We are doing this fun pumpkin gnome on a 4x12 canvas! This is the perfect fall art piece to create for a gift or some festive home decor. I will show you step-by-step how to paint this gnome from start to finish! Learn how to create this quick and easy gnome art piece.

Grab your tracer, tape it to your canvas, place graphite paper underneath, and trace your gnome onto your canvas with a stylus.

I am going to start by painting his beard. First, add a coat of white and then mix in some black to create a gray beard. Then, paint his hat and shoes with black paint. Paint his hat brim and pumpkin with orange paint. I'll also mix in some yellow and black to my pumpkin to create some shadows and highlights. Use brown paint for the stem. Finally, I'll use Cool Bisque (a peachy color) to paint his nose and hands.

Now we will add our details! Where the hat bends, I am going to add some highlights with white paint. Then, I'll paint a little patch with green and yellow paint with some white...

Witchy Pumpkin 🧙‍♀️

We are creating a fun Halloween 8x10 art piece complete with lots of black glass goodies and other extras. I have a sunflower, pinecone, and acorn that I cut off of a floral stem, and I have a rustic metal star that I cut off from a garland. I am going to show you how to paint this from start to finish and add all of the fun elements and resin. This is a simple, easy, and fun fall art project!

Grab your tracer, tape it to your canvas, place graphite paper underneath, and trace your witchy pumpkin onto your canvas with a stylus. Start by adding white paint all around the background of your canvas and then add in some Antique Gold. I like how this is darker around our witchy pumpkin and then gets lighter as it goes out.

On the bottom of my canvas, I am going to add black paint and then add some white streaks in it.

Next, we are going to paint the witch hat with black paint and the hat band and underside of the hat with purple. Dry with a heat tool.

Add a base coat of...

Sparkly Blue Pumpkin 💙

fall pumpkin Sep 20, 2023
 

It's pumpkin time! Today, I am using an 8x8 canvas to create a blue pumpkin on a cream background. This one is going to have a special gold stem with tons of seed beads to really glitz it up! I'll also add some more Starfire glass to the pumpkin. This is one of my favorite pumpkins I've ever made! 

First, I am going to start by painting my background with Oyster White. Then, I'm going to use the backside of a palette knife to add some areas of Sky Blue. Dry with a heat tool.

Grab your tracer, tape it to your canvas, place graphite paper underneath, and trace your pumpkin onto your canvas with a stylus. 

We are going to add a base coat of Desert Turquoise paint to each pumpkin section. I'm going to use Hauser Light Green on the leaves and DecoArt Dazzling Metallic Splendid Gold on the stem.
 
Now let's add our shadows and highlights! I am going to add a second coat of turquoise to my pumpkin and then use Tropical Blue and white to add those details....

White Pumpkin 🤍

fall pumpkin Sep 13, 2023
 

We are using a 4x12 canvas to make a pretty black-and-white monochromatic pumpkin art piece. This one is super simple to create and only requires a few colors of paint and some clear glass and resin. This is the perfect fall project and would match any home's decor this season!

Start by painting your canvas with two coats of Anita's Black. Grab your tracer, tape it to your canvas, place white tracing paper underneath, and trace your pumpkin onto your canvas with a stylus.

Next, let's paint! I am using white, Oyster White, Storm Gray, and Cableknit Gray. I'm going to start with the Oyster White and paint each section separately, letting a little bit of the black show through between each section. 

While that dries, I'm going to add the first coat to the stem. I am using Raw Umber. 

Next, I am going to add another coat of Oyster White to my pumpkin and add some light gray and dark gray shadows and highlights on each pumpkin section. 

Next, add another...

Sunflower Gnome 🌻

We are working on a 4x12 canvas and creating a super cute sunflower gnome! I will show you how I paint this gnome from start to finish, and then we'll be adding some yellow glass sunflower petals as well as some amber-colored glass to our flower center. This is a great fall art piece to create this season!

Grab your tracer, tape it to your canvas, place graphite paper underneath, and trace your gnome onto your canvas with a stylus. 

First, I am going to start by painting his hat with Hauser Green. Then, I'll use a lighter green on the bottom part of his hat. Add a second coat to both colors.

Then, paint his shoes with black paint and his beard with white paint. Then, I'm going to mix together some black paint and white paint to create a gray color, and apply that to the gnome's beard as well. 

Paint the nose with Cool Bisque, which is a peachy skin tone color. Then, I'm going to add some detail work to the hat with some black paint and some white...

