Giveaway Alert!!!! Fun Friday!!

I, it's Karen Conner here today!
Friday's are always the best day of the week. Last day to work. First start to the weekend.
What can be more fun?? Right?
I've recently lost my job and had an excessive amount of business cards laying around.
I decided to make something with them!
I glued them face to face and had enough to make little booklets.
I made a total of 7 booklets.
After they had dried, I laid them out on scratch paper and using a brayer, I laid the acrylic paint onto the surface with the brayer.  You get different shades and different amounts-that's ok.
I used a blend of light green, yellow and vanilla.
I let it dry really well.
They I stamped some dots here and there with momento ink.
They I embossed with glitter some stamped flowers.  Just stamped them randomly on one side only.
I kept one side with just the paint so I could add my scriptures to them.
I've been doing a bible study call "Living so that" by Wendy Blight.  It was terrific!  I'll be sending her one and one to P31 readers.  Thought I'd give one away here on our blog as well.  Please leave me your email in the comment section if your interested in receiving one of these handy little books.

You can purchase glue, acrylic paints, embossing pads and inks, flowers and all the supplies I've used to make my little books.  I put them together with my Cinch.  They turned out really cute!!

Thanks for stopping by today!

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!

DecoArt new Premium Acrylic Mixed Media Paint Home Project

Recycling and creating something new has always been one of my favorite things to do.   The square "shadow box" I've been saving for quite some time and now have forgotten what came in it.  It's part of packaging. The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
