The design would be great painted on old cutting boards as well. It’s great to sell finished, either online or at your local craft fair. Enjoy!

About Karen

• Light Buttermilk DA164

I have loved art since I was a very young child. I remember getting an art set from Santa when I was 8, that was the beginning. I always wanted to be a cartoonist, so my style of painting is usually whimsical, but I still paint other styles when the mood hits. I travel teach but have spent most of my teaching time in Italy, which is now my second home with lots of people I love very much. I have authored many books, patterns and magazine articles. Just when I think my creative mind is sucked dry, it starts in again! I love sharing the love of painting with everyone!

Painting World Magazine Deepen the shading using Honey Brown. Highlight using Snow White.

N: . IO CE U IT ED OD R L TA EP GI T R DI O N

DO

Complete this process until you’ve done the entire cabinet. Let it dry. Antique the cabinet using Graphite and a large flat brush. Load as if you’re shading, but with a little more water than paint. Apply it to the cabinet until you have the desired look. Allow all layers to dry between coats of floated color. Spray the entire cabinet with Matte Varnish to seal it. Let it dry, and then repeat.

Crock:

Shade the background area using Cashmere Beige, and let it dry. Deepen the areas around the design using Honey Brown.

Painting Instructions: Cabinet:

Stain the cabinet using the Oak Stain and a large brush. Apply it to one area at a time, and then gently rub the wood so you have an even shade.

If you want your cabinet darker, use multiple coats, but once you do the antiquing with the Graphite, it will be much darker.

Float the crock color using French Grey Blue. Shade with Milk Chocolate. Deepen the shading using Deep Midnight Blue.

Let the paint dry, and apply the swirl design with Deep Midnight Blue. Deepen the shading in the upper opening using Lamp Black. Dry brush the highlights over the swirl design and the center of the rim with Snow White.

Doily:

Base the doily using Light Buttermilk, and let it dry. Shade using Desert Sand.

Apply Snow White detail lines, dots, and strokes, and let them dry.

Firkin Pail:

Float the color using Desert Sand, and let it dry. Apply cracks and wood detail using Milk Chocolate. Let the paint dry, and then shade with Milk Chocolate. Deepen the shading using Dark Chocolate.

Helpful Hints:

Use the round brushes to basecoat. Use the 5/0 script liner for painting large vines and highlight strokes, the 20/0 for fine detail lines, and the 10/0 for cracks and details. Use the 1” flat wash to apply the finishes to the cabinet. Use the 3/4” flat wash and the shaders to float color, shade, and highlight. Use the fabric round to dry brush highlights. Use the mops to blend floated areas. As you paint, refer to the pattern for shading (////) and highlights (::::), as well as the close-up photos. When floating a color, I like multiple layers of light coats. I feel this method gives a much softer end color.

I want to pass along my love for watercolors by making a fun project that you can frame or use as a card. I added a little mixed media to make the highlights and snow inside the globe.

• Dr. Ph. Martin’s Bleed Proof White™ ®

Loew-Cornell® Brushes: • #4 Round • #10/0 Liner

Miscellaneous Supplies: • Paper Towels • Pencil

• Light Source (i.e. a light box or window) • Water Container

• Mr. Clean® Magic Eraser® • Hair Dryer (a heat tool makes the paper curl) This is what I used. Feel free to substitute brands of paints and brushes.

About Laurie

I pretty much dabble in everything from watercolors to sketching, from photography to mixed media, and occasionally oil painting. You name it, I have at least tried it! I don’t remember a day that’s gone by when I haven’t “crafted.” Some might say I have an addiction to anything creative. I have fallen in love with watercolors. I love showing how working with them doesn’t have to be stressful - just fun. Adding a Micron® pen brings in a whimsical element.

Supplies:

• Canson® XL® Watercolor Pad, 140lb Cold Press

Paints:

• Grumbacher® Deluxe Transparent Watercolor 24-Pan Set #WCT24 November 2016 Issue

I use a piece of Mr. Clean® Magic Eraser® to erase mistakes. Dampen the sponge, squeeze out excess water, and lightly rub away any unwanted paint mistakes.

Preparation:

Cut the watercolor paper to 5” x 7”.

Instructions:

With a pencil, lightly transfer the pattern onto your watercolor paper by using a lightbox or by taping them to a window.

Using the #4 round brush, dampen the background area around the globe with clean water, letting it fade down to the base of the stand. Using Cobalt Blue, add color to the dampened surface. Keep the left side next to the globe darker.

Dampen the background again. Add Ultramarine Blue to the left of the globe and a bit to the right hand corner, keeping it light. Let it dry. (Figure 2)

Paint the base of the globe and the dowel with Raw Umber. (Figure 3) When they’re dry, use the tip of your brush to add a layer of Van Dyke Brown to the outer edges of the globe base, and darken under the ribbon and where the dowel goes into the base. Once it’s dry, you may need to do it again. (Figure 4) Give the berries and the bow a wash of Permanent Red. (You’ll add the highlight at the end using Bleed Proof White.) Let it dry. (Figure 5)

Dampen each berry individually, and shade the bottoms with Carmine. Shade the inside of the bow and the tails with Carmine. If you get an area too dark, dampen it with water, and lift the color off with a tissue or paper towel. Another way to lighten an area is using the damp Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.

It’s time to do the hat, bird, and heart the same way. (Figure 6)

Dampen the whole inside of the globe with clean water, going around the bird, snowman, heart, and scarf. Add Ultramarine Blue to the damp background, having it darker on the right side. Let it dry. If it’s too light, repeat this step, and let it dry. (Figure 7)

Once it’s dry, dampen under the eyes, and add a touch of Vermillion for the cheeks.

With the liner brush and Black, add the snowman’s eyes and mouth, the bird’s eyes and beak, the wire holding the heart, and the coal. Use Vermillion for the nose. Use Raw Umber for the twig arms. Use Burnt Sienna for another shading. Using the liner, add a bit more color on the hat (behind the brim), the bird’s underbelly, one side of the heart, the bottom part of the berries, the inside of the bow, and on the ribbon tails behind the bow.

