Flower Pot

All this week the Stampendous, DecoArt, and Princeton Artist Brushes via inspired by Willow Wolfe are being showcased in an inspirational blog hop! If you missed the beginning of the week, be sure to go back and check  out MONDAY - TUESDAY - WEDNESDAY.   There are three prize packages to commenters with U.S. Mailing Addresses, and DecoArt will be sending three generous sample packages to international commenter.

I have a few projects that I am sharing today and a few more planned for Friday.

First up is a little paper mache flower pot painted with the pretty pink, orange and white acrylic paints.  I used the same paints to create the background for my lovely butterflies.  I colored the beautiful flowers with watercolor pencils and die cut them to place around the flowerpot.


My second project was a journal page using the Stampendous Creative Pallette and DecoArt Acrylic Paints to create my background.

I then layered on images from the Stack Art kits with ink and touches of highlights with a white gel pen.

Products: DecoArts Americana Paints, Stamepndous Creative Pallette, Stack Arts - Royal Hearts Rubber Stamp , Mixed Media - NK Studio Wired Cling , Butterfly Charm Perfectly Clear Stamps, Winged Cross Stamp, Hope Verses Perfectly Clear Stamps, Lovely Garden dies, Lovely Garden Rubber Stamp

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 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.
