USArtQuest & a StencilGirl Hop


Hi Friends. 
It is Hop Time with StencilGirl and USArtQuest this week.

I made more art for my granddaughter's baby room.
How could I resist!

Here are the supplies I used....
An 8"x10" canvas from the art store....
Art Paper by USArtQuest....
Traci Bautista's Double Zinnia stencil.....
Chipboard letters from my stash.....


First thing I did was cut some pretty floral Art Paper to fit the 8x10 canvas board.
Mod Podge to glue....
Then gessoed over the whole thing...
Then the paint and glaze through the stencil.
Play Play Play!


Layering the Magenta, Orange and Bright Yellow Perfect Pigment Paint
mixed with the Perfect Glaze
gave the piece a beautiful textured look.
The Perfect Pigment Paints are intensely colored!


Chipboard letters painted white and glued down...
a little shading here and there...
then some doodling around the edges to finish it off.


I love how it turned out!
More wall art for my Sweet Pea's room!


Hope you enjoyed the first day of this Two Day Hop.
Check out tomorrow's artists too!
Leave comments on all the blogs for more chances to win.