Pink Pumpkin On Tin

fall pumpkin Aug 23, 2023
 

We are using a very different surface to create some art today! I am using a 10x14 piece of old rusted sheet metal and we will be painting a pink pumpkin, adding a glass stem, and sprinkling lots of seed beads. This project is perfect for the fall season and would look great as part of your rustic autumn decor!

First, I sketched a pumpkin onto my tin using a piece of chalk. I am going to start by painting my pumpkin with Poodleskirt Pink and white paint. Do not fully cover the surface because we will be adding more paint for shading and highlighting. Dry with a heat tool.

I will add some more Poodleskirt Pink and layer on some Dragonfruit (darker pink) and white as well. I'll use my brush to blend the colors together. Dry with a heat tool.

I'm going to fill in any spots with more paint here and there. I'll also take my paintbrush in the white, tap off excess paint, and just lightly drag it down my pumpkin to create some light texture. I'll do the same with my dark pink. ...

Lace Heart Trio 💕

 

I am using an 8x16 canvas to create a trio of hearts! I am using a stencil to paint the first heart, adding foil and beads to my second heart, and adding glass to the last heart. This is very simple to make - especially if you have a few stencils in your stash! This is also a fun way to explore different embellishments, like foil, glass, and seed beads in your artwork.

Let's start by painting our background! I am using pink paint, teal paint, and white paint. Start by applying a coat of white to the entire canvas, then add the teal towards the top and the pink toward the bottom. I like keeping my strokes messy and random, blending the colors together where they meet. Dry with a heat tool.

Add your first heart using pink paint. I'll also blend in some white for highlighting. Then, grab your lace stencil, tape it to the canvas on top of your heart, and use a stencil brush to apply red paint. Dip your brush into the red, swirl some off onto a paper towel, and apply your paint in a...

Seaglass Beach 🌊

beach summer Aug 09, 2023
 

I am dreaming of the beach, so we are going to squeeze in one last beach art piece before the summer is over! We are working with an 8x8 canvas, and this art project has minimal painting and lots of glass goodies. We'll be adding sea glass in blues and greens, tinted seashells, Caribbean Blue and Solex glass, flat gems, seed beads, bubbles, and more! 

First, I am going to paint a beach background. I am going to paint the lower portion of my canvas with Vintage White for the sand. Then, I'll use Spa Blue, Castaway, and white paint to create my ocean and sky. I'm using Castaway for the ocean and going lighter towards the top of my canvas, blending the colors together. Dry with a heat tool.

Next, I am going to lay out some of the glass onto my canvas. I am adding the Solex glass, Caribbean Blue glass, and tinted seashells right where my sand and ocean meet. (We will add the rest of the sea glass, seed beads, and other glass after the resin is on)

Next, we'll add resin....

Chubbie Dragonfly

summer Aug 02, 2023
 

We are working with an 8x8 canvas and creating a dragonfly with some acrylic paint and a piece of Chubbie glass from JL Glass. This little glass piece is the perfect thing to create a dragonfly's body! I'll also be using some seed beads to make those wings really sparkle. 

Start by painting your background with Metallic White and then I'll also add the tiniest bit of Metallic Turquoise in an arch motion to create a pearly sky. Dry with a heat tool. 

I have some small dragonfly stencils that I am going to use with some Enchanted Turquoise, which is an iridescent paint, to add two dragonflies in the background. I'll just place the stencil on my canvas and use a stencil brush in a pouncing motion to apply those. Dry with a heat tool.

Grab your tracer, tape it to your canvas, place graphite paper underneath, and trace just the wings onto your canvas with a stylus. 

Next, I am going to paint the wings with Metallic Turquoise, Festive Green, Splendid...

Cotton Boll

We are creating a cute and simple Cotton Boll art piece on a small 6x6 canvas. I'm going to show you how to paint your background and cotton boll and then we'll add some Starfire glass, seed beads, and resin to finish off this art piece. 

First, start by painting your background with a smokey blue color. I'm using Winter Blue and I'll also mix in some white paint too.

Grab your tracer, tape it to your canvas, place graphite paper underneath, and trace your cotton boll onto your canvas with a stylus. 

Next, I'm going to paint my cotton boll with white paint. I'll paint the stem with Spanish Olive, which is light green. Then, I'll add some Olive Green, Raw Umber, and white paint for some shadows and highlights. 

I'll add a second coat of white paint to my cotton boll and then add some Winter Blue to create some definition with the curve of the cotton boll.

Take a graphic pen to add some detail lines. I'm going to add some lines around my stem and also some...
