Hi to all. It’s been a while for me to even be online much. I had a two week holiday in Houston with my son and grandson while my beautiful daughter-in-law was in Europe. I had an amazing time. Unfortunately, the week after I got back I contracted bronchitis. This is not an infection good for anyone, but especially a person that is on oxygen 24/7. I am on the mend, but very slowly. After the injection of antibiotics and my daily doses of antibiotics I should be up and about in a week. Unfortunatly my cough could last 3-4 more weeks. So much fun, especially in the middle of night.
Before I could complete my project I need to get my substrate ready for Marie. My canvas is an 8”x10” stretched canvas. I applied DecoArt’s White Acrylic Gesso. I applied a paper napkin with DecoArt’s Deco-page, and sealed with the same. After drying, I applied several stains using DecoArt’s Antiquing Medium mixed with Americana Acrylic Paints in Terra Coral and Sable Brown. DecorArt’s Antiquing Medium is wonderful. You mix 1:1 and it stays the same consistancy as acrylic paint. As with stains, I wipped down areas with a baby wipe. After all was dry I placed some of the Dimensional Effects sparingly, but I think I covered up the texture it made.