For the first coat for the wooden base and ground, dampen the surface, and add Flesh Color. When it’s dry, add Indian Red. When that’s dry, add Van Dyke Brown to darken them. (Figure 9) You can use white gesso for the snow, but Bleed Proof White is wonderful. Sometimes you have to add a bit of water to thin it down. Don’t thin the whole bottle; just dribble a bit of water in, and stir the top layer of paint.

Snowman:

Using the 10/0 liner, paint the scarf using Yellow. Paint a few of the pine needles in Yellow.

Add a hint of Yellow Green to the scarf and pine needles; get up close to the berries. (Figure 8) Next, add Green Oxide of Chromium lines to the scarf and to the pine needles.

November 2016 Issue

Time to work on the snowman! Dampen the body, and add a hint of Ultramarine Blue, heavier at the base and under the scarf. (On the head, it will be next to the scarf and a bit under the hat.) Also add a bit of color to the bottom of the snow in the globe.

Add swishes loosely around the inside of the globe to show where the light is reflecting. Add dots of white for highlights on the snowman’s eyes, and on the coal. Highlight white on the heart and the berries. Flick a bit of snow inside the globe.

Now that it is all dry, you can erase your pencil lines carefully and gently. Sign your name. You’re finished!

Helpful Hints:

When stenciling this type of project, where you’re only using portions of the stencil rather than the entire stencil design, it’s easiest to use Painter’s or Stencil Tape to mask off the stencil’s open areas that you don’t want paint to go through.

Background:

Basecoat the canvas in Antique White using the 1” glaze wash brush.

Stenciling:

Tape the stencil firmly in place. Hold on to the long, thin end of a wedge sponge and pat the large, flat end into the color. Pat the excess off on the palette, and pat over the open images on the stencil. Applying color too heavily will cause bleeding under the edges of the stencil. Allow the paint to dry, then pick up the stencil.

Dampen the canvas very lightly with clean water. Using the 1” glaze wash brush, wash all the edges with Pine Green, making it a little heavier where you stenciled the green gears. Repeat the entire process with Blueberry.

Transferring the Pattern: Lay tracing paper over the pattern. Trace all lines except those used to denote shadows. Shadow lines are generally short, straight lines. Main lines are where you make color changes. Detail lines are facial features, patterns on fabric, etc. Lay the tracing on the surface, and tape the top and one side. Slide graphite paper between the tracing and the surface, and draw over the main lines only. You will apply detail lines after finishing the basecoating.

Calligraphy with Painting World Magazine

a Paintbrush by Margaret Riley calligraphy and helped in transcribing biblical records and events.

My mother had beautiful penmanship - fancy looking letters with curlicues, and a nice flow to her writing. Every day, I try to mimic her writing, but she had her own special style! I love fancy handwriting, and when I discovered calligraphy in my late teens, I knew I wanted to learn that skill. I bought a kit, and practiced until I had mastered it enough to add nice lettering to some of my painted projects. Calligraphy is an ancient art, and can be found on the walls of caves and of Egyptian tombs. The Romans contributed the first November 2016 Issue

You can find many articles on the history of calligraphy in your local libraries and on the internet. But we are going to learn a simplified calligraphy to aide you in creating elegant lettering on your special project.

I started out with an inkfilled-cartridge pen. Some people used to have calligraphy nibs that went into a handle end. These, you had to dip into ink, with care not to overload the nib.

The industry came up with markers with felt flat points in various sizes to use. I’ve taught classes with these, as I felt they were best for a beginner. There are calligraphy practice papers available on the market that you can use to learn the slant and spacing of each letter.

let’s try using a brush! There are many brushes out there designed for calligraphy writing… some cheap, some very expensive.

I usually use a new flat brush (not an angular one). Depending on the size of the surface, I chose a flat brush that will create lettering sizes in proportion to the project and the writing/lettering.

Before you begin, practice on a piece of canvas paper or calligraphy parchment for the placement of your letters. I use a white chalk pencil to draw on my lines. Draw a

Once you feel comfortable with a pen of your choice, and have practiced a lot,

I like using black paint on most projects, and I put a small amount out on the palette to always have nice, fresh paint to dip into.

Just as important, it is imperative that you have a crisp ending point as you lift your brush to complete that stroke.

Dip the flat brush into the paint, being careful not to overload it. Brush back and forth on the palette to get an even distribution onto the brush.

Many, many evenings have found me practicing calligraphy one letter at a time. The key is memorizing each letter, and practicing over and over until you have it mastered. I am fortunate to be able to look at a letter and copy it once I have learned the basics.

bottom line and top line to get the height of the capital letters. Next, draw another line between those two lines to use for the height of the lowercase letters.

Always keep the flat side of your brush at a 45-degree angle, being sure never to turn your brush from that position. (See next page for a demo!)

The nice thing about using a white chalk pencil is that you can easily remove it with a moist paper towel when the lettering is finished and completely dry. (For removal on paper, lightly moisten your finger and rub it across the parchment to remove the chalk.)

Gather up your painting supplies (paint, brushes, palette, water container, paper toweling, etc.) and your project to do calligraphy on.

Start your brush just touching the surface, and apply pressure to achieve a “fatter” area in each of your letters. Turning your brush and standing it more perpendicular to your surface will achieve your small lines.

When you come to the end of your brush movement, start lifting your brush slowly to have a clean end to that line. It is important that you keep the brush at the 45-degree angle at ALL times. Pulling and pressing down your brush for the thick part of the letter will make your letter look professional.

Pro Tip: Watch the many online (and free!) YouTube presentations to learn about calligraphy!

Go to a library, and check out a how to do calligraphy book, or purchase one from a local bookstore or online.

I like the modified calligraphy version, and, after many years, can do each letter with ease and an even flow. I am still practicing Old English calligraphy, and need to have my instruction booklet close at hand. Wishing you the best in a world of calligraphy! And remember… practice, practice, practice!

Tip #1:

When using a stencil smaller than the surface you wish to cover, stop short of where the stencil ends, on a fully outlined element. Pick the stencil up and move it over the next area, lining up the design. This way, you will not create a rigid line in your design.

