Vintage Christmas @ MM#257

 Mojo Monday #257-The layers are the key.  I started with a sentiment circle from Nice Crane Designs. I colored in my partridge with pencils, sponged Tim Holtz distress ink (berry & brown) and then taped on top of green designer paper. 
I used 2 Christmas designer papers left over from last year. Added strips of matching green, beige & black in the middle.  I had a beige snowflake. I sponged the same distress inks on it, embossed with SU Iridescent Ice & added to the corners.  Tied a knot in some Raffia & glued it on.

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!!!
