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.

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!!
