Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #16

Hi!
I am excited to share with you from Craft Hoarders Anonymous today.
 
Most paper crafters also love school and office supplies. We love crayons, markers, shaped paperclips, notepads, folders, and more! If you hoard school and office products, get them out! Use them up! Use at least one item that is really a school or office supply on your project. 
Our Sponsors: Heartfelt Creations, Crafty Secrets, Lindy's Stamp Gang
 
This challenge came at the perfect moment -I just started college classes.
I couldn't just carry a plain ole notebook-could I??
 
I altered a composition book using Heartfelt Creations Designer Paper.
I love fussy cutting their paper.  I really didn't want a lot of bulk on top since I will be using it a lot, I fussy cut flowers.  To add some WOW-I distressed the edges with vintage photo distress ink and added Bisque liquid pearls
to the centers.  When adding them to your project, put some flat and add dimensionals to some to overlap and add depth.
The pearls are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.
 

Now-you've got to head over the Craft Hoarders Anonymous blog and enter Challenge #16 yourself!!  You could win some fabulous prizes!!

Thanks to Gloria for allowing me to guest design with her and her fabulous Design Team!!

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!!!
