I began by applying a thin layer of gesso to the blank canvas with an old credit card, scraping off the excess. When the gesso was completely dry I painted 2" lines of DWM acrylic paints. I started with Ruby Red.
I continued with Lime, Turquoise, Lapis and Lapis mixed with Berry Violet and White.
When all the words were dry I inked the edge of the canvas with StazOn Midnight Blue. Now I just need to put a small metal hanger on the back and it is ready to go.
Thanks for joining me today. I'll be back next Tuesday with more stenciling ideas to try. In the meantime, enjoy what is left of summer. I noticed today some of the local orchards have opened for apple picking. Amazing! Pie time. Take care ~ Renee xx
