DIY Altered Embrodiery Hoop/Mixed Media

Hi! I'm submitting this altered embroidery hoop for the Wild Orchid Crafts Design Team.
 
I have loved their products for years!!  Have hoarded them just as long! LOL
Recently, I've been using them a lot. 
I especially love their flat back pearls.  You can get different colors & sizes.
The quality of the their flowers is untouchable!
 
They can be altered as well.  The layers will pull apart, you can spray inks on them, add stamen, stickles, etc.
 
Here are some pictures and below is my You Tube video:

The stencils are by my friend Retta.  You can purchase them HERE.

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!!!