Tip #2:

• DS123-3 DuraClear Soft Touch Varnish

You can clean your stencils and brushes using hand sanitizer. Squirt sanitizer over the stencil, and gently rub with the brush bristles. It will clean both at the same time. I suggest you clean the stencil immediately after you’re done with it.

Tip #4:

When basecoating, make sure to remove the water from your brush; you want a “damp” brush, not a wet one.

Tip #5:

Clean off unwanted paint from areas immediately using a clean, damp brush.

Preparation:

Basecoat both canvases with two coats of Eggshell. Let them dry.

Crown and Brim: Helpful Hints:

N: . IO CE U IT ED OD R L TA EP GI T R DI O N

DO

Place your stencil over the canvas. Using a deerfoot brush loaded with Wasabi Green, gently scratch over the open stencil areas. Do this in a “hit and miss” motion.

Remember, we are not pouncing color directly on - we’re creating a variegated look. Start with a light touch, and press a little bit more as you start to run out of paint. Let the paint dry while you’re cleaning your stencil. When it’s done, trace on the line drawings.

Instructions: Silhouettes:

Basecoat the dark areas with Soft Black, leaving both hats, her ribbon, and his hatband and ascot uncolored.

Also, pay close attention to the fact that I have left the graphite lines “paint free.” Consider them your line of separation, meaning DO NOT paint over them. No worries if you do/did. You can put them back in with Eggshell and/or Wasabi Green using a liner brush later. It may take two coats. Let dry.

“Mary”:

Hat Trim:

Add fluffy trim to the left side of the hat with Warm White and Neutral Grey. Double load the #4 deerfoot brush so that the Warm White is on the toe (long hairs) and the Neutral Grey is on the heel (short hairs). Pounce these colors from the edge of the brim to the left side of her face with Warm White always to the outside and Neutral Grey next to the hat. Let it dry.

Basecoat the crown and brim (the red areas) in Petal Pink. (Figure 1) Then apply two coats of Deep Burgundy. Dry between coats.

Using the 3/4” wash brush, shade these areas with a sideload of Antique Maroon. Refer to the photo for color placement. (Figure 2)

I clean the mop brush as I use it by lightly scrubbing it on a damp paper towel, and then drying it on my pant leg. This way it’s always clean and dry.

Create more depth by adding narrower sideloads of Black Plum in the darkest areas, like under the brim, against her face, and the back (right) side of the front brim and crown.

highlight area in a back and forth motion, creating a jagged edge to the back-to-back float. This gives the illusion of silk fabric threads. Let the paint dry completely.

For the highlight, pre-wet the crown. Sideload the 3/4” wash brush with Cadmium Red, and apply a back-to-back float.

With this same color and technique, apply a highlight to the top of the brim on a diagonal. Refer to the photo for color placement. (Figure 3) Apply a sideload of Cadmium Red to the outer edge of the under-brim. You may have to apply a second coat of this same color in the same places and in the same way. Let the paint dry.

The final step to this area is to wash it with Deep Burgundy, to tone down the Fiery Red. (Figure 5)

Ribbon/Bow:

Basecoat with Hauser Light Green. When the paint is dry, transfer the ribbon/bow lines onto your surface. (Figure 1)

The first shading is with Avocado sideloaded on a #14 flat. Refer to the photo for color placement. The second shading is Plantation Pine. Keep this color tighter and in smaller areas. (Figure 2) Highlight the ribbon and bow with Wasabi Green. Use a sideload when working against the edge; use a dry Moon brush when working in the center of an area. (Figure 3)

Add a second application of Wasabi Green to punch up the highlight. Refer to the photo for color placement. (Figure 4)

Using the #4 deerfoot brush, pick up Warm White, and add a touch of highlight to the existing fluff to the left. On the remaining “unpainted” fluff area, load the brush with Neutral Grey and pounce it on.

Highlight with a pounce of Warm White to the top of the Neutral Grey areas. Don’t cover all of the Neutral Grey, though! Refer to the photo for color placement. Trace on the Holly Cluster. You don’t need to trace the berries at this time.

Evaluate your ribbon. If any of the shade areas got milky from the Wasabi Green highlight, go over them with your shading colors.

Holly Leaves:

Punch up the highlight areas even more by applying Olive Green over the Wasabi Green. Make it a smaller, more concentrated area. (Figure 5)

Using a flat brush, add shading of Midnite Green to separate leaves with a sideload technique. Place this color on each leaf that is going behind another. Refer to the photo for color placement. When the paint is dry, erase all lines. (Figure 6)

Bavolette (fabric frill at the back of the neck): Basecoat with Eggshell. Let the paint dry completely.

Do the first shade with a sideload of Light Avocado using the #14 flat. When it’s dry, apply sideload highlights of Warm White. Add a second application of Warm White if needed. To create more depth, add a second shade of Avocado. Keep this small and contained to the deepest, darkest areas. Refer to the photo for color placement.

Base with 2-3 coats of Light Avocado. Trace on the lines of separation.

Using the dresden liner, add center veins with Midnite Green, and let the paint dry. Apply a sideload of the Midnite Green to one side of the center vein. Let the paint dry.

Highlight with a sideload of Hauser Light Green where the line is against a dark value. For parts of the leaves that are adjacent to light/medium values, like the hat ribbon, apply a sideload of Midnite Green to that area. Using the moon brush, pick up some Hauser Light Green and

Using the dresden liner, create side veins of Midnite Green. Using the same brush, outline some of the highlighted areas by lining them with Olive Green. Sharpen the dark tips with Midnite Green. Trace on the Berries for the next step.

Berries:

Using the #4 round brush, apply a basecoat of Petal Pink. Let it dry. (Figure 8)

Sideload the #10 flat with Deep Burgundy. Add a “C” stroke to the bottom left area of each berry; if the berries touch, add the color to the berry that is in the back, behind another. Cover about 2/3 of each berry. Refer to the photo for color placement. Let them dry. (Figure 9) Repeat the “C” stroke with a load of Black Plum, but this time only cover 1/3 of the area.

Using the #10 flat, make a small “C” stroke highlight on the upper right quadrant of each berry with Fiery Red. Let them dry. Wash over them with Deep Burgundy.

Evaluate your holly. If you need to lighten or darken any areas, you can go ahead and do it at any time. This includes adding more Neutral Grey to the fluff against the left side of the hat brim.

