Blessed -aren't we all?



Fall is almost here! I'll be glad to have cooler temps!
My gelli plate background was created using DecoArt Acrylic paint.

I've pulled out my stampin up leaf die to enter the following challenges:

The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge-love the fall colors and I attempted to make the wooden background and the circle on the front of the challenge photo. 

Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #124 showing fall colors and ribbon.

Word Art Wednesday challenge #199 using free wordart scripture 


 I started with my gelli plate.  I used a green and pressed my wood grain embossing folder into it, then added Die for the sentiment layer. Ran the fall color cardstock with a Stampin Up leave die and cut them out. Used Distress ink to highlight the edges and "veins:" Ribbon for the final touches!  I LOVE fall colors and will be sending this to a friend that just gotten home from rehab. An encouraging card for anytime of the year.  The sentiment is FREE from Word Art Wednesday blog.

I hope you love it as much as I do!  Have a blessed day!

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!!!
