Hog Heaven!

I'm in Richmond, VA visiting my almost 2 week old grand baby girl-Brianna!
Talk about getting some photos to crop & scrapbook!!  Oh my!  My new camera holds a little over 2000 pics!  Yes-I'll probably use them all!  She's so gorgeous.  She makes the cutest faces. 

She's so petite & her facial features are so pronounced. She's already got loads of character.
Am I gushing??  I hope so!  

The 2nd wonderful thing about Richmond is the craft stores!!!!  They have them all-in fact several of each one!

I visited Michael's yesterday.  They had spellbinders buy one & get one 1/2 price.  You know I had to get some-my first ones!!  Of course, their stock was depleted a little, but I got the Fleur De Lis & the Scalloped button oval one.  They still had lots of Christmas stuff & some was 80% off!!  I got some stickers and some stamps for 20cents!  All in all it was a great haul.


Plan on hitting Hobby Lobby later today!

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!!!
