Step 1 and 2
Crumple white tissue paper in your hands, then spread out to size of your canvas and adhere. This will automatically give you texture, make sure there is matt medium (glue) on top of your tissue layer as well as underneath. Dry.
Choose your acrylic paint colours and use a sponge to blend over the textured canvas.
Glue some transparent paper to background. Use a stencil for the vase and flowers. I have used a stencil by Donna Downey. Use white Gesso for flowers and modelling paste for vase. Using your palette knife or scraper, scrape a little modelling paste onto background here and there.
Using your scraper add a line to your background, scraping towards the bottom of canvas in a few places. Block in your flower shapes in desired colours. Fill in your vase with white gesso, adding green stems to flower bouquet.
Add leaves using a filbert brush and add white acrylic paint to flowers using the edge of the filbert or angle brush for petals.
Add a darker colour for flower centers. Use a liner brush to add white details to vase.
Using a Tim Holtz floral stencil add Modelling paste through the stencil for added dimension. Stencil the word "she" using Paynes Grey acrylic colour and adhering scrapbooking stickers to make up other wording. With a small makeup sponge add Burnt Umber to edges of canvas to give an antiqued effect, also paint the canvas edges in this colour. Add a coat of matt sealer to protect your work.
