Great Outdoors with Blue Fern Studio

I haven't done a scrapbook page in several weeks!  My pictures are backing up!
The July sketch from Blue Fern Studio's was beckoning me!!
using a sturdy piece of designer paper so I could ink and spray with water was the first place I started.  I tore pieces of cardstock to match my granddaughter's outfit for the layering pieces.  Edged them with gesso to tone down the brightness.  The pink flowers were made using a piece of leftover sprayed cardstock.  The pink blended well with the pics.  I also stenciled some little flowers before applying the blue distress ink -they show thru beautifully.

The tree branch at the top was inspired by Gabriella.  Mine is not as dainty as hers. I made mine with the twist paper that was popular years ago. Rubbed some brown distress ink on top.

The Blue Fern items I used is the Great Outdoors title, the bunny rabbit and the single white flower on a stem.  All 3 were dabbed with Rangers white distress paint.  Did 3 coats.  Wanted them to stand out.

My masterpiece is now hanging in my Art Studio. I like to look at them when I finish before tucking them away in an album!

I'm entering Blue Fern's challenge found -HERE
If you've never used their chipboard-you should!  Very intricate designs.  I have bought several sets and the quality is superb!

Happy Friday everyone!!

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!!
