Hello Everyone and Happy, Happy month of March! I am loving the month of March here in my new home of Creston, BC as Spring has Sprung and it has arrived a full two months earlier than I used to experience in Cremona, Alberta - well just LOOK at my crocuses!
Creating the background was an easy 3-step process:
1. Pick your favorite stencil and apply texture paste using a pallet knife.
2. Once paste has dried paint with a coat or two of thick Gesso.
3. Once Gesso has dried, add color... I used my Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze and Ranger Distress Stain and let the liquid color flow into the cracks and crevices... using a paper towel to dab away any excess... in this case - less is MORE!
Once the Background was done I had a blank canvas to enhance any way I liked and I fussy cut out all my favorite flowers from Susan K. Weckesser paper "Live in Color" and "Bouquet". I applied these cutouts using Mod Podge and added one more coat of glossy Mod Podge over the entire project for protection and bit of shininess.
