PSC39 Red, White & Blue

Happy July 4th!  I hope your getting to spend the holiday with family & friends.  My Dad is retired from the Air Force-celebrating our freedom and the fact he's still with us is important to me.

This week @ The Perfect Sentiment, 

In honor of Independence Day we are letting you celebrate your freedom by choosing the occasion for your sentiment. You are also allowed to choose the type of project you would like to create! Card, Tag, ATC, Altered Art, etc. 

The twist: use our Nations colors: RED WHITE & BLUE

 I'm constantly fighting to get my card colors to show up right.  The one below is the right color, but not a good angle.
I used an image from our sponsor:  Crafty Sentiments Designs

Crafty Sentiments

I colored her with pencils and deepened the shadows with markers. I love how she turned out. She's a beautiful image.

If you'd like a chance to win a digi image-all you need to do is enter your project to our linky @ Perfect Sentiments Challenge by 7/10/12.  We also vote on the top 3 designs.  Remember: to be in the running you have to following the challenge guidelines.

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!!
