ABSTRACT GRUNGY FLOWERS, Inktense, Pattie's Creations, TTCRD

Howdy from Joi@RR!
I've been "Thinking of You"!

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

Step by Step Instructions 

Just have fun spreading your paint and making 
a background that makes you feel happy!
I used white gesso combined with
DecoArt fluid acrylics and spray misters.

Finished background. 

Add your digi-images with Matte Medium. 

My digi was only half of the flower so I 
printed multiples, cut and paste to make full flowers!
I love it that digi-images are so versatile. 

Do a wash (add some water to your gesso)
over the entire canvas. This makes your
image blend nicely with your background. 

After the canvas is totally dry, add Texture
Sand paste to the inside of your flowers.

Using a pallet knife add modeling paste - 
helter skelter - to the petals of your flowers.

Outline all your images with charcoal. 
I used Derwent Inktense Blocks but you
could use any type of product to outline. 
I was going for a grungy abstract look!

Continue painting - adding white gesso, translucent
white fluid acrylics until you get the "look" you desire.

Trace your sentiment with DecoArt Transfer Paper
and paint with Carbon Black paint.

Below you see the sentiment ready for tracing
as well as some of the left over flowers
that were not needed to make the "whole". 

Here's a close-up look at the grungy texture.

Products Used: 

Lots of DecoArt products
