This is a 16 x 20 canvas that I did at the Cozy Crop House this week. I started by adhering several different tissue papers for the background. I then put a light coat of gesso over the papers. I drew the vase, painted it with acrylic painted and then used a Tim Holtz stencil and molding paste to decorate it. I then stenciled flowers with acrylic paint in the background. I added prima flowers and metal butterflies.

Mojo Monday 444

This is my take on the Mojo Monday sketch this week. I used one of the Tim Holtz Mini Crazy bird stamps. I think I am addicted to them.


The Saturday Paper Ala Mode challenge last Saturday was to add a heart. I used this stamp from Unity Stamp Company. I like the monochromatic look with just a touch of color. I also entered it into the Dies R Us challenge. The challenge there was black and white with an option of an accent color.
