A Right Pair


Had a play with a couple of tags and love how they came out. I have no idea how many layers there are as I just kept going until I was happy with what I had. I did challenge myself though to only use the three primary colours from the DecoArt media range, Primary Magenta, Primary Cyan and Primary Yellow. However, I did also end up using everlasting from the chalky finish range.


I also used black gesso to stencil in the skull and the word.


And I flipped the stencil over and used black gesso to stencil through.


Close up of the layers and the stenciling and the stamping.


You can see from this close up all the different colours that came through from only using the three primary colours. I also slightly bumped the stencil to get a shadow.


Again more of the stamping and stenciling. I outlined the letters in black pen.
