Oopsy Daisy by DecoArt


Happy Monday! 

I've been working on spring and summer ideas.  The Oopsy Daisy stencil from DecoArt was so fun to use to create this spring canvas!

The stencil is 12x12 and therefore works great on a 12x12 canvas!

I used DecoArt Americana paint.

I gesso'd the canvas first. Then painted a solid coat of Bright Yellow. Then I laid the stencil on, painted the flower and leave section in warm white. That helps cover the yellow before you paint them in with the colors you want to use.


 

I first painted a base coat of Pink and Lilac.

I used Royal Fushia, Wild Orchid, and Plum for the flowers to shade and add depth. 

Sour Apple was the color I used on the leaves.

Once done, I doodled with a white and black Posca pen. Then I splattered "dots" around with watered down warm white and black paint.

The final result is very eye catching!  Fun!

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!!!
