White Poinsettia DecoArt Canvas: DT post for Through the Craft Room Door Challenge

Hello from Joi@RR!

What to do with a simple poinsettia?
Make it unique!!! 

This project was done on a 18 x 24 wrapped canvas.

Step by Step Instructions 

Just begin painting. 
No plan - just light and loosely adding the background.
I used my fingers, several brushes and lots of layers.
Just go wild and have fun!

After your background is dry... add your
image to the canvas with DecoArt Media Matte Medium.

After the image was totally dry, the entire
piece was covered with a white gesso wash.
Just water down the gesso and paint.

Begin to decorate your canvas!
Add some leaves, some branches, and some texture. 

The DecoArt Media spray mister is wonderful
for adding vivid but transparent colors as is 
the Metallic Lustres. 

And here it is after the first go round. 

Still more paint to add...

And then... it was done!

After all was completed, the canvas was varnished
with DecoArt Media Satin Varnish. 

Here are a few close-ups. 

Lots of fun texture!!!

Somehow I have never been in love with a solid 
red poinsettia. I always hunt for the unique one.
Today - I'm happy. I have a unique poinsettia
that will live for a long long time!! Xj.
