All Natural layout with Royal Inspirations stencils by Retta

I kept hearing about the Blue Fern Studio's wooden embellishments.  I finally was able to order some.
I love them!  The detail of the cuts are amazing.  I've used several in this layout.
 
The All Natural title, the butterfly, the leaves and the long flower on the left side of the picture.
 
After applying gesso, I colored all but the title with gelato's.  It worked really well.
 The other great thing's I'm showcasing are the SVG files my good friend Retta has designed.   She's Royal Inspirations by Retta. She also makes stencils. Find some of her creations at here.http://ididitcreations.com/club/

The "love you" and the doily under the corner of the picture are part of one SVG file that she has for a Mother's Day card!  There are 7 or 8 pieces to this file.  As you can see-they are easily used for other things.
 The flowers are from Wild Orchid Flowers.  I also attached a couple of metal pieces from a haul I received from Alicia Cabral.

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!!
