Mixed Media Inspirational Card


Thank you for stopping by today.
 I've combined several challenges into this beautiful card.

My jumping off point was Mono Printing with Paper Artsy. 2016 Topic 9.
Gelli Plate backgrounds are my favorite thing to create!

I love layering several stencils with different colors of acrylic paint. If you let each layer dry before adding the next layer-you can get a really nice background.

My next challenge was to use monochromatic colors with Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge #140.

Craft Stamper Magazine is running anything goes! As long as you use a stamp.  I've used one of my new favorites from Our Daily Bread called On Eagles Wings. 
Our Daily Bread challenge is to use flowers. They were incorporated in my gelli plate background using a stencil.

One of my favorite challenges is weekly with Word Art Wednesday.  This week is anything goes.

 I've also used Deco Art Acrylic paint: Ultramarine Blue, Sapphire Blue and Whispering Turquoise.
Deco Art stencil: French Script.
Plaid stencil: daisies
White Satin Ribbon.

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!!!

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.
