Clean Craft Room! Yeah!

Took me 6 hours of crawling, bending, digging, rearranging....but it's done. I hauled out only one bag of trash (I thought it would be more?), gave away one small bag of stuff & rearranged & labeled what was left.

What did I end up with? I can't find anything!! LOL

Will take me a few days to be able to lay my fingers on the items I want to use immediately.  That's OK. My husband is so proud of me.  Isn't that what we live for? LOL

I wanted a clean surface for the new mini album I'm creating.  A Baby Girl themed mini. Because....I'm going to be a granny in January!  Laura Denison's napkin fold design is my inspiration.  I've got the pages all assembled & attached, the front cover is done.
Working on the photo tags now...will post pics when done. 

Will take at least a week cause I'm leaving today for a weekend trip to Kure Beach.  Taking my sketch pad & colored pencils with me AND my camera.  Will get lots of idea's & pictures to make new creations with.

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!!!

DecoArt Stencils-Wall Art

I wanted to create  a nice design on my bathroom wall. I used DecoArt Traditions acrylic paint. Several stencils were used: First I taped off 7x7 squares leaving an inch between them. I painted them White Wash White. It took a couple of coats to cover up the lavender on the wall.  The I started layering using Botanical stencil and Antique Green. I used all 3 designs and just moved the stencil around on each square.  To get a different shade, I added some of the White Wash White to do the 2nd leaf. The third one I used yellow. The flower is from the Garden collection and is Reusable -stick on stencil. I did some of the flowers in Black Plum and some in Yellow. The bird is from the Bee's and Birds stencil. I did two coats of Black Plumb. I ended up sealing it with a coat of Satin Varnish.

 I hope you'll be inspired to paint on your walls!!
