Painting with StencilGIrl Stencils and Chipboard Cutouts!

Hi, everyone! Jennifer Evans here with another mixed media painting project!
This is a 10" x 20" canvas using my Daisy Wildflowers stencil,

Gesso the canvas, then paint with acrylic paint for desired background color.
After painting the background, I splattered it here and there with plain water,
waited a few moments, then pulled up some of the paint with paper towels.

Using the stencil, add daisies and leaves to the canvas for a first layer.
Then, place the chipboard elements in a pleasing design:
I used the Berries cutouts as the large flower centers, then placed the tulips and leaves around the canvas.
Cut free-form petals from your stash of scrapbook and gelli printed papers,
arrange the large blooms and affix to canvas with decoupage or Matte gel.
Paint chipboard pieces and affix them as well, once the paint has dried.
Unify all elements of the canvas with your favorite acrylic paint.
I used a combination of high flow and acrylic inks.
Dilute some of the acrylic paint to create a glaze over the patterned papers.
Add in stems and extra leaves as necessary.

Happy Stenciling!
