DEER HAVEN at SUNSET Painting: Designer Post TTCRD Magazine

Hello from Joi@RR!

We have lots of deer at the ranch and they are 
so lovely to sit and watch at sunset.

This project was done on a 12 x 12 wood panel.

Step by Step Instructions 

This is just a plain piece of plywood. 

With Matte Medium, apply your background papers.
This beautiful paper came from a set called:
The Nature of Christmas by Decosse's Dynamite Doodles.

When your paper is completely dry, cover with
a satin varnish to protect it as you paint.

Begin painting. This shows the numerous colors
used to complete the sunset in this painting.

I decided to snuggle up the little cabin under the
gorgeous trees. I sketched it in and began painting.

I used Prussian Blue Hue as the first layer 
of the evergreens too. In the end, they had
about 5 layers of paint and a layer of snow!

I fussy cut the deer from another lovely piece of 
Decosse's Dynamite Doodles paper from the
Nature of Christmas Set. They were applied
with DecoArt Media Matte Medium. 

What fun it was to add DecoArt Snow Writer
to this project. It gives such great dimension!

Here are a few close-ups!

After all was completed, the project was varnished
with DecoArt Media Gloss Varnish. 

Products Used: 
Lots of DecoArt Media products!
Dynasty Brushes.

The lovely paper that I used is from: 

Lisa offers digital prints, digital sentiments,
scrapbook kits, embellishments and she will
design a blog badge for your group too.
