Winter Tweets Birdhouse by Debbie Cole

A few feathered friends have a glittery and shimmery home in our featured projects for today’s post. Shaved Ice on Dreamweaver Regular Paste is a great festive addition to this Winter Tweet Birdhouse created by Decorative Artist and instructor Debbie Cole.

All you need is a sticky base and elements that catch the light in a room to add glitz to your projects. Here is a beautiful burst of shimmer and glitter from Spoonful of Silver and Spoonful of Snow used on a Sticky Panels sheet for a home base to Fran’s festive bluebird card.

Steam Pumpkin Gears Frame by Debbie Cole

We are adding painting to our Stencil Thursday post because well, we are still having a great time at the Heart of Ohio Tole painting convention. With all of our wonderful stencil we have from Dreamweaver Stencils and Fran’s metal stencils there are plenty to add accents to your painted projects.

Stencils can add wonderful texture in any of your painted decor pieces like Debbie Cole’s Steam Pumpkin Frame shown above. The gears in the background create a fabulous depth and mat the floating painted Steam Pumpkin image amazingly!

Stampendous and DecoArt Blog Hop Day 5

WEB_DecoArt_STM_Hop_03_016

 

Here we are on our last, and biggest hop day with international mixed media artist Andy Skinner and his wonderful Design Team at DecoArt. We hope you’ve been amazed and delighted at the inspiration we’ve shared with you. Andy’s stamps are just so exciting and fun to use, and we know you’ve loved seeing the range of the DecoArt Fluid Media line as well.

One reason we focused on the Media range for this blog hop, is that it’s the perfect acrylic paint to use when tinting your Dreamweaver Embossing Pastes! Just one drop of these pigment-rich media paints is enough to tint a generous quantity of paste for making your favorite backgrounds. Don’t be afraid to color your pastes to match your projects. Most Dreamweaver Embossing Pastes can be tinted very easily.  Here are some examples from our own Leadonna Fritts! You might just recognize some of these made into projects on her blog this week.

 

Now get hopping and be sure to leave a trail of comments on each of the designer blogs. Each comment gets you one entry for a great prize package (open to everyone) of all three of Andy Skinner’s newest stamps for Stampendous PLUS a Fluid Media Acrylic Starter Kit.

Dreaming of Creative Painting With Stenciling

DWLJ927_R247_V273_DC_800
My Beautiful Life Canvas by Debbie Cole

Being it a painterly kind of week and all we are mixing it up a notch or two with stencils and paint today. Debbie Cole, Creative Decorative Artist, has made a beautiful background mix of stencil embossing, painting and stamping that dance around the canvas as happy as can be.

Bare Trees Pendant by Debbie Cole

Debbie’s artistic viewfinder focused on key branches from the Bare Trees Stencil to give this pendant necklace an interesting design. Just think of all the great pendants that can be created using various sections from a single stencil!

There are more stencil and paint ideas from our team. Louise Healy combined embossed Maidenhair Fern Stencil and Honeycomb Stencil with paint to an excellent wall hanging. It is one of her favorite projects and I can see why.
