Santa mixed media canvas

I have loved making Christmas items.  This is a flat canvas board. Size 9x11.
The background was started with Liquitex matte medium and ripped book page pieces.
I sprayed blue inks around the edges, then brushed acrylic gesso on the inside. 
I glued punched snowflakes (SU punch)-used blue and grey designer papers.
I free hand drew the santa on piece of designer paper and cut him out. Glued him on.
Painted him with Traditions paint.
Did some stenciling over top of him.

 Punched two holes in the top and threaded some satin ribbon to hang it with.

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!!!
