Baby Bassinet finished!

All the glue has dried!
The Baby Bassinet is complete!
 
 After I glued all my 3x3 pieces in place, I white washed it with a mixture of burnt umber and cream and water.  I dabbed and wiped until I liked it.
 Once dry, I took a credit card and swiped gesso over all the surfaces.  Wanted an antique/vintage finish.
 Once dry, I took Vintage photo distress ink pad & rubbed the entire pad over top.  Isn't it luscious looking??!!  I LOVE IT!
 On the inside -after the above steps- I also spritzed some white Dylusions ink and some pink shimmer mist.
 I glued lace in two layers all around the entire box.
 Using Wild Orchid flowers, I missed with the pink shimmer and fixed a long embellishment for the top edges.
 Pink tulle gathered up in five sections, wrapped with some string pearls, pink ribbon & the flower wrapped.


I think she's going to love it. I sure do!

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.
