Live your Dream

This is a huge mdf tag which measures approx 14" x 7". I put some white modelling paste through parts of a 12" x 12" stencil.

Once dry, I painted it with tinting base.

Painted it with dark grey and then medium grey media paint and wiped back.

I added some colour using the media paints.

Put a coat of whitewash over the top to mute the bright colours.

I stencilled through the image with white chalky paint and then filled the whole space in.

Once dry, placed the stencil back over the top and stencilled through with black gesso.

I didn't like the way the head went on the right hand side, so I filled some of the white in with grey.

I added some more stencilling and some stamping in the background.

I touched the butterfies up with turquoise and purple metallic lustres. 

And a final photo outside in the sun.

All products are from the Decoart range.
