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.
blot - pic #1
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!

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.
