Mixed Media layers with DecoArt and Stampin Up
Lots of layers. Lots of love.
I started with sheets of Baptist hymnal. I used DecoArt matte medium to glue them down. Then I applied a thin layer of gesso. Using the black archival ink, I stamped several Stampin Up butterflies on tissue paper, cut them out and glued them down with matte medium.
Using my fingers, I rubbed acrylic paint in overlapping layers. Green, yellow, pink, magenta from DecoArt Americana. I colored in the butterflies with various markers.
I used some light texture paste and did some layering with some stencils.
I typed up Psalm 28:7, printed and glued onto the canvas with matte medium. I outlined each one with a black and lilac watercolor pencil.
After painting my white flower at the bottom left corner, I used various gelatos in several places.
I got some more stencils out and pushed some DecoArt Metallic wax thru in blue and violet. It gives a beautiful shine!
