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.

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.
