Paint the Day Away Fundraiser-Success!!

The Southern VA Child Advocacy Center provides services for child victims and their non-offending family members as well as educational prevention initiatives for the entire community. I was honored to hold a fundraiser for them this month.  We started the day at 10AM painting The Grinch. Such a fun and light hearted painting.








 The afternoon class started at 1PM. We painted the Snowman.






We raised money and had fun -huge success!!

Love Snow Flurries Stencils by Rebecca Baer

Image
I love to paint snow scenes.  The Snow Flurries Stencil by Rebecca Baer really captures the delicacy of the snowflake. 
The 16x20 painting below I had already painted by background and went over the 5.75x5.75 Snow Flurries stencil with white paint pretty heavily.  "Church in Winter" by Karen Conner
The Snowman below I used the Snow Flurries stencil (size 5.75x5.75) in the background using glazing medium with white paint so you can't see it until the bottom.  I wanted the bottom design to be darker so I used the glazing medium with the Ultramarine blue paint to stencil the Snow Flurries stencil.  I blended the darker blue into the background.

 This is my last post on Rebecca Baer's design team.  I have so enjoyed using her intricate stencils and especially the brushes!!  I hope you've been inspired to shop with her and find your own stencils to use in your designs! Thanks so much Rebecca for great DT year!!
