After painting the background with big strokes of acrylic paints in greens, purples, blues and some splashes of white...and letting it dry ...

I added the words "Marché Aux Fleurs" 
(flower market) with the stencil and the creams..top right

step 1;
place stencil in desire position
secure stencil on canvas with tape, cover the other words (with white papers)

step 2;
sponge the cream with a make up sponge over the letters "Marché" with Gold/champagne metallic Lustre
remove stencil,

step 3;
clean with a baby wipe that word.
repeat process with the second word "Aux" with blue/turquoise cream
clean with baby wipe
repeat process with the third and last word "Fleurs",
remove stencil,
clean it

step 4;
outline the words with a black "Copic" pen

see the shine of the creams
that I added here and there on the canvas too...

trick: I colored the silver rhinestones with "Copic" marker in blue!

paint the large word "Paris" with acrylics

photo on the left;
place stencil, secure it
dab with a stencil brush (picking on the side of the photo) the word "Paris" with pansy color,
let it dry
then dab only the sides with purple to give a 2 tone effect..

TIP: always when picking up paint with your brush, dab it on a paper towel before placing color on the project, to take excess paint and avoid running paint underneath the stencil...

photo on the right;
remove stencil and voilà! the 2 tone effect!

Note: at this point WASH the stencil, the baby wipes are a quick method. but when done I recommend to wash the stencil with mild soap and water
(SEE POST how to clean your stencils HERE)

This is a 12"x 12" canvas placed on a 19"x22" white frame (intended to be used for an "advent calendar") But I used it here to create my "Floating" canvas...

I hope you push yourself 
by using more often your paints

I did not use any difficult technique...
just give some strokes right, left up and down!!! 
and embellish the whole piece with these gorgeous flowers!

maybe try on a smaller piece
 if it feels too intimidating...


Thanks for the visit
