Easter Tulips with Burlap
Easter is getting closer. In my area, the dogwoods, tulips, daffodils and cherry trees are blooming. What a beautiful sight after such a terrible winter.
I don't have a lot of time recently for anything but CAS cards but when I get the chance, I play in the Mixed Media challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Mix62 was to use tulips with at least 3 kinds of medium-acrylic, Gesso, ink, etc. Last week I was able to combine it with the Free for All challenge-tone on tone. I used white on white, layer to base.
I painted my tulips using Americana Acrylic paint in Napa Red and used Gesso. The burlap stencil is done with the same paint in Camel. The stems are done with Hauser med. green and lt. green acrylic paint.
