This month’s challenge over at Country View Crafts Challenges is ‘Add some Texture’. This is a wonderfully diverse topic that means you can let your imagination run wild! I started with an MDF block and last time I showed you one side, this is the other! I used the new paint colours from PaperArtsy and Slate.
I started by adding Grunge Paste through a dotty stencil and... I didn’t like it! So I sanded the grunge paste down to leave a shadow of the dots and then stencilled the flowers on top.
I decided to do the opposite from before – I added light green paint, then green paint
Then plum and blue and kept adding painty layers until I was happy!
I loved this at this point but decided I wanted the flowers to be darker... Did I make the right decision?!
The final touch was to add a watercolour highlight to the flower. I used a black watercolour pencil and then added water to activate it but you could use charcoal or a Distress marker or watered down paint...
