Thanksgiving art with Rebecca Baer Stencil




Happy Labor Day!! 

Fall is here!  I am so ready! I love the colors of fall, the weather, pumpkin spice mix-I love it all!

Today I'm sharing with you a 5x7 canvas I quickly made with Rebecca Baer stencil and DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paint.  It's so easy -but makes a great statement!


Here's what your going to learn how to make!!


I started with a coat of Autumn Red. Dry thoroughly.

 Next using a palette knife, I applied a coat of Rebecca Baer's Stenciling Gel 

over top RB Honeycomb Stencil  -I used the 5.75x5.75, but they come in 3 different sizes.

 It's white when you put it on, but allow it to dry overnight and this is the result!  Like magic!!

 Then I painted a coat of DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paint Moon Yellow. Wipe it off with baby wipe. Apply another coat and wipe off.  The stencil gel is a resist to the top coat of paint. Everywhere you've applied the gel is going to show the first layer of paint used.

 This I added some embellishments and voila!  My finished product.  This 5x7 canvas will fit in a 5x7 frame -just take the glass out and display for all to enjoy.


 I hope this will inspire you to make some fall themed decorations for your home!

Happy Fall Y'all!!

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!!!
