Whimsey girl: Beauty within

Whimsey

I'm not sure why I like to do faces, but I do. In this one I was trying to capture the eyes. She has a haunting look doesn't she? Almost sad. 

Girls today are pressured into thinking they have to look a certain way.  I was made fun of in school growing up-1st because I wore glasses, then because I was over weight. I wish I could take the hurt away from young people.  I wish they could really understand they are uniquely made by God-and he loves them just as they are!

I love using DecoArt products.  In this piece, I used the Traditions paint. Heavy body. Coverage is excellent.  After it was done, it was a little flat looking and I added Metallic Lustre to her hair and shirt. DecoArt brushes are really great tools too!

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!!!
