Smeared and Smudged Blog Hop

Come join the fun!
I'm hopping with the Smeared and Smudged ladies!
 
The theme is TRANSPARENCY.
 
Craft Attitude makes a fabulous product that is a film that you run thru your printer.
You cut it out and glue it face down onto any project.
As you can see-the results are fabulous!
 
 I purchased this wooden ornament after Christmas last year 70% off. I ripped off the holly and primed the star with Deco Art light primer. I covered the top layer of the star with Deco Art Gold Metallic Wax Finish. Glued my film -printed with Altered Pages Angel Voices collage sheet - on top.  Then I stamped in black stazon in each point of the star. I rubbed a little Deco Art gold Metallic Wax to the Wild Orchid Flower and glued it at the top.  I think the ornament turned out ADORABLE!
 This is one of the little jewelry boxes you get. Recycled they are transformed into a work of art!
I stamped a Christmas greeting onto tissue paper in the box above and glued right onto the box below the film image. That's a nice way to add a stamped image to something.

I hope you've been inspired to recycle and transform some ordinary items into a spectacular piece to use over and over!!
Have fun going to the different blogs to see what type of TRANSPARENTCY the other bloggers have done!!

DecoArt Americana Paint is best for Gelli Prints

I love making gelli prints.  I've used a variety of types of paints.  The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints.  The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate. 
 On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose, Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting them on the plate. This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.  New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.

 This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!!  Except you created it yourself! The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes. I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!
Entering the following challenges:Mojo Monday challenge 464-last card is usi…

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.
