Dragonfly World canvas/Mixed Media


 Mixed Media is my FAVORITE art to do!!
This is the 8x10 canvas is so easy to do!!


My granddaughter started my canvas!  She loves to paint.

She painted 3 different colors. I then splattered some black.

 Here's where the stencil comes in!!  I used Rebecca Baer Dragonfly Fantasy-LG stencil. and Deco Art Traditions paint. When you lift the stencil-the beautiful colors are still left!!  I love it!
Didn't want to cover up any of the design-especially the dragonfly.  But I knew it needed a little something-something.



 This is where my Wild Orchid flowers came in handy.  I also had some trim in my stash. Added a butterfly die cut and viola!  My masterpiece was finished.  I can't wait to find a perfect spot on my wall for this beauty!

 Creating mixed media is so relaxing and you can get really creative.  Rebecca Baer stencils add so much potential!  I hope you're inspired to try your hand at mixed media today!!
If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments.  I will definitely answer them for you!

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!!!

DecoArt Stencils-Wall Art

I wanted to create  a nice design on my bathroom wall. I used DecoArt Traditions acrylic paint. Several stencils were used: First I taped off 7x7 squares leaving an inch between them. I painted them White Wash White. It took a couple of coats to cover up the lavender on the wall.  The I started layering using Botanical stencil and Antique Green. I used all 3 designs and just moved the stencil around on each square.  To get a different shade, I added some of the White Wash White to do the 2nd leaf. The third one I used yellow. The flower is from the Garden collection and is Reusable -stick on stencil. I did some of the flowers in Black Plum and some in Yellow. The bird is from the Bee's and Birds stencil. I did two coats of Black Plumb. I ended up sealing it with a coat of Satin Varnish.

 I hope you'll be inspired to paint on your walls!!
