Giveaway Alert!!!! Fun Friday!!


I, it's Karen Conner here today!
Friday's are always the best day of the week. Last day to work. First start to the weekend.
What can be more fun?? Right?
 
I've recently lost my job and had an excessive amount of business cards laying around.
I decided to make something with them!
 
I glued them face to face and had enough to make little booklets.
I made a total of 7 booklets.
 
After they had dried, I laid them out on scratch paper and using a brayer, I laid the acrylic paint onto the surface with the brayer.  You get different shades and different amounts-that's ok.
I used a blend of light green, yellow and vanilla.
 
I let it dry really well.
They I stamped some dots here and there with momento ink.
 
They I embossed with glitter some stamped flowers.  Just stamped them randomly on one side only.
I kept one side with just the paint so I could add my scriptures to them.
I've been doing a bible study call "Living so that" by Wendy Blight.  It was terrific!  I'll be sending her one and one to P31 readers.  Thought I'd give one away here on our blog as well.  Please leave me your email in the comment section if your interested in receiving one of these handy little books.

You can purchase glue, acrylic paints, embossing pads and inks, flowers and all the supplies I've used to make my little books.  I put them together with my Cinch.  They turned out really cute!!

Thanks for stopping by today!

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!!!

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.
