Love Note

I love using playing cards to make art on. They are small and quick when you just need a minute to yourself to get creative and not really think about what to make. I hope this inspires you! Have a great day!

Fall is my favorite season

Fall is my favorite season. The colors God creates in nature is spectacular!
 
I needed some thinking of you cards. I thought I'd make my own leaves using some Deco Art products.  I have a tutorial showing the Antiquing Creams.
 
 
 
 
 
 

I don't think you'll see turquoise and magenta leaves in nature-but they sure are fun-aren't they. I think it will brighten someone's day.

have a super day yourself!
Thanks for stopping by.

Love...

Whatever you are facing today do know that God loves you unconditionally and will never leave you. Ever. He is right there beside you, every step of the way. His love never fails. Ever.

Video Technique to create "stone" Effect

Hi! I'm Karen Conner.  I'm from southern Virginia, so I warn you now-when you hear me on the video-I have a small accent!  (I don't think I do-but that's what others have said!!) LOL
I'm SO EXCITED to be sharing with you today! 
 
Being able to create anything in my art studio makes me excited!  Even when I think "I'm tired, I think I need a nap"-if I go into my studio I forget all about being tired and can get involved in making something and it totally makes me energized again!
 
Warning!!  This video takes you thru the whole process (except drying time)-it's 24 min long.


I hope this will inspire you to give it a try!  Get those creative juices flowing!!
The products used aren't that expensive.  Most can be found at Walmart! 

Have a super blessed day!!
Karen


Supplies:
8x10 canvas, Acrylic paint, Vintage photo distress paint, Liquitex Texture paste, Deckle scissors, old T-shirt, heat tool, stencil from Walmart
