Encouragement in Sad Times

We are in sad times.  I have friends that can't visit their loved ones in the nursing homes.  I have church members that are at home alone.  We all need an encouraging word. 

 I've been making lots of "thinking of you" cards to send.
Today I'm showing a favorite stamp of mine from Stampin Up. A large butterfly.  I stamped on watercolor paper and embossed with black.  Then watercolored.  I splattered with black (one of my favorite things to do!!)) and added a sentiment that is store bought.  Super easy.  Can crate multiples in no time.

Entering challenge
Word Art Wednesday: Anything goes #432-433

Thanks for looking!!
I hope you're inspired to create!



Pioneer Woman inspired artwork with Decoart

Working from home!!  Creates a new timeline for me to create!
I have a friend that's into Pioneer Woman design.  She has a LARGE wall in her kitchen that needs some art! Ha!
I did a Social Art networking design and added some orange and turquoise for the main 16x20 canvas, but needed a design for the sides.  I created two 11x14 side canvas that hopefully matches her original design.  I tried to use the same bold colors.
Used a lot of DecoArt stencils: French Living, Tropical Leaf, Lace, Daisy Chain along with DecoArt Americana paints in turquoise, bright yellow, pink and orange.
My stencil brush is from Rebecca Baer.  It's the best stencil brush and I use it all the time!!
Check out what I came up with:

I added some diecut flowers to add to the dimension and design.

Thank for checking out my design!!
Have a creative day!!
