What Can You Do With LUMINARTE?


Well, to begin with, you can paint chipboard, as I've done here in the background. You can paint Petaloo flowers. These are all painted with Twinkling H2O's except the green one in the center. VERY vibrant colors from LUMINARTE!!!

The birdcage, fancy flourishes, and baroque are from
TIM .The birdcage is crackle painted then the dark blue Ocean Wave was used over the crackle. This collage is done on an 8x8 canvas board.

And this is just a craft store unfinished wooden birdhouse painted with various colors of Luminarte paints. The butterfly is also painted after being stamped on Grungepaper and cut out.

This is a tag page from the Bare Elements Brenda book from that I cut apart. Various H2O's were painted randomly on the tag and the overlay, Antique Floral transparency from Narratives, is added with brads. I used a black Faber-Castell PITT artist pen to add more leaves to fill out the design. It doesn't have to be perfect, just capture the main design of the flowers.

So, that's just a few things you can do with Luminarte! Give it a try. I've been running around all day, so later in the week we'll get a picture of the prizes and get that going.

Stay tuned!

You've been busy! Love what you can do with Luminarte paints, but I think I need more instruction. When's your next workshop?

Oh, I love these projects - just adore what you've done with those petaloo flowers, and the tag at the end is just stunning.

Hey Linda,

It's been a while since I popped over to your blog and I find that you've been REALLY busy and created a ton of absolutely gorgeous pieces of artwork...just stunning. I promise to try and get back more often, I feel like I've missed out.

Take care and love from a sunny UK!

Stellar work as always, gf! Love the colors of the luminarte. I purchased some at the Madison quilt show a couple of years back, and really love it, but the idea of it in a dauber is very exciting....
