May Flowers by Samantha Read


Hello, well I can't believe how fast May is passing me by and those April showers did indeed bring many blooms this month, which I'm really loving. So to celebrate nature and her lovely colours I made this tag..

What I did

I started by applying some texture paste through a stencil on to a long tag followed by a coat of white gesso when dry, when the gesso was dry I applied a coat of crackle glaze and again that was dry I painted using teal and metallic patina paints. I then heat embossed some white flowers for the background and stamped the girl, flowers and text on to white card and coloured using watercolour paints and pencils. Finishing touches include glossy accents on the raindrops, brolly and boots, highlights with a white Posca paint pen and some shading using a grey gelato.

What I used
