Cest Magnifique January Sketch

I love participating in their challenges.  I really had fun with this layout.
Started with a plain piece of vanilla 12x12 cardstock.
Using stencils and distress inks I did my background.
I wanted to feature my new grandson, my almost 2yr old granddaughter and of course-the proud grandparents!!
I pulled out some old stickers in my stash that was perfect for the way I feel. F for family, treasure, cherish and grandma.  I look forward to the new year and being the best grandma I can be!

I had some wooden scrolls (almost covered up by the flowers), the flowers are prima. I like them because they are fairly flat and work well on layouts going into albums.  All the pearls are from Wild Orchid Flowers.  The designer paper-one piece is Tim Holtz and the other is DCWV.

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!!!
