Layers of paint, tissue, stenciling and collage came together to make this 10 x 10 commission. Between glitterhouses and stitching, I haven't worked on a canvas in a while and I really enjoyed this piece.
The design in the foreground was created using a paper doily as a stencil. The doily along with embossing paste was used to create this look. You might notice the diamond pattern stencil in the background; that's my other favorite stencil.
A little bit of sketching on the rose helped define the edges.
