Dream Catcher with DecoArt Stencils

Stencils have totally changed how I create! 🎨

They add dimension and interest to backgrounds and main ideas.

Dream Catchers are so popular and in my rendition, I've created mine using DecoArt Mandala 12x12 stencil.  I used only the center of the stencil for my dream catcher.


 Here's a close up of the background stencil I used. DecoArt Spirited 6x9 I used only the butterfly and the word dream.

 Using DecoArt products to enhance your paintings just make sense!  I hope you'll shop on their website.  I used a variety of their Americana paints.

Dark Plum, Buttermilk,  yellow, Orange, Blue, burnt umber, carbon black.

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.
