PaperArtsy Clare Lloyd ART

I used 130 lb watercolor paper cut at 6x4.5
Makeup sponge, Vanilla Ice Cream acrylic paint and Yellow Oxide
dabbed and swirled over the whole background.

Stamped background (unity stamp) with black stazon ink.
Stenciled Blue Bonnet acrylic paint with the makeup sponge.  Forgot to take more pictures here!!
Using a makeup sponge, I put paint on a butterfly stamp and stamped in several places. I used Fresco Rose paint.
 Did the same thing using yellow oxide paint and my Unity Joy stamp.  Cut my girl out and glued her on with Scotch quick dry, diecut a butterfly Martha Stewart punch, stamped Survivor (Unity Stamp) and cut with Deckle scissors (edged with rose & black paint using makeup sponge) Add the sentiment with dimensionals.

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!!
