Chellenge using WOOD

 
I was totally inspired by the challenge going on at Eclectic Paperie.
The challenge is to use wood.
I have a wooden toilet paper holder.  Have had it for years!  Bought from ABC Distributors.  Has 4 wooden panels for the front that you can change out depending on the season of the year.
Do you have one?  Know what I'm talking about?
 
Been thinking for a long time I needed to update at least one panel.  This challenge was the perfect incentive!
 
I covered it in black gesso first.
 White it was drying I stamped colored and cut out some images from Inspired Stamps.
 I used modeling paste and some stencils, some pigment inks and some stamps.  I couldn't get the pigment ink to dry-so I embossed using sparkle embossing powder.
 This stencil above is made by my friend Retta.  Called carpet of flowers.  The one below is one I had in my stash.  As you can see I used a white pen to go around my images.  Really made them POP!

 It's so tall-I couldn't get one picture of it!! Had to divide into two.  I LOVE how it turned out!!

Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave a comment and let me know what you think!

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!!!
