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!

Stamp your Encouragement

One of the new stamps was this butterfly. The kit came with the solid image and the detailed image.   I love to create my backgrounds with stencils.  The flower is a stencil from DecoArt called Succulent. I just held it where I wanted it and sponged distress inks. I have the new Tim Holtz Tonic Stamp Platform.  I love how you can stamp your image twice! You get a clear image every time!! I stamped the solid butterfly with Mustard distress ink.  Lined the detailed butterfly up with stamped overtop with Barn Door red. 
I used some colored cardstock to mat my sentiment and the card base. Really made the colors pop!!!

I'm entering Craft Stamper challenge-Anything Goes

The Mixed Media Challenge #39-Photo Inspiration:  I was inspired by the flowers.  The end of summer is here. The colors make me happy!!
