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!

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.

DecoArt Americana Paint is best for Gelli Prints

I love making gelli prints.  I've used a variety of types of paints.  The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints.  The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate. 
 On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose, Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting them on the plate. This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.  New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.

 This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!!  Except you created it yourself! The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes. I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!
