Butterly Scene /Art Journal

Happy Wednesday!! Are you ready for some art journal inspiration??
I used Deco Art Media Fluid Acrylics and Rebecca Baer stencil Enchanted Vine-LG
I always gesso my pages before I start my page.The fluid acrylics are used sparingly.  One drop goes a long way!  I used my fingers to rub it around my page.I laid the stencil down and did additional rubbing of paint in the stencil after freehand sketching the butterfly in. I wanted to be sure the main stenciling was done around the butterfly.

 I painted several coats of the fluid acrylics on the butterly.  The carbon black covers extremely well!
To finish it up-I painted in all the white parts.

 I hope you'll try the stencils in your journals or canvas projects! They have lots of good details.
Thanks for stopping by!

Layered Graduation Mixed Media Cards

Been working on graduation cards. Bassett High School colors are orange and blue.
This first card I cut the 2016 out from black cardstock (using Cricut) and layered the blue behind it. Then added layers and layers of stars (cut with Cricut) For finishing touches-added glitter glue to the stars that were raised with dimensional's.  I used my Cricut for cutting out this boat/wave.  This young man is going on a cruise for his graduation present!!
 I was inspired from Pintrerst for this card design.  I did add some bling though!  I dry embossed the blue and ran the orange strip thru the Big Shot with Swiss Dot folder.

Faith/Hope/Love Mixed Media Canvas

I am super excited to share my first post as a Design Team member for Rebecca Baer!! I've used several of her beautiful stencils on this mixed media canvas along with her specially designed stenciler brush.  I started out with a 16x20 canvas that I paint with lots of white and burnt umber tones. I divided the canvas into rectangles using washi tape and painters tape and painted solid blocks of red and brown.  Then I got out my stencils! Today I've combined four different stencils using the stenciler.
 As I moved the stencils around the canvas, only using sections of some of the stencils, but the whole stencil in some areas, I repeated the main colors. Some area were overlapped with multiple stencils. Some area after the paint had dried, I added some Metallic Lustre in matching colors in random areas.
Rebecca's Stenciler does such an awesome job allowing you get get a crisp image from the stencil.
 Once I was happy with my layout, I used some background stencils from my …