John’s Hatband and Ascot:

DO

Using the #12 or #14 flat, apply a basecoat of Neutral Grey to the underside of the hat. I used a #4 round to basecoat the brim with two coats of Neutral Grey. Let the paint dry.

Brim and Trim:

With the same #4 round, apply a wash of Neutral Grey across the hat brim. Wipe your brush off on a paper towel.

Pick up some Warm White on the dirty brush, and create the edge of the brim. Add a small sideload of Neutral Grey on this brim with the round (or a very small flat). Refer to the photo for color placement. (Figure 11)

To reinforce the crown, double load your 3/4” wash brush with Warm White and Neutral Grey. Start by drawing the brush down with the Warm White on top of the center of the Warm White area; walk it towards the outer edges. Wipe off the white, and then pick up some of the Neutral Grey. Start against the outer edge, and walk it toward the highlight. Let it dry. With a liner brush, pre-wet the brim trim. Wipe excess water off onto a paper towel. Pick up Warm White, and run it over the trim, placing it in the middle (in height). Let it dry completely. Reinforce the “high shine” area with a second application of Warm White. Line it up with the highlight on the crown. Shade the hat with a brush mix of Neutral Grey + Soft Black. If needed, add a touch

Deepen the shaded areas with sideloads of Soft Black. Round out the edges of the brim trim with a sideload of Neutral Grey; reinforce with a tiny sideload of Soft Black. (Figure 12)

Using a #14 or smaller flat brush, sideload a brush mix of Neutral Grey + Warm White. Apply this mixture across the bottom of the underneath side of the front brim (the area touching his forehead). Also apply it to the small underneath area on the left side in a 1/2 bullseye technique. Add some of this mixture to the bottom ridge of the trim as well. Refer to the photo for color placement. (Figure 13)

Texturizing the Hat:

Load the stencil brush with Neutral Grey. Begin pouncing in the Neutral Grey area of the top hat, walking the color toward the highlight, and then toward the shading. Wipe the brush on a paper towel.

Pick up a touch of Soft Black, and add it sparingly to the Neutral Grey areas of the top hat, keeping it closest to the shaded area. You can do the same with the Warm White, keeping it toward the highlight area. If you lose the medium value gray area, put it back in with the same technique using Neutral Grey.

Basecoat with 2-3 coats of Hauser Light Green. Let the paint dry. Transfer on the fold lines. (Figure 11)

Do the first shading using a #12 or #14 flat sideloaded with Light Avocado. Apply this to the right and left sides of the hatband. Walk the color out the same distance as you did with the shading in the gray area. Let it dry, and then go back and repeat with the same color.

Add a shading of Light Avocado to the ascot. Refer to the photo for color placement. (Figure 12)

When they’re dry, add a design to the ascot and hatband. You can transfer my design, or create your own. I did my little strokes using a #1 liner brush and Wasabi Green. When the design is dry, go back over the shaded areas with Light Avocado to set the design into the fabric. (Figure 13)

Using a flat brush, pre-wet the ascot so that it is just damp, not dripping. Apply Hauser Light Green using a #4 round in the highlight areas. The color should soften automatically. Add a second application if it disappears. Highlight the hatband with Hauser Light Green by pre-wetting the band and using the back-to-back technique with the #14 flat brush. If you cover your design, tap some of the paint off, or replace the details in that area with a lighter value. Let the paint dry.

Deepen the shading with a sideload of Midnite Green on the outer edges of the hatband and in the deepest, darkest areas of the ascot. Typically the deepest, darkest areas are shaped like the letter “v.” Let the paint dry, and add Deep Burgundy dots.

Finishing:

Make a second highlight of Olive Green by prewetting the hatband and doing a back-to-back float of this color. Keep this color in line with the white highlight on the body of the hat, being mindful of this highlight’s width as well. Let the paint dry. Refer to the photo for color placement.

Spray or brush on 2-3 coats of varnish. I use DuraClear Soft Touch.

Photocopy or cut out “Mr.” and “Mrs.” to the size you want, to fit under the metal plates. Punch small holes in the canvas for the brads. Push the brads through, and split them to secure.

Add highlights of Olive Green on the ascot in the same manner you did the Hauser Light Green, only in smaller areas. Refer to the photo for color placement. Allow the paint to dry.

About Kelly

Hello from Indiana! So far, I have graduated with a fine arts degree and worked in advertising. For the last 19 years, I have traveled the US, teaching and exhibiting in the decorative painting market. I’ve designed over 500 pieces for publications, such as books, articles, and pattern packets, and have taken more than 10,000 photos. I became an international artist with my first e-course (which involved more than eight different countries). I enjoy creating in acrylics, mixed media, colored pencil, and watercolors. And I’m still excited to be creative every single day!

Some things you might not know about me: I have a very curious nature, and work best by moonlight. I create because I have to. I’m inspired by the details, and excited by nature. I chase the muse everywhere, and I love a challenge. November 2016 Issue

Miscellaneous Supplies: • Spreader or Credit Card • Doily (paper or plastic) or Your Favorite Round Stencil • Snowflake Stencil • Black and White Graphite Paper • T-Square • Dictionary and Sheet Music Book Pages • Palette Knife • Tulle Scrap (to use as a stencil) • Plastic Cling Wrap

Changing the car to your favorite color is easy. You just need a dark and a light value of the color you choose. Substitute those in the places where I used Rookwood Red and Santa Red.

Preparation:

If the board is dark in appearance, you will need two coats of Gesso. If it’s light in appearance, only one coat of Gesso will be necessary. (Figure 1) Cut the music sheet to fit (approximately 10 1/2” w. x 7 7/8” h.) I used the leftover to create the top 3/4” strip.

Rip the dictionary page down to approximately 3 1/2” w. x 5 5/8” h. I cut the top edge straight.

Cover the surface with DecouPage, and lay the large music sheet in place, straightening it with the T-square. Using the credit card, start smoothing the sheet from the center out, ensuring good contact and no bubbles. Do the same for the strip above. When they’re dry, apply a layer of Decou-Page over all the paper items. Apply one coat of Gesso when it’s dry. (Figure 2)

Mix a large puddle of Driftwood + Faux Glazing Medium (1:2). Also put out a quarter-sized puddle of White Wash. Get a piece of cling wrap ready.

