Flowers by Debs Wainwright


Hello everyone Debs here joining you today with some flowers.

Here's what I did

There are a number of photos so get yourself a cuppa, sit back and enjoy!

Step 1 - using sprays with mica in I sprayed the board and let the paint run and drip and run. I dried it with a heat tool and then using a Dinky stencil I added some interest.

Step 2 - using more Dinky stencils and ink I added to the background, build depth. Once I had finished I dried it and then gave it two coats of Matte Medium as I wanted to seal the sprays as they are still reactive to water.

Step 3 - I have been drawing flowers since I was a little girl and in particular this design. so thought I would have a go at carving it out. I also carved some leaves. (Unfortunately I didn't take any photos of the stamps). I then used white acrylic paint with the stamp to give the flowers a light base to work from. I also painted in some stems.

Step 4 - I started to colour my flowers with Gelatos. Building up the layers with reds, pinks and white for highlights. I also started on the leaves.

Step 5- I finished off the flowers and stems adding yellow to the centres, and then outlined the flowers etc in a black water soluble Pencil to bring back the edges.

Lastly I gave the board two coats of gloss sealer. You do have to be careful as you do this because the pencil is water activated and can causes lots of black smudges.

What I used

Stabilo Pencils
