"Dream" Mixed Media Canvas

I found the pattern for the girl on a blog. I saved it to use & now can't find the blog so I can give her credit.

I love making cards & layouts.  I've combined my love of that on my 2nd love-canvas.
I started by painting my canvas with acrylic white.  Then spritzed pink, blue & green mist sprays.  
I used a sponge to soften the edges & blend.
I traced around my pieces of the lady & cut them out. Distressed all the edges.  I cut some petals & made flowers. Found some clear buttons in my stash & added to the middle of them.  Everything was glued with mod podge.
I think it turned out beautifully!

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!!!
