National Scrapbook Blog Hop//PRIZES

My Perfect Sentiments team is hosting a blog hop from today 5/4/12 @ 6PM till Sunday 5/6/12 @ 6PM. There are going to be lots of inspiration/lots of prizes! 

This is a "card" challenge with a twist
My Sentiment is Happy Birthday. Sentiment has to be on front of card.
The twist: use vellum

I'm going to show you the new technique I learned from my Stampin Up Demonstrator. Vicki Cobler

I embossed the flower stamp on the front of the vellum with white embossing powder. The you TURN IT OVER & color it in with markers. It takes a lite hand.  Since the vellum is being backed by white cardstock-you can't even tell it;'s vellum.  It's attached in the four corners with a small adhesive dot. I covered the dot with a half back pearl.
Here's a side view of the embossed image.

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!!
