Meet the generous Artist #3

We only have a few more days till the Art Auction starts to benefit the American Cancer Society.
I'm truly blessed to bring you two more of my sweet friends that have donated.
Karen Letchworth and Wendy Pettifer.

My name is Karen Letchworth, and I am a crafter who LOVES and LIVES FOR the Lord, Jesus Christ.  I am blessed far beyond what I deserve, and give God ALL THE PRAISE AND GLORY for the every good thing in my life. 
 I am currently the owner/administrator of a challenge blog called Word Art Wednesday where everyone is welcome to share their art projects.   I also design for three great craft companies:   The Kraft Outlet, V's Sweet Ideas, and Eureka Stamps. 
 I have been happily married to a wonderful Christian man, and police officer, for over 28 years, and am blessed with three wonderful children who are living their lives for the Lord.  I am blessed, quite simply, because of the goodness of the Lord, and not of my own doing.  I love crafting SO MUCH, and invite you to stop by blog My Cup Runneth Over to say hello. 
 I hope you will all be very generous as you bid on these items; knowing that the money is all going for a very worthy cause, and that God will bless you for giving - according to His holy Word in 2 Corinthians 9:6-8.  Thanks for participating in this special auction.

My name is Wendy - I am 55 years young, live in Hamilton, New Zealand with my husband and our cat “Sparky.”
I work fulltime as a Claims Advisor for a government department.
My creative passions include most anything papercraft related- including cardmaking, rubberstamping, digital stamps, scrapbooking, altered art, art journaling, off the page items, canvases. I also enjoy cross stitch, knitting and I am just starting to make my first sewn quilt.

 I want to thank these ladies from the bottom of my heart for helping me to raise money for the ACS.  
Bidding will begin on 5/17/13 at 6PM and end 5/19/13 at 6PM.  The winning bidder will be notified and directed to pay for their piece directly to my Relay For Life site. Once they notify me the money has been received, the artwork will be mailed to them.

DecoArt Americana Paint is best for Gelli Prints

I love making gelli prints.  I've used a variety of types of paints.  The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints.  The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate. 
 On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose, Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting them on the plate. This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.  New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.

 This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!!  Except you created it yourself! The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes. I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!
Entering the following challenges:Mojo Monday challenge 464-last card is usi…

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!!!

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.
