Hello and Thank you for popping in to visit.
I thought I'd share a quick tutorial with you.
An altered album I did this week.
There are plenty of leaves falling off my tree, so I gathered a few and used them on the cover of the album.
I covered the board with Jo Sonja All Purpose Sealer and let dry.
Use Burnished Copper and a stiff Hog hair bristle brush and dry brush technique, paint this over the leaves and board.
I made some areas like the leaves and edges heavier.
Do you know what Dry Brush Technique is? Load the brush with paint, wipe it all off on a clean, dry cloth. When you can no longer see paint coming off the brush onto the clean towel, then its ready to apply to your painting.
I also applied the same colour and technique over the back of the board.
When I was happy with the covers, I painted them both with a couple of coats of Jo Sonja Decoupage Varnish.
This is a heavy, durable Water based, Gloss Varnish.
Perfect for this kind of Art.
I hope you've enjoyed this tutorial, please feel free to share it with your friends and blogging buddies.
