let's have some tea!

I'm a great tea-lover so today I have this teapot to share with you.
No plan, just playing with all those gorgeous Shimmerz colors! :)

The teapot got two coats of gesso first.
I randomly applied the paints and watered them to let them run.

I used these colors:
Shimmerz: Bubble gum
Shimmerz: Sugar Plum
Shimmerz: Pink
Shimmerz: Magenta
Shimmerz: Marigold

When the paint is still a bit wet, I applied some gesso.
Took a tooth-pick and made these fun shapes.
Really love this effect!

The small mini roses were also painted with the Shimmerz.

Another close-up of the paints and gesso.
Love the way the gesso makes little cracks!
This could easily be an awesome background for any project, don't you think!

Enjoy your day!
