Upcycled Composition Book with DecoArt


 This was the beginning.  I put a coat of gesso on top of the composition book.  Lay your stencil in the desired position and apply texture paste.  Once it was dry, I added another layers of gesso.
Then the fun begins!!  I spritzed some water on the front and added some drops of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics paints.  Burnt Sienna, Cobalt Turquoise, Cobalt Teal and Titanium white.  Use your finger to move around. Spritz more water if needed.You'll want to dry each color before adding the next so you don't end up with mud!

 Once it was dry, I added Metallic Luster to the raised areas of the stencil.  Used Cosmic Blue and Champagne Ice.

Then I used Unity Stamp Indie Girl. 

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!!!
