Unity Friends with Flair & OWSE



This started life as a tree. LOL
Then became cardboard.
Then became a wall hanging!
 I've used a variety of mediums. acrylic paint, distress ink, fabric paint, modeling paste, rub and buff, colored pencils.  Embellishments: button, twine, raffia, lace.

My image is from UNITY STAMP CO.  Her name is Angie girl and I love her!
I'll be entering Friends with Flair which they host every Friday.
My other main love is Crafting with OWSE
We have a art technique chat every Wednesday night.  I'll be teaching the technique every other week.  It's a great group of women.  I have learned so much!

Sentimental Sundays #152 is doing  Mixed Media this week!! 

I also want to give a huge shout out to Word Art Wednesday.  Challenge #78 is anything goes this week!  Go see what those talented ladies have done!

 I hope your enjoying your Friday!  I'm vacationing in my craft studio!! Loving it!

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!!
