Chellenge using WOOD

 
I was totally inspired by the challenge going on at Eclectic Paperie.
The challenge is to use wood.
I have a wooden toilet paper holder.  Have had it for years!  Bought from ABC Distributors.  Has 4 wooden panels for the front that you can change out depending on the season of the year.
Do you have one?  Know what I'm talking about?
 
Been thinking for a long time I needed to update at least one panel.  This challenge was the perfect incentive!
 
I covered it in black gesso first.
 White it was drying I stamped colored and cut out some images from Inspired Stamps.
 I used modeling paste and some stencils, some pigment inks and some stamps.  I couldn't get the pigment ink to dry-so I embossed using sparkle embossing powder.
 This stencil above is made by my friend Retta.  Called carpet of flowers.  The one below is one I had in my stash.  As you can see I used a white pen to go around my images.  Really made them POP!

 It's so tall-I couldn't get one picture of it!! Had to divide into two.  I LOVE how it turned out!!

Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave a comment and let me know what you think!

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.