Dip the 1” brush into water, and then into the glazing mixture. Apply it quickly over the entire surface. Pick up White Wash, and apply it at the bottom. While it’s wet, lay cling wrap on the surface and smoosh the bubbles down. Lift and smoosh until you are happy with the overall look. Dip your fingers into water and splash it onto the surface. Let this sit for a minute, and then blot it gently with a paper towel. (Figure 3)

Apply Decou-Page to the backside of the dictionary page, place it, and smooth it using the credit card. When it’s dry, apply a layer of Decou-Page over the top.

Figure 2

Apply the glaze mixture from above over the words you do not want to see, and then pounce a crinkled ball of cling wrap on top to add texture.

When the surface is completely dry, lightly transfer the design with black graphite paper. Test it to make sure you can see it with the patterned background.

Basecoat with one coat as follows: the car is Slate Grey, the wheels are Soft Black, the tree trunk is Raw Umber, the canister edges are Graphite, the canister middle is Raw Umber, and the front tree base is Flesh Tone.

Painting Instructions:

With Raw Umber, shade the canister middle, add tree holders to the car, and shade the front tree base. With your liner and Raw Umber, add shading lines to the car. (Figure 4)

Figure 3

With Soft Black, outline lines on the wheels and lines to the canister outside (the metal parts). Dot the wheel centers with Slate Grey. Add White Wash lines to the car. Highlight the canister outside with Slate Grey. Add lines to the canister outside with Soft Black. (Figure 5) Deepen the inside edges of the car windows with Soft Black. Highlight the canister outside with Slate Grey + White Wash twice, getting smaller each time. Brighten this with White Wash.

Shade the canister inside with Soft Black. When it’s dry, use the chisel edge to create lines with Soft Black in the shadow areas and Milk Chocolate in the highlight areas. Brighten the highlight area with a chisel edge of Milk Chocolate + Flesh Tone.

Highlight the tires with Slate Grey + Soft Black. Shade them with Soft Black. Highlight the centers with Slate Grey + White Wash, and brighten them with White Wash. Float the car with Rookwood Red. (Figures 6-7 next page)

Use your liner to dab in the patches of color with Rookwood Red first, and then brighten with Santa Red. In the gray areas, dab in Graphite. Go over the white lines with White Wash to brighten just the edge of them. (Figures 8-10 next page) At the base, float on the snow with White Wash twice. Using the tulle, 1/4” DM stippler, and White Wash, apply the texture to the white area, keeping it brightest at the base by the canister.

With the 1/4” DM stippler and Driftwood, apply the tree at the bottom. With the same brush and a mix of Antique Green + Graphite, apply the tree on top of the car. On the white tree, use the liner and White Wash to pull lines until you’re satisfied. Add dots of White Wash to add sparkle.

With the 1/2” DM stippler brush and White Wash, add your favorite round stencil or doily image right across from the car image. To create the softer edges, dampen the brush, blot it dry, and then load only half of the brush. Pounce it on the palette to remove excess. With the paint next to the doily edge and the water away from the edge, begin pouncing the brush up and down. When the outer edge is complete, fully load the brush, pounce away the excess, and then begin pouncing the entire inside area of the stencil.

Figure 5

I added various sized snowflakes everywhere with the 1/4” DM stippler and White Wash. Add circles to look like snow with your liner and White Wash. I also added a couple of these over the painted car still life. With Modeling Paste and your palette knife, add various sizes of snowflakes to the design one at a time. When you’re finished, wash the stencil immediately in warm water with a toothbrush.

Figure 6

Finishing:

Spray varnish on everything with 2-3 light mists of Matte Spray Finish.

On the green tree, mix Antique Green + White Wash to add lines for the branches. Add more White Wash to the mixture for the dots of sparkle.

Paint the background trees at the horizon line with the liner and Charcoal Grey. When they are dry, dampen the area of the sky at the top of the trees with clean water. Using the small scruffy brush and French Grey Blue, tap in the foliage. The damp surface will help soften the foliage into the background.

Buildings:

Basecoat the barn and the stone house with Raw Sienna. Do the board lines and the shading on the barn with Burnt Umber. The opening to the barn door and the windows are also Burnt Umber.

Add a bit of Warm White to some Raw Sienna to lighten it a bit. Use that value to detail the windows, and to streak some highlights on the boards of the barn and the broken down barn door. Detail the brick house with the #3 round to dab on various colors of bricks using Burnt Umber, Heritage Brick/Flesh Tone, and any brush mixes of those colors. Do the chimney similarly.

Painting Instructions:

Trace the patterns. Basecoat the painting surface with Grey Sky.

Transfer the patterns, omitting trees, fences, and details on houses.

Sky:

With the 1” wash, float French Grey Blue to the top of the sky(s), walking the color down, and mopping to soften. Using the same large brush, float Flesh Tone from the horizon line up into the sky. November 2016 Issue

When that’s dry, float a mixture of Flesh Tone/Heritage Brick (1:1) at the horizon line (over the initial layer of Flesh Tone). Don’t walk this color out as wide as you did for the first. There should be two values, with the second, darker value at the bottom.

Referring to the color photo for placement, float Flesh Tone in the sky to form the clouds. Float Warm White next to them, and brush mix it into some of the Flesh Tone to add dimension to the clouds.

Basecoat the windows with Zinc. Trim them with a mixture of Grey Sky/Zinc (1:1).

The door is Charcoal Grey, trimmed with the same mixture you used for the windows. Float Burnt Umber to shade under the roof and along the bottom, and to divide the sides of the house (refer to the photo). Basecoat both roofs with Zinc. Float Warm White snow to the

Basecoat the beige house that’s partially seen in the background of the brick house picture with Warm White/Burnt Umber (3:1). The roofline is Burnt Umber, as are the horizontal board lines.

Varnish the paintings as desired. I hope you have enjoyed this project!

Shade under the roof with Burnt Umber. Add a Warm White snow line to the top of the roof. The chimney is Raw Sienna, with a couple of Burnt Umber bricks added.

