DecoArt Easy Abstract

Get ready for the easiest awesomeness ever! Okay maybe that's overstating it a little bit but this video shows how you can get spectacular results with minimal effort and just a few inexpensive DecoArt products:

 

Here is the list of supplies used this video, all from DecoArt:
DecoArt Media Gesso-Black
DecoArt Media Gesso-White
Crafter's Acrylic-Tutti Frutti 
Crafter's Acrylic-Pure Pumpkin
Americana Acrylics-True Red
Americana Neon-Sizzling Pink
Americana Neon-Thermal Green
Americana Neon-Scorching Yellow 
Andy Skinner Stencil-Hippy Chic
Craft Twinkles Writers-Gold

You will also need:
Text weight paper, any size 
Inexpensive 2" chip brush like these
Sponge or other applicator for stenciling
Optional: Americana Stencil-Scribble



Talk about a lot of bang for your buck! What you do with your finished piece is up to you. I'm using mine as journal covers but you can collage with it, frame it as abstract art, use it in a scrapbook layout or on an art journal page, decoupage with it, use it on handmade greeting cards or embellishments, make ATCs, inchies, twinchies, DaVincis, whatever!

Pick up your supplies in the DecoArt Online Store and don't forget to browse through the categories. You might accidentally find some hidden clearance items if I haven't snatched them all up already.

Love the video. Never saw that glitter writer. Need that. I don't seem to get notices of your posts for some reason. Found this on FB.
