Claireabelle's Birthday


I made this for Claire from the Lotstodo forum as it's her birthday today - Happy Birthday Claire. The 'C' is another find from Canada, a 6" high wooden alphabet letter. I coated it in black acrylic paint and when dry applied vaseline in various places. I then used 4 different colours of Adirondack Dimensional Pearls to completely cover it. This is one of the techniques Sir Tim uses on his lastest dvd, The Journey Continues. Once dry, I wiped off the paint where the vaseline was, this revealed the black base coat. I covered a thin 5" x 7" canvas, again another find from Canada, with purple twilight acrylic dabber paint and when dry, stuck the C to it and the rest of the tiled letters to spell out Claire's name
