Memory Box Dies with Gelatos


I hope you and your family had a great Christmas!
 
1 wanted to share some Memory Box die cuts today.
Here's a few that I have.  They are so intricate.  They turn out so well!
 Here's a gift bag project I did.  Started by mixing some blue ink with some medium modeling paste.
Smeared over top of a brick wall stencil and allowed to dry overnight.
 Using Faber Castel gelatos, I colored in between the brick with a paintbrush.
 I dabbed some yellow and gold gelatos on most of the flower frame die cut.  Blended with my paintbrush.
 I printed a FREE digital print from Graphic Fairy.
 To adhere my pieces, I used Scrap Dots under the digital image after I fussy cut it.  I used Scotch quick dry glue on the other pieces.
 You can see the dimension of the scrap dots on this side shot.  I love how it raises it as high as you like. 
 I used the gelatos to make my letters. I rubbed the gelatos directly on the foam letters and then dabbed it lightly onto a damp paper towel.  The water helps activate the colors.  I stamped it directly onto the bag.
Here's my finished bag.  I tied some lace and ribbon onto the handle to finish it off.
I hope you like it.  I LOVE how it turned out!

Thanks for stopping by today!! Have a blessed Friday!

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!!
