OWSE Arch Swap February



I've been participating in a monthly arch swap at OWSE.
For February we were to incorporate a favorite song.
 Above is the arch I created.  I started with cream cardstock. Did some stamping and inking.
Then I layered some diecuts (flower and flourish then the heart)
I wrote the lyrics to the song around the edge of the heart.  In the middle I stamped a heart and filled it in with Tattered Rose stickles.  Add some pearls top & bottom and a pink bow.


 This is the arch I received from my partner-Amberlee.
Looks as if there are some layers of tissue paper.  Some washi tape with music notes.  The flower is 3-4 layers with gold glitter or stickles and a purple rhinestone in the center.  Lace at the bottom.

She typed the lyrics & posted them on the back:

Never knew I could feel like this
Like I'd never seen the sky before.
Want to vanish inside your kiss,
Everyday I love you more and more...

Come What May, Come What May
I will love you until my dying day!

It's fun seeing what other people's styles are. When the year is done I'll have enough to make an album.

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!

DecoArt new Premium Acrylic Mixed Media Paint Home Project

Recycling and creating something new has always been one of my favorite things to do.   The square "shadow box" I've been saving for quite some time and now have forgotten what came in it.  It's part of packaging. The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
