Paint and Stamps – Together At Last!


We’re using terrific products from our generous friends at DecoArt and Princeton Artist Brushes, via inspired by Willow Wolfe,  this week to show you that “if it will sit still long enough, you can paint it and stamp it!” If you’re just joining us, don’t miss the great inspiration from Monday’s Post and Tuesday’s Post.

Artists from DecoArt’s International Design Team are joining the Stampendous team to create some astonishing inspiration for you. Prepare to be amazed!

Of course, there are PRIZES! DecoArt is sending sets of their  Media Fluid Acrylics, we’ll be adding a Stampendous Creative Palette, and Decorative Painter Willow Wolfe has persuaded Princeton Artist Brushes to donate some Select 3750 Brushes and a Catalyst Wedge to each prize package. We’ll mail three prize packages to commenters with U.S. Mailing Addresses, and Deco Art will mail three sample packages to international commenters so all of our friends can play!

Here’s a terrific project created by our Design Team Member Janelle Stollfus. She used “layers and layers” of paint on this plaque to get that incredibly deep background. She stamped the face on tissue and colored ahead of time to make application easy. The hair is ribbon and found items. LOVE IT!!

A few of the bloggers this week are new to hopping, so if you have an issue with any of the links, here’s a little tip! If you get a page that says “Sorry that Page is not here” or something similar, try clicking on the header picture at the top of the blog, or look for something that says Home. The hop page should be near the top of the day’s posts. We will fix broken links as the day goes on, as well, so check back here if you are really lost.

The Official Rules are here.
