Last artist for Art Auction


Hi! My name's Karen Conner & I''m an 8 year cancer survivor!  
I'm the last artist for the auction.
The reason I do Relay For Life is to make a difference in someone's life.
I was diagnosed with osteosarcoma 1/17/05. Bone cancer in my right bottom jaw.
I spent the next 11 months having chemo treatments and surgery.
During that time I met a lot of kind  and wonderful nurses, doctors, CNAs, got closer to my family and friends and made new friends.

The money that is raised from Relay For Life is used to fund many different programs.
Research for new types of treatments, the Look Good Feel Better program, pays for transportation to and from treatments when needed, housing for family members while patient is in hospital, just to name a few.

I so appreciate my friends for donating their art work for this special auction.  

The bidding will begin tomorrow at 6PM and end Sunday at 6PM

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!!
