The Blue Door using DecoArt paint and pattern


DecoArt Social Art Networking - have fun painting a great picture when you've never even painted!  That's what we did last Friday.   Using one of the designs from Social Art Networking, I taught the techniques that they used to create a great painting anyone would be proud to have hanging on their wall! 


 We use all DecoArt Americana paints. They followed my lead and voila' this is what they created!! I'm so proud of each one!!

 Here's my finished one.  It's called The Blue Door.

 If you are interested in hosting a class-let me know! I will be glad to come to your house and we'll have some fun creating!

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!!!
