We'll be sending three prize packages to commenters with U.S. Mailing Addresses, and DecoArt will be sending three generous sample packages to international commenters, so all our friends can play.
This week we've shown you how to use Stampendous Rubber Stamps to transfer a terrific pattern for painting. Did you know you can sell your projects made with our images? As long as you hand stamp each one, you can sell as many as you like of any kind of project anywhere you want. You can find our detailed Angel Policy on our website.
One of the terrific prizes is a Catalyst Wedge from Princeton Artist Brushes and inspired by Willow Wolfe. These wedges are terrific for using with our Creative Palette and DecoArt paints. In this video Stampendous owner Fran Seiford demonstrates how easy it is to make amazing backgrounds with these tools.

Morning all, thanks for stopping by, as you can see there is something a little different going on today. With the launch of the new Decoart Media line the Decoart International DT are very pleased to be taking part in the week long blog hop held by Stampendous,we are also joined by Princeton Artist Brush Co.
Today is the last day of the hop, if you have missed out on the beginning of the week you really have missed out on some amazing creativity.
I am sharing a canvas this morning. Here are the Products I have used.
Using the Decoart modelling paste I gave some texture to the canvas leaving a central panel around a section of text tissue paper that was glued down.
Once the modelling paste had started to dry out I used the Circle image from Stampendous and stamped gently into the surface, I also used the circles stencil from their stamp set and applied more modelling paste.
Some Burlap was also pushed into the paste as were some half pearls. I added some of Stampedous's mica fragments to add even more texture.You can see a couple of them in the pic below.They add a beautiful flaky look.The edges were finished of with some texture sand.
After a coat of Gesso the colour was built up with washes. I am amazed at how little of the fluid acrylic is needed, One drop of each colour was needed to get the blue tones, using a wet brush I picked up a little colour and started to apply randomly mixing the shades together varying the intensity of colour.
The spots were painted carefully with white and the hand was added as the focal point.
To tidy everything up the edged of the canvas were painted black and the whole piece was given a coat of the satin varnish.
Thanks fo stopping by, Hopefully you have liked what you have seen and will be eager to get to the next blog.
Morning All, Thanks for stopping by, It's my turn over at De Stempelwinkel today and I have a little mixed media board tag I made using the new fluid acrylics and mixed media products from the new media line by Decoart.
If you have time I would love to see you over there where you can see the full tag x
Just a little post to share my latest blog post over on my new Shabby Chic blog Spesh-chic.
If you have time it would be great to see you over there, I have lots more Photos and a step by step of what was done x
I am also very excited to share that I will be demoing the chalk paints at The CraftRange in Burnley as part of their Big Craft Event, there are several other artists demoing products including Andy Skinner and Lindsay Mason.
If you have the day free I would love to see you and if you do make it up come and say hi.
Morning all, here is a little teaser post form my June Calendar pages over at De Stempelwinkel, I have used Decoart Chalk Paints for the background, to see the full images and a little what's what it would be great to see you over there xx.
So, Slowly slowly things are getting back to normal and it really helped to get the mojo back on board by attending a class at my local store held by Andy Skinner.
A short sweet post today with a few pictures of what we made in class using Decoart mediums and paints.The cover was finished of with some Tim Holtz rub ons and some ideology.It was great catching up with some lots of familiar faces and meeting a few new ones too.
Now this may not look to Turquoise but they did allow some leeway ;) but under all the colour washes and dry brushing this did start out a very nice Turquoise. My brown came in the way of the little picture frame that I gave a rusty finish to.I also decided to use a non crafty item which was the fuse.
At the trade show earlier this year I was lucky enough to be given a few bottles and products from the new Media line and they are what I have used on this ATC, I have used the fluid acrylics (love these) modelling paste, texture sand, interference paint and satin glaze.
The only thing I am not keen on now is the size of the portrait in the frame, It's just that little bit to small, I used one of Tim Holtz's rub ons but thinking back maybe I should have printed an image or found something different.
Saturday also had me teaching my second class at That Craft Place in Eastbourne here are some pics from the day and the projects that were made. It was the chalk memo board class. Their image transfers came out so well and its always good to see so much variation in finishes.
Thank you ladies for making the class so much fun, I can not wait for the next class x
Good morning, Hopefully this post appears when it should as I am scheduling, ( I hate Technology ) as I will already have left for the big craft show at Ally Pally, If you make it to the show come and say Hi.
A very quick post from me this eve, I have just started a new blog, Spesh-Chic, I will be using the new blog for all my Shabby makes using the Decoart Chalk piants. I would love for you all to join me over there as well xx