The windows are Charcoal Grey. The door is Burnt Umber. Detail the door with a mixture of Grey Sky/Zinc (1:1).

Snow:

Float French Grey Blue to form the snow mounds. Then, float Warm White several times to the tops of the mounds to lighten and brighten the snow.

Paint the fences with Burnt Umber, with Warm White snow.

Paint the rocks with different values of gray, using Zinc/Warm White/a touch of Charcoal Grey. Add a touch of this dark gray mixture to Warm White to make a highlight color, and use it to add contour to the rocks. Pull up sprigs of grass with thinned Charcoal Grey on the liner.

Large Trees:

About Linda

Linda Akin moved from the small town of Floresville, Texas to Central Ohio in the heart of Amish country. She discovered a passion for painting in that time. She picked up all of her grandmothers paints, brushes and books and decided she would give it a try. It all started with a gourd a brush and a book. With that gourd a snowman came to life. She took it to the neighbors where it turned into orders. With encouragement from friends and family an artist was born. She always liked taking art in school and doodling but that all turned into a gift kindling inside.

Repeat this step on the other end. Wipe off any of the paint that may have bled through to the back of the stencil. This will prevent it from carrying over to your next portion.

For the front, tape the stencil to the front of the drawer at an angle. Using the #8 stencil brush, apply the Carbon to the part of the stencil that covers your drawer. Allow it to dry.

However, if it is your first time, just use a sanding block or sandpaper. I used 120 grit.

Take the Olde World Numbers stencil and tape it to the drawer. Apply your “No.” word and a number. I chose 7; you can choose whichever suits you. Allow all of the stenciling to dry.

Sanding and Distressing:

You can use sandpaper sheets, a sandpaper block, or an

Take your sanding tool of choice, and go around the edges of the drawer, letting some of the natural wood come through. Do all of your edges and corners. Then, sand over the painted parts of the drawer, going with the grain of the wood (left to right, or vice versa). Distress as much paint off as you are happy with. I like a lot of distressing; others do not. It is completely up to your comfort zone.

Then, I took a piece of canvas to cover the center, and staple gunned it on. Once that was all on, I took burlap and went around the seams with a glue gun to cover them up with the burlap.

Once my lid was complete, I placed my hinges on the back of the drawer, and then attached the lid to the hinges. I attached the heavy-duty top plate to the bottom four corners of the drawer, and then attached my legs.

Innovative Corner

with Debbie Cole, CDA

Faber-Castell® was established in 1761, and has been a cornerstone of fine art products ever since their formation. In 2011, they launched a new brand called Design Memory Craft®, which has very innovative products that can be “Mixed and Matched” together for painting, paper crafting, and general crafting.

At the heart of this new brand and their Mix & Match program are the

Gelatos® pigment sticks.

Nothing on the market compares to Gelatos. They’re available in dozens of colors, which can be used alone or combined to an infinite array of colors.

They’re a creamy-smooth, highly pigmented medium that comes in the form of a water-based stick. The tubes and sticks resemble tubes of lipstick, but perform

like blendable watercolors. You can easily blend them with or without water and can add them to any porous surface, including paper, canvas, chipboard, wood, fabric, ribbon, journal boards, and many others.

While you can apply them directly to a surface and blend them, you can also apply them to palette paper, and then brush them onto a surface. This allows for blending to create new colors, and various other techniques. In addition, the pigments are so vibrant that you can also cut and place them into a spray bottle with water to create custom mister colors.

Faber-Castell has developed a complete Design Memory Craft Mix & Match program, including many essential tools and accents to aid in using the Gelatos. The tool kit includes everything you need to create beautiful Gelatos mists and to use the Gelatos with their mediums.

The kit comes with a unique palette knife, two misting bottles, a drip dropper, and more. You can use the palette knife both to cut the Gelatos and to spread the mediums.

The Gesso is matte and opaque, making it a very versatile medium. You can use it to prime surfaces for watercolor, create

texture, lighten color, and make them more opaque. Because of the opaqueness, this medium is perfect to create white stamped images or to cover up mistakes. You can tint it with the Gelatos and use it to paint, or thin it with water to create a more semitransparent application of color.

The Glaze medium is

transparent semi-gloss. It seals surfaces with a beautiful, shiny sheen, adding depth, light, and dimension. It helps seal the Gelatos to make them permanent colors. You can also tint it with the Gelatos to create transparent glaze colors. Another use is to load it into a brush, and then onto Gelatos that are on palette paper to create a sideloaded application of color.

The Gel Medium is semi-gloss

and translucent, making it ideal to seal the Gelatos colors once you’ve applied them. You can also use it for extending color, adding sheen,

Similarly, there is also the Texture Gems Ice Liner, which is a clear gel liner.

This is a fun medium that adds transparent, shiny dimension to images within a design.

Helpful Hints:

Don’t rush the brush! This box is papier mache, which is usually a nice surface to work on. It absorbs paint easily, so you might need more than one coat. You can dry it with a hair dryer, or let it air dry. Spray the box with the Gloss Sealer/Finisher before splattering it with paint and stenciling on it, just in case you need to wipe off any mistakes!

Float the bottom of each letter with Ultramarine Blue, and then with Deep Midnight Blue. Let them dry. Using a black, fine-tip permanent marker, outline each letter.

Flag:

Spray the lid with the Gloss Sealer/Finisher. Let it dry.

Then, use a 10/0 liner to paint a highlight with Chartreuse on the side of each stenciled leaf.

Dip a large berry maker into Melon, dab on the berries and let dry. Then dip into Primary Red, dab on and twist lightly to shade the berries. Add a tiny Titanium White highlight on each.

Birds:

Paint the birds again with Primary Red using a #2 flat. Paint the wings with a mixture of Primary Red and Melon. Paint the beaks with Pumpkin using a 10/0 liner. Add a tiny dot of Lamp Black for the eyes using the small tip of the stylus.

Snow Texture:

Using a palette knife, or a tool of your choice, apply a little SnowTex to the snowman’s hat, the top of the flagpole, and along the twig.

