Good morning folks, how's your weekend going? It's a bit grey and miserable so that's all the excuse I need to play in my craft room. We've got a new challenge starting at We Love 2 Create and as always our theme is 'Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes' so there's no excuse not to join in, especially as our lucky winner will receive some fabulous crafty stash from Premium Craft Brands.
I've used a 12x12 canvas to create this project. I used the beautiful Gardenia stencil from Prima and PanPastels for the lovely lady. PanPastels are perfect for this kind of project as they are so forgiving and blend beautifully.
I used PanPastels in shades of turquoise to create the background and then stencilled over the top with another Prima stencil and white gesso to create a subtle floral effect.
Next I added some more stencilling using a harlequin stencil and black gesso. Once that was dry I applied Fine Black Pearl PanPastel medium around the edges, blending it over the background to highlight the stencilling.
To preserve her modesty I gave her a dress made from white polkadot tulle with some resin flowers that I'd coloured with acrylic paint. The roses were a real bargain from the pound shop! I love a bargain lol.
I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
