Recently my Father-In-Law passed away. This has been especially difficult for my adult kids. I found a photo of my In-Laws with my oldest son when he was in high school. They all looked so happy! I painted a Crescent Photo Mat Art Board to showcase the photo.
This is how I created the background.
1. Prepared the surface with yellow, white, and tan acrylic paints
2. Masked areas to create a diamonds and painted with acrylics
3. Coated the entire piece with DecoArt Media Antiquing cream... This can be scary, but when it is removed with a damp cloth, it leaves a wonderful patina. Just for fun, I then added stripes and roughed it up a bit with inks.
The Heart and Soul Flower Die from Eileen Hull's new Flower Party line. I used the same antiquing process for some of the flower pieces.
Making these flowers has been so much fun. I seriously cannot get enough.
