Clarissa and I took advantage of the great sale at Plaza Art and picked up several stretched canvases last weekend. I really like the 4 X 12 size and finally had some time last night to try one out. The girl and puppies is from Rock Candy Studios' Girly Girls image CD. I resized her to just over 9" tall and the quality was not affected at all. Acrylic paints, stamps and stencils were used to create the piece. Later!

ChristianPaperArtists is having a Monochromatic Red ATC swap and this is my completed card. I used printed cardstock and added Golden's bright red glaze. Layers of paint were stenciled on and then the painted piece was mounted to red cardstock. I used a sewing machine to make the holes around the border and then finished the edges with handsewing. The text was typed using my antique typewriter...mostly due to the fact that my computer was down and I couldn't print anything. A punched heart was paper embossed using a Cuttlebug folder. All the elements were mounted and then outlined with a burgundy gel pen. This was the last of the swaps I'm signed up for so I'm off to look for another swap or two. Know of any good ones?
