While I was searching through sonme papers I came across the above that gave me the idea for the colour palette of this piece. (I didn't use the paper in the end though!)
I started by using JOFY 007 stencil with Grunge Paste, when this was dry I painted the canvas with Stone Fresco Finish paint. I then used the JOFY 008 stencil with Nougat Fresco Finish paint.
I also carried the stencilling around the edge of the canvas.
I blended some Irish Cream and Moccha Mousse Fresco Finish paint around the edges with a baby wipe. Then I replaced the JOFY stencil and used a little Irish Cream and Moccha Mousse in the centre of the flowers.
I then added a little Spanish Mulberry Fresco Finish to the centre of the flowers. To create more definition around the seed heads I used a small definition brush and painted some Moccha Mousse down one side and blended the paint using a baby wipe.
I then used the Vintage Cabinet die and cut the shape from some cardboard, tearing a little of the top layer away. I then used Grunge Paste with Lin Brown's 006 stencil, only stencilling around the edge as I will be covering the centre.
The large flower is plastic and I've painted it with Fresco Finish paint and then I've brushed it with some White Fire Treasure Gold. The leaves have been die cut from Smoothy card using the Tim Holtz Garden Greens die and painted with Stone Fresco Finish paint and then I've used a baby wipe to dab Irish Cream and Moccha Mousse onto them.
All of the embellishments have been brushed with Stone Fresco Finish paint and then brushed with Treasure Gold. I've also brushed some Treasure Gold over the seed heads too.
The Word Band, flowers and bird cage have also been painted with Stone Fresco Finish paint then brushed with White Fire Treasure Gold.
To finish I added some buttons that have been painted and brushed with Treasure Gold too.
I hope you've enjoyed today's project.
