I prepped it my surface first with white gesso, then mixing the two browns to come up with the color I wanted, I mixed with Mudd. Stencil morse code and layered it criss-cross to resemble burlap.
I chose these pretty G45 papers and fussy cut my images then took a black marker and ran over all the edges to get rid of the white. It really makes a huge difference when you fussy cut.
Wanting more texture I then grabbed the Mudd paste and added craft sand and ran it through Bubbles.
Let's start coloring now, I started with the lightest which is Timeless, and I heat set each color of spray before going to the next.
I then started randomly adding my blues, the lightest at the top finishing off with Ink Spot which is the darkest blue.
Let's add some interest to the flowers. Poked holes in some of them to add stamens, others I added prills and seed beads for the flowers centers.
Here are some closeups of the sead beads and prills used for texture on the flowers.
For some more fun I used glossy accents to adhere some dew drop and Floral glass fillers.
The different shades of blues are beautiful.
