Smeared and Smudged Blog Hop

Come join the fun!
I'm hopping with the Smeared and Smudged ladies!
 
The theme is TRANSPARENCY.
 
Craft Attitude makes a fabulous product that is a film that you run thru your printer.
You cut it out and glue it face down onto any project.
As you can see-the results are fabulous!
 
 I purchased this wooden ornament after Christmas last year 70% off. I ripped off the holly and primed the star with Deco Art light primer. I covered the top layer of the star with Deco Art Gold Metallic Wax Finish. Glued my film -printed with Altered Pages Angel Voices collage sheet - on top.  Then I stamped in black stazon in each point of the star. I rubbed a little Deco Art gold Metallic Wax to the Wild Orchid Flower and glued it at the top.  I think the ornament turned out ADORABLE!
 This is one of the little jewelry boxes you get. Recycled they are transformed into a work of art!
I stamped a Christmas greeting onto tissue paper in the box above and glued right onto the box below the film image. That's a nice way to add a stamped image to something.

I hope you've been inspired to recycle and transform some ordinary items into a spectacular piece to use over and over!!
Have fun going to the different blogs to see what type of TRANSPARENTCY the other bloggers have done!!

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!!!
