Life Is Art by Lynne Moncrieff



This was a small card I made to send to an art friend.

The Sam Poole designed Art Sayings is a wonderful set to have if you send cards/gifts to art friends although there are many sayings on this set which can be used for other friends and family.


Cosmic Shimmer Chalk Paint – Citron, Jade Mist
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish – Honeydew
Distress Paint – Black Soot, Broken China
Old Credit Card/Artist Palette Knife/Scraper
Decorative Rubber Stamp (source unknown)



Apply Citron, Jade Mist, Honey dew and Gesso to cardstock after fabric pieces have been applied. 

Stamp Gal then randomly, second generation stamp handwriting (from Textures). I also included stamping in the form of a decorative circle stamp but you could use any similar stamp you own.

With black fineliner pen stencil You Are An, leaving enough room for the remainder of the sentiment. Paint scrap of white cardstock with Broken China. Stamp Art Saying. 

Edge panel with Distress Paint Black Soot.


Until next time
