For this blog hop, I decided to make a simple abstracted landscape painting using Mary's map stencil, Wood Icing texture paste and Golden Acrylics on 3/4" medium density fiberboard.
|Prepping the boards with gesso.|
|Applying first thing layer of Wood Icing texture paste.|
|Applying second layer of Wood Icing using Mary's Map Stencil. Isn't her stencil just lovely?|
|Pulling stencil away.|
|I added a little thread of texture with the Wood Icing and a small pallet knife. I also added two layers with Mary's Stencil, just to see what would happen.|
|I added a thread of Wood Icing with a small pallet knife and I added some extra free form texture in the top half of the painting.|
|Time for color!|
|And we are finished!|
|I made two so I could give one to one lucky commenter and so I could give one to Mary.|
