I had the pleasure of working right across from Pegi and the gals of Stampendous at Creative Painting!


I also had the great pleasure of receiving a nice gift from them of the three BRAND new Andy Skinner Stamps!  If you have not seen them here they are!

AndySo I set out to demonstrate and use these fun stamps. PLEASE DON’T  TELL HIM I LIKE THEM!

I started out with this background that I misted with DecoArt Media Mister (Primary Cyan and Shimmer Turquoise).  I then used Andy’s Background Stamps with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic (Pyrolle Red and Green Gold)


Lately I am a little obsessed with Gold Metallic so I used that on Andy’s stamps:


I used DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic (Titan Buff) on a new Andy Skinner DecoArt Stencil along the left side and then I painted some black leaves/vines with DecoArt Media Gesso (Black).  I completed the piece by adding some hearts and doodles to make it mine.


I am happy to share these photos right from the floor where I created this pieces in one of my demonstration.  I am sorry to report that this piece was water damaged upon my return but happy I got to share these photos with you!  Thank you so much to Stampendous for the stamps and continued support. I am happy to say that they are one of my sponsors for my Big MAY Birthday Month of Giveaways!  Stay tuned for that!

Our greatest defense against stress is the ability to choose one thought over another.  Remember this.  If you look for reasons to be angry and upset, you’ll find plenty of them.  Look instead for reasons to be positive, and see them everywhere.”
