Today I have a short and sweet project. A Nature themed project, in our color of the month, GREEN!!
I am making this project for a "secret someone" and I had a very specific idea in mind. I hope you will forgive me this time, for personalizing.
I wanted to share it with you anyway, as it mostly in green and the techniques I am using will work with so many of the available AP products that you could make several of these in varied themes and colors. They make great gifts, just sayin'
Here I have chosen a nature themed paper and aligned all 3 canvases. I glue paper to the canvas. This one is from my stash but here are some other great papers that would work perfectly for this type of project.
Next, I mix molding paste with green acrylic paint and brush it through a stencil in random places on the canvas. I'm looking for messy here so the shapes are very blurred. I let this dry and it gives a little texture.
Next, I use some chalk paint in random dabs (using fingers here), to give another texture/finish and more interest.
I use a watered down off-white and some brown acrylic paints, to flick a spray of paint droplets to give some depth. Now I spray with Maya Road Espresso Brown mist and smudge around to give an antique look finish.
I add some real moss pieces here and there and finis!

I hope my "secret someone" will like it. See you in a couple weeks.
Happy Valentine's Day Y'all!