Position and tape the Snowflake stencil on the box, and randomly stencil the snowflakes and stars with Titanium White. Use a small stencil brush with most of the paint rubbed off, and stencil the snowflakes where you think you might like them on your piece. (Figure 8)

Using a splattering tool (or an old toothbrush) dipped into a thinned down Titanium White paint mixture, splatter the top of the lid.

Bottom of the Box: I found this to be the fun part of this project. Take your time to do this part.

Spray the sides of the box with the Gloss Sealer/Finisher.

Paint the stripes on the flag with a 10/0 liner and Primary Red. Paint the square section with Ultramarine Blue using a #2 flat. Paint the pole with Burnt Sienna. Paint the tiny star with Titanium White. Using a #2 flat, paint the twig with Burnt Sienna.

Holly:

About Terry

Terry started painting in the early ’80s at a shop in Redlands, meeting up with her sister halfway so they could do something together. She is a charter member of Orange County Tole and Decorative Painters and Pacific Coast Artists in Southern California. She recently began teaching at Chapter Paint Ins. She currently lives in Southern California with her husband.

• Water Bin • Paper Towels • Tracing Paper • Graphite Paper • Circle Template • Small Ruler • Pencil • Stylus • Large Clipboard • Painter’s Tape

Preparations:

Surface:

• 12” x 18” (1/4 yard) Off-White Canvas Duck Cloth, available at Hobby Lobby® or JoAnn Fabrics® November 2016 Issue

Miscellaneous Supplies:

Cut your panel to 12” x 18” – that will give you an inch to turn under and hem to 10” x 16”, which is the finished size. Not a sewer? You can use Iron-On Hem Tape, or glue it.

Helpful Hints:

I like to tape the panel down to a large clipboard, and leave it there until it is finished. It makes a great lap desk (very portable), and keeps the panel secure as you work on it.

Once you’ve hemmed the panel, secure it to the clipboard. Center and transfer all of the main pattern lines, including the collars, eyes, and noses.

Instructions:

Time to start Inking. I like to ink in the eyes and noses first, being careful to ink around the highlights. We will make the highlights even brighter with the White Paint. Ink in the outlines of all of the dogs, the bone, and the lettering. Solidly ink in the tufts of hair on the cat’s chest and top of his head. I like to use the fatter tip on the pen to make the outline a heavier line. (See image on next page) Basecoat the collars with Shimmering Pearls Golden Yellow mixed with a little Transparent Medium to make the paint flow easier. Base the cat with Canary Yellow, and do his eyes with Indian Turquoise. Do not paint the inside of his ears. Let’s talk design… Anyone who has painted with me knows that I like to embellish and change

up my projects to suit me. I encourage you to do the same. If you want a different pattern on your cat and dogs, go for it.

I call the cat PJ, because I had some pajamas like that growing up. I used the ruler, and drew vertical lines on his tail, front legs, and head, and horizontal lines inside his ears. I then checkered in the remaining body and ears. Do the tallest black dog with the circle template. Note the ear and nose where they attach to, or overlap, the body; I left a sliver of the background showing to help define the ear and nose better. I inked in all around the circles, collar, and eye.

Do the dog at the far left with the circle template, inking the center circles in solid. I added black dots here and there, and did vertical lines in the insides of his ears.

Do the second dog from the left with a ruler. Ink horizontal lines on the body, legs, and tail, and vertical lines on the head and ears. The dog behind the cat has somewhat form-following, repetitive lines. Add extra dots on the dog’s body, ears, and tail. The dog on the far right has a four-petal flower pattern, with black dots added here and there. His tail is solid black.

Highlight the light areas with a little White drybrushed on for added dimension.

I pulled in some grass and dots to help ground them. I glued the panel on the tote bag, and added some buttons and gemstones on the collars.

I added trim across the top of the bag, and used the metal clips to hold it in place until it was dry. Lastly, I let the bag rest for a day or two, and then lightly sprayed it with the KIWI Camp Dry. Spray to help waterproof it.

Ah, how lovely to find your sweetheart underneath the mistletoe! I wanted to create a colorful, whimsical scene that would remind us of the joy of those we cherish during Christmas, and all times of the year. This piece incorporates just a touch of Mixed Media, and is so much fun to create.

About Sharon

I’ve had a love of drawing, painting and crafts since I was very young. I supplied shops and did many craft shows. However, I kept leaning towards decorative painting and finally got the courage to give it a try and I have never looked back! I sell finished pieces on Ebay and lots of painting patterns on Etsy. I was extremely honored When asked by Terrye French several years ago to paint for her in what would soon become “Painting With Friends”. I owe her so much gratitude and miss her so much! I am designing on my own now, and I love whimsical and primitive designs. I only wish I had more time to paint! Outside the painting world, I am married with two

Preparation:

Preparation starts by creating the background. The first thing we need to do is to lay down a solid layer of basecoat. I actually used Soft Heather for this, as I wanted a light, bright background, but not necessarily a white one.

Once the basecoat is dry, gather your misters (White, Red, and Yellow Green). You may wish to create a place to spritz your misters (i.e. lay down paper towels). They do tend to mist everything in sight, but they are so much fun to use! Hold the misters above your piece – not too close.

Painting World Magazine You may use your stylus, if you wish, to create the Warm White dots on her scarf. Shade around all the outside edges of the scarf with Espresso. Finely outline the scarf in Black.

N: . IO CE U IT ED OD R L TA EP GI T R DI O N

DO

Dry brush both deer over their entirety with Cocoa. Continue to use the same drybrush without rinsing it. Add Cashmere Beige to dry brush the highlights around their noses, under their necks, around the inside edges of their ears, and on their cheek areas.

Helpful Hints:

Any time during the instructions that I mention to “finely outline” something in Black, you can choose whether you want to thin your paint and use a liner brush to outline, or simply use your black marker(s).

Randomly spritz them, alternating colors as you work (some areas more red, some more green, etc.), and use your White mister to cover the entire plaque. Also, use your water mister to spritz the surface with water, to create more “flowing” and “blending” of colors. This step is not necessary, as it is all in regards to the look YOU want! Simply play with your misters to create the look you desire.

Deer:

Start by basecoating both deer with Sable Brown. Add a second coat if necessary to achieve a solid coverage.

