That's Spring!

Spring is here, at least in Italy!

I covered a canvas with gesso and before it was dry I dropped Fire Engine Red, Key Lime, Tickle-Me-Turquoise and Opal Shimmerz; with the help of palette knife I spreaded the colors on the background.

I created a small picture inside the canvas, using the stencil with the gesso. I colored it with Tickle-Me-Turquois, Sunflower, Orange Sherbet, Pink and Key Lime Shimmerz with a brush. I used Grape Escape Vibez for purple butterfly and Marigold Shimmerz on the other one.

I brushed Grape Escape Vibez on the edge of the canvas and around the small picture. Many colorful flowers and rhinestones and .... is Spring!

Have a great day with creativity!
