Mixed Media: Stamping with Deco Art

Love mixed media but don't know how to start?
Grab a canvas or piece of MDF.
 
I glued down ripped pieces of a Paris themed calendar using gel medium. Once dry, cover in a watered down coat of off white acrylic paint. Dry. (when drying you can let air dry or use heat tool)
 I rubbed Phthalo Green-Blue around the edge with my finger. (Yes-I like getting messy!) Rub a little Carbon Black over top of that.  Then I mixed some Dazzling Metallics glaze in with Raw Umber and covered the whole thing-rub some back off with a soft t-shirt (recycled). Gives a great antique feel with a slight shimmer.
 I did some stenciling, some stamping (use black stazon) and did an image transfer.
 More stamping using Deco Art Media Simmer Mister (Violet) mixed with Acrylic Red Violet.
 Had made some flowers by stamping on Glossy Photo paper and using a watercolor technique with Deco Art Media Shimmer Misters.  Fussy cut them and added to canvas with dimensionals.

Stamped my girl (Unity Stamps) and colored her with Tradition Acrylic paints.

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!!
