What We Think We Become OS

Today I'm at the Craft Shop Blog with yet another tutorial using Plaid Folkart Paints.


I have combined stencil work with one stroke painting on my canvas. I love Craftreat stencils. The designs are so versatile that they go well with any artwork be it art journaling, mixed media, card making, painting.....list goes on.

First gave a thick coat of Rose Gold metallic paint and let it dry.

Next i drew a circle in the centre for the placement of buddha. Loaded the 3/4 flat brush with white and pink melon and painted the flowers. Added wiggling leaves with classic green and lime green with a touch of white on the lime green side.

Next i painted the daisies with violet and white and added filler leaves.

With yellow and orange, layered a few more flowers and finally gave the creeper effect highlighting the vines.

 I felt the background needed a little more drama. So used dry brush technique with purple flash and painted the background here and there. Love the play of the colorshifts.  To conclude, i took the Craftreat Buddha stencil and white and did the stencil work in the centre. Final painting is ready.
