Stampaway Week Begins

It the most wonderful time of the year! No its not Christmas but Stampaway Week and for a completely over the top stamper like me this is a very fun time!  I spent the day in the Dayton area at Marco’s Paper. They are having a Stamping Gala and on Monday it was USA ArtQuest day and there were all day long free Make It Take Its.

The first one was making backgrounds with acrylic paint.

We took two pieces of glossy paper this being Stardream; dropped several drops of various paint colors on. Then put the two pieces together smoose around, twirl a bit and the slide apart. I added some glitter to one piece, but each look quite good. The one below is done on black glossy paper:

And you can see right off how generous Marco’s is as here is another one I made.

I don’t know yet what I’ll make out of them but I’m sure it will be great.

Another MITI I did was using a napkin (The Flamingo is the napkin) adhering it with PVA matte and then sprinkling some glitter (I got too much) and then covering it to seal it with PVA Gloss (both my USA ArtQuest).

The last MITI I did was this wonderful pear stamp on Suede Paper

with the pearl-ex palette paints:

In between MITI’s I went shopping at Craft2000 and at Marco’s got to see my Dayton crew Pat, Marie and Lynette and met a new addition Gloria. I spent the day with Bonnie and both the ride up and back was so much fun! Looking forward to Friday’s class with Tim Holtz and the Friday party at Stampaway!

Wow, that paint technique looks amazing!!! I have tried it before but mine didn't come out as fabulous as those colors look!!! Your cards are fab too! I agree with Sandy about your stamping on the suede paper -- love it!
