Shows stencil work using the DA bubble stencil, & translucent paste. Once the paste died I painted the stencil work with the LuminArt-Heavenly white H20. I primed all of the chipboard with clear gesso, except for the snowflakes & Icicles I primed them with white gesso....
I painted most of the chipboard with clear crackle, then once the crackle dried, I painted the pieces with the LuminArt-Heavenly White, or the liquid pearls-robins egg...I also painted the flowers with the heavenly white, for shimmer...
I applied the snow texture (using a brush), & sprinkled on glass glitter on to the wet glitter. I did this on to some areas of the chipboard & on to the flowers...
