First up today I have a couple of little sneaks for you...
For the first time in ages, I used Kraft cardstock as a base.
I got out my trusty Heavy White Gesso, and using a combination of a brayer and fan brush, went around the edges to create a messy border. I thinned it down a little with water for this first step.
I chose about 4-5 stencils and this time used an old card to smear more gesso (not thinned this time)
just leaving a bit of "white"space towards the centre.
I broke out the Colour Shimmer Dust in Peacock , and mixed very sparingly with water, before using the kissing technique to lay some colour in top right quarter.
I mixed a little Duke up with water also, and soaked some muslin in it to get the strength of colour I wanted.
Once it was dry, I used it as a layer under my photo, added the rest of my embellies...
Hope you like it!
