She Art Collage on Canvas

I'm so inspired by the She Art that Christy Tomlinson creates.
Here's my attempt.
The background starts with ripped tissue paper.  I love the texture and dimension it gives.
They you do a variety of spray inks on top, then I sprayed using some stencils.  I even did some dabbing around with some bubble wrap before and after I added my hand cut houses and girl.
 I roughly drew the outline of the girl on one piece of designer paper, then I cut pieces of laces and trims and other colors of paper and added it to her.  Hot glue works the best for me on adding the trims and rosette.
 The houses are really fun to make!  I just mixed matched some of the designer papers and used a glue stick to put them together.  Once I glued them onto the canvas using matte medium, I used a black pitt pen to outline them.
 The die cuts are from my stash and were added with hot glue.
I printed the sentiment out on my computer, used matte medium to adhere to the canvas, then outlined with my black pitt pen.

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!!
