Gelli Plate and DecoArt = AMAZING CARD

DecoArt Owl Stencil = FUN!

I used Americana Paint, gelli plate to create my base.
Roll on a layer of Milk Chocolate-lay the stencil in place.

immediately peel your stencil off and lay it down & clean off. pic #2
Allow to completely dry before applying the next color.
 Roll on Light Buttermilk.  Lay your cardstock on top & rub really good. When you pull your print-it's already dry!
 I "embellished" the owl by adding some details with DecoArt Paper Effects.
They come with a fine tip to add to the regular tip on the bottle. Will give you a really fine line. Went around the edges and his eyes with Black Pearl.  Used Golden Pearl around the circles in his stomach. (funny how I'm identifying the owl as a male!!)  The dots in the center of his eye is White Pearl. Allow to dry & then add your embellishments.

Turned out to be a beautiful card!  I even used DecoArt Metallics on the black circle and sentiment. Using my finger, I rubbed some Orange Flicker.

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!

DecoArt new Premium Acrylic Mixed Media Paint Home Project

Recycling and creating something new has always been one of my favorite things to do.   The square "shadow box" I've been saving for quite some time and now have forgotten what came in it.  It's part of packaging. The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
