Outdoor layout /Blue Fern Studio Challenge

Every month I love Blue Fern's sketch. I also love their products!
 
This month I had the opportunity to participate!
 
I've used their flower/leaf stems on the left side of the picture.  I coated them in gesso, then rubbed Deco Art Metallic Wax lightly on top.  Love the effect.
 
I'm doing the layout on a piece of Masonite. I plan of framing the picture for a friend's Christmas present. I printed the scripture and did the transfer method with gel medium above the picture.
 
Love the rugged look that distressing and ripping gets. I sprayed some blue spritz on the background paper after I had did a watered down coat of gesso over it. There are bits of burlap here and there. A few Wild Orchid Flowers.
 

I'm entering Blue Fern Studio's December sketch challenge.  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!!!

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.
