Unity FWF Linkup with DecoArt


Happy Friday!
I'm so excited to share what I've made today. 


                                            I love to recycle -anything!
I've been using frames with my 5x7 canvas.  I have the left over backs.  
What could I do??
I still have some stamp sets from my last Unity order I haven't played with.
Unmmm.....what's a girl to do? 
Since it's FWF Unity day....


I decided to treat it as a canvas!  I painted it with DecoArt gesso first. Then collaged this beautiful napkin I've been saving from a baby shower using Deco-Page Matte medium.
Using my finger and some Americana acrylic paint, I went around the edges to blend them into my "canvas".  The edge is rubbed with black gelato and smeared with my finger.
 

I colored my survivor girls with watercolor pencils after stamping them with black archival ink.  The sentiment was stamped and cut out. Added some Wild Orchid flowers to finish it off.  I LOVE how it turned out!

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!!
