    Step 1

    I used a 11"x14" canvas. I cut Marion Smith's Antique Emporium to 10.5"x12" and adhered the left over strip to the bottom of my canvas with Ranger Multi Medium.

    Step 2

    I applied Perfect Paints Polishing Plaster and Weathered Plaster through The Crafter Workshop ~ Alhambra and Quatrefoil Reversed.

    Step 3

    I then applied a mixture of Perfect Glaze Medium and Shimmering Matte Acrylic ~ Aged Copper over the canvas. Then I removed some of the color with a baby wipe.

    Step 4

    I mixed Perfect Paints Shimmering Stucco with Shimmering Matte Acrylic ~ Moss Green, to create a mixture I applied through The Crafter's Workshop ~ Herbarium stencil on Marion Smith paper.

    Step 5

    I cut out my foliage and added them to the BEAUTIFUL flower cluster created using Petaloo Botanica collection.
