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!!

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!
