A quick school project....stencils and spray paint !!

Hi friends

My son had to decorate a 8x10 wall tile for his school's 50th anniversary......and we had just half an hour to do it....here's a quick and easy project......




My son was happy sanding the tile to create some rough texture so that the paints have a better chance to adhere. He then painted it all over with the black acrylic paint. we were so short of time that we decided to go with simply stenciling a design...so out with some inexpensive stencils and a spray paint in gold........this part was done by me for obvious reasons. I used a craftslane flourish stencil in the opposite corners and the itsy bitsy party stencil on the left hand bottom corner , I messed up on the right top corner so just wiped all the paint and stamped with the negative of the party stencil which had a lot of paint on it ............love the gold on white with all that embossing kinda effect...talk of happy accidents !! The 3D outliner by Fevicryl in copper is used to write Anniversary wishes and some dimension on the cake. The spray paint dries super quick.....a coat of spray varnish and packed and ready for school !! Hope this is useful and gives some new ideas to the busy moms and kids !!

Rubber Dance Art Stamps June Colour Challenge

Hi Friends

This is my entry for the June Rubber Dance Art Stamps Challenge



Here are the colors for the challenge

The optional theme is Sand and Sea 
I have made this Art Journal page for this challenge..........


I started with two coats of Gesso on my book pages. After it dried I used the texture paste with microbial stencil by Crafters workshop. Playing with a lot of inks.......


The sea shell is an Image transfer using the image from The Graphics Fairy and Gel Medium.


The sentiment is a rubber stamp from the Tim Holtz stamp set Butterfly Melange, used the other stamps from this set to add texture on and around the edges of the page with black Archival ink .


some other tiny stamps by inkadinkado to stamp tiny sea creatures and shells..........


Have used white gesso and a black permanent pen to define and create a shadow around my focal image. Some touch ups on the image with white gesso and white Uniball pen. Bubbles are doodled all over with the black and white pens.........


circles stamped with a small paint lid with white gesso are defined with some colour markers..........


lastly some dry brushing on the edges and textured surface to highlight the texture, black and white paint splatters and white gel pen detailing ............


I am so fascinated by the sea and feel an irresistible pull whenever am close to the sea. I can sit and watch the waves forever, love the ever changing beauty, mood and character of sea through out the day!! I am quite nervous about sharing this small secluded corner of the beach with all of you and do hope for some honest feedback which will help me in this creative journey......
