Happy St. Patricks Day

Happy St. Patricks Day from me and Retta!!
 
Why Retta too you may ask?
 
Because she's my new best friend and designer of the adorable leprechaun
I'm featuring in this adorable card!
She also drew the background and designed the digital paper that's the sky!
She's so multi talented!!
This is the inside of my card.  the designer paper I used--------was Retta's too! Digital paper.
I personally have never used digital paper.  This has opened a whole new idea for me.  No storage issues. No running out of your favorite paper. No buying a whole pack of paper and using 3 or 4 designs and the rest you don't like.
Goodness! Where have I been?  When I find something new and wonderful-I feel like a kid on Christmas morning.
But it's St. Patrick's Day!! LOL



I guess you could say I found my pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!  God has blessed me with a new and wonderful friend and artist.  It's my pleasure to share with you all the wonderful things she makes. 
She's opened the world of SVG (cutter files) as well as adding to my stencil stash & designing digital images that I adore.

If you want to browse thru the many stencils she has for sell:

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

DecoArt new Premium Acrylic Mixed Media Paint Home Project

Recycling and creating something new has always been one of my favorite things to do.   The square "shadow box" I've been saving for quite some time and now have forgotten what came in it.  It's part of packaging. The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
