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!

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…
