Word Art Wednesday challenge

I'm still filling in at Word Art Wednesday. 
For this weeks wonderful scripture I Samuel 2:2-I included it on this altered clipboard. 
I love altering things and I especially love including scripture on them!
 
I hoard Heartfelt Creations designer paper!!  That's right-I admitted it-I HOARD it!
This particular page is so beautiful with the lattice and flowers.  I just couldn't cut it up-I don't care if the other side is different!  In trying to decide which side to use-this page was easy-I love the lattice.
 
The Prima girl is pieced together, glossy accents added to her headband and shoes.
 I did an experiment on the back of the clipboard.  I coated it in gesso and then embossed this stamp with white embossing powder.  I had to heat it a long time.  I think if I had waited for the gesso to dry overnight, the embossing powder would have heated quicker. 

It still turned out great!  I layered distress inks overtop of it.  When you do that-take a paper towel & wipe overtop to clean the ink off your embossed areas.


You'll need to go to Word Art Wednesday website and link your creation.

This weeks prizes include:  Nice Crane Designs (digital sponsor $20 voucher) - and Prairie Point Junction $15 gift certificate

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.
