Kitty Christmas Canvas

Isn't this the cutest cat ever?!
I saw a card similar to this and wanted to paint it.
I used DecoArt Acrylic paints.
DecoArt Mandela stencil for the background.
Hand painted the tree limb and cat.
Stamped the ornaments from Unity Stamps November kit.  Stamp the ornaments on tissue paper in Stazon Black ink.  Add them to the canvas with DecoArt matte medium.  Then paint them whatever color you like.

Life is a Blessing!

I'm excited to share this new technique I've tried using vellum.   I stamped my Unity Image with versa mark and embossed black.
I painted the flower with DecoArt Metallic Lustre.  They did FABULOUS on the vellum!! Once you use Metallic Lustre, you rub over it with a soft cloth and it makes it shiny!

American Faith using DecoArt

I LOVE 12x24 canvas!! It give a unique perspective to your subject.
I used Traditions Acrylic Paints by DecoArt.
When you layer them, you can get a great wood grain. The paint is so creamy that it covers the canvas so well.  Check out the multiple colors HERE DECO ART

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!

Stamp your Encouragement

One of the new stamps was this butterfly. The kit came with the solid image and the detailed image.   I love to create my backgrounds with stencils.  The flower is a stencil from DecoArt called Succulent. I just held it where I wanted it and sponged distress inks. I have the new Tim Holtz Tonic Stamp Platform.  I love how you can stamp your image twice! You get a clear image every time!! I stamped the solid butterfly with Mustard distress ink.  Lined the detailed butterfly up with stamped overtop with Barn Door red. 
I used some colored cardstock to mat my sentiment and the card base. Really made the colors pop!!!
