Deco Art Metallic Wax-AMAZING STUFF

I picked up this frame at an Estate sell. It had been in the basement a long time. I left it out to air-but the basement smell would not go away!  My husband suggested spray painting it to seal it.
I said WHAT!  This is a beautiful wood frame-I don't want to ruin it!
I let it air some more.  The smell wasn't going away.
 
So we sprayed it gloss white. I had decided to make put something contemporary looking in it.
 
Then I remembered.....Deco Art Metallic Wax and Antiquing Cream.
I put a coat of carbon black antiquing cream on first.
let it dry.
Take a damp cloth and wipe to reveal the beautiful design of the frame.
Take a dry cloth and rub the Gold Metallic Wax to highlight the raised edges.
 Here's a close up of the amazing finished frame!!!!  Isn't it beautiful?


Look for Deco Art products.  I give the Antiquing Cream and Metallic Wax a big thumbs up!!

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!!
