Iris Babao Uy also used a Crafters workshop Template on her page. She used Chevron TCW227.
Heres what she said about her process....
"I used a watercolor paper as my base.
I first mixed Gesso and Clear Granular Gel. I applied this mixture on top of the stencil. Lift the stencil and let the mediums dry completely. You can help with a heat gun. After the mediums have dried, mist the watercolor paper a bit with water. (This will prep the paper for the glazes)
I then took two colors of Luminarte Silk Paints (Pomegranate and Mediteranean Blue) and added the colors one by one, and then blended the colors in some areas.
Let this dry again.
To add more violet and blue tones, I splattered some distress stains and rubbed some areas with distress inks in tones of dusky blue and violets.
Finally I added some acrylic ink drips for more visual interest. "
We are looking forward to a year of Crafters Workshop....arent You?
and this permanant sponsor......
