effect.

My good friend Cassandra has a You tube video on this technique HERE on her blog.

Here is the finished piece in a frame.  I did take some gold rub and buff and smear with my finger to bring in some gold to match the frame.

Hope you like it! I Love it!

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.
