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!

DecoArt Americana Paint is best for Gelli Prints

I love making gelli prints.  I've used a variety of types of paints.  The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints.  The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate. 
 On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose, Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting them on the plate. This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.  New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.

 This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!!  Except you created it yourself! The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes. I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!
Entering the following challenges:Mojo Monday challenge 464-last card is usi…

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!!!

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.
