Gelli plate cards with DecoArt stencils and paint.


If you follow my blog much, you know how much I love my gelli plate!! 

DecoArt Americana Acrylic paint is my paint of choice for my gelli plate.

I used DecoArt stencils -doily and dots for the background.

Then stenciled on the girl and stars and the numbers. The sun and sentiment are stamps.


 I will tell you, the secret the making the people pop-is shading one side. Ground your design by making a landing space for them to be standing on.


 I hope you'll check out the excellent line of stencils and paints that DecoArt sell.

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!!!