November 2016 Issue

Float both of their cheeks with thinned Tomato Red to create a blush. Solidly base their ears in Cashmere Beige, and dry brush them with Warm White. I shaded with Cocoa down the center of the inside ear and along the edge of the ear.

Do both of their noses in Black, with a small, Warm White accent mark as a highlight. Do both eyelids and eyelashes in Black as well. I did the fine curlicue in each ear with the black pen/marker.

Let this all completely dry. Just to be safe, I did spray-seal the plaque at this point to assure that the floating and shading of paint wouldn’t affect the background. Once that has dried, you will be ready to transfer your main design. (Figure 1)

Painting Instructions:

Continue by adding just a bit of Warm White, and dry brush to enhance the areas around their noses and ears. Also dry brush this blend above each eyelid.

Shade both deer around the entire outside edges with Espresso. Finely outline both deer in Black.

On the female deer, shade a fine line of thinned Espresso where the curl on her forehead would be. Once that’s dry, outline over the curl with thinned Warm White. Basecoat her scarf with an equal mix of Hauser Medium Green and Irish Moss. Once this is dry, dry brush it with Irish Moss by itself, and then dry brush it again with Olive Green as a highlight.

For the male deer, first base the holly around his neck with an equal mix of Kelly Green and Hauser Medium Green. You may need to apply two coats to each leaf.

Once this has dried, dry brush each leaf with a bit of Irish Moss, and then again with just a touch of Olive Green added to your same brush, to add a bit of highlight. Shade around all the outside edges of the holly leaves with Espresso. Finely outline all the leaves in Black. Draw the berries first as circles, using your black marker, and then dot/fill them in with your stylus using Tomato Red.

Also, on the male deer, you will need to shade heavily with Espresso where his antlers will be. Once this is dry, go over the antlers with your black marker or pen to define them. (Figure 2)

Heart & Mistletoe:

The strings and bows holding the heart and the mistletoe are done the same way. Simply thin a bit of Kelly Green, and line where the strings will be. You can dab this back a bit with a soft cloth if it looks a bit too bold. Once it’s dry, finely outline your strings with your black marker or pen.

Painting World Magazine In that case, let me give you those instructions now.

Once you have figured out the placement of your words, simply add Decou-Page to the back of each paper word, and place it on your plaque. Once they’re dry, shade around all of the words with Espresso to help them blend in with the rest of the piece. You may also finely outline them all with your black pen or marker, as I did with this project. (Figure 4)

N: . IO CE U IT ED OD R L TA EP GI T R DI O N

DO

Basecoat the heart with Rookwood Red. You may need to apply two coats for solid coverage. Once it’s dry, dry brush the heart with Tomato Red. You can add a bit of Warm White to the same drybrush, and highlight the upper right-hand corner of the heart as well. With thinned Warm White, you can add an accent mark to the same general area.

Shade around where the mistletoe leaves will be with Warm White. With your black marker or pen, line the stems and leaves of the mistletoe once your background shading has dried. Now, fill in the leaves with Wasabi Green. Once the leaves had dried, I lined a few lines through each leaf with Olive Green to add a bit more color. Finely outline the berries with your black marker or pen first, and then dot each berry with Snow White. (Figure 3)

Snowflakes:

Simply use the snowflake stencil and your Snow White paint to place a few snowflakes randomly on the plaque.

Words:

There are two directions you can go with the words. You may decide that you would rather paint the words on (or use your marker to put the words on the plaque). Or, you may decide to put the words on the plaque in the manner that I did here. November 2016 Issue

First of all, I spray sealed the plaque again at this point with a couple coats of Americana’s Matte Spray Finisher, allow drying time between each coat. Once the plaque is dry, you can proceed with preparing the words to add to the plaque.

Prepare a piece of parchment copy paper (or any type of 8 1/2” x 11” scrapbook paper if you plan to run the paper through your printer) for use with the misters by spraying it FIRST with a light coat of sealer. Let this dry completely. Lay the paper down in an area where you can use your misters. Use the same misters that you created the main background with, and lightly spritz them on the paper. Be careful not to drench your paper; you just want to use light spritzes here, and there is no need to add as much as you did when you were spritzing your background. Let this dry completely! You may want to lay a heavy book on top of your piece of paper to prevent it from curling. Again, this is mainly something to keep in mind if you will be running your paper through a printer.

After picking fonts of your choice, type out the words for your plaque. Place the prepared piece of copy paper into your printer, and print your words. I used “curvy” scissors to cut the words out with.

Finishing Touches:

These finishing touches add an extra special glitz to this project.

Add Limelight Glamour Dust Paint to the female deer’s scarf, as well as to the mistletoe leaves.

Add Sizzling Red Glamour Dust Paint to the heart and holly berries. Once the holly berries had dried, I also added a tiny dot of Liquid Glass to each one. Add Liquid Glass to the heart and to the berries on the mistletoe as well.

Add DuraClear Gloss Varnish to each snowflake, and sprinkle them with Glamour Dust Glitter while they are still wet. Do one snowflake at a time. I also added DuraClear Gloss Varnish to each of the deer’s noses for a shiny effect. The last touch that I added was to dry brush around the entire outside edge of the plaque with Warm White. This helps to frame our sweet deer. I certainly hope you enjoyed this project! There was just a bit of Mixed Media involved to make it really stand out.

Painting World Magazine The first dry brush coat should allow some of the background to still show through. Additional colors should cover less area than the first coat does.

Basecoat:

Clean the brush as best you can on your old towel, and then pick up the next color. Apply it in the same manner using less paint.

Note: Refer to the color photos for shading and detail placement.

I am approaching mixed media as a decorative painter.

Although I am listing the products I used and my process, I encourage you to use what you have on hand and to have fun creating. You can use any paper, stamps, or stencils that you have; it is all about creating layers and textures. You can purchase these items at your local dollar store, craft store, department store, etc. For information on the DecoArt Media products, please visit the DecoArt Media website at http:// decoart.com/mixedmedia/. They also have great how-to videos on all the products I used.

Surface Preparation:

Unless otherwise stated, I seal all my surfaces with one coat of Multi-Purpose Sealer. Let the sealer dry, and then sand it lightly.

Dry Brushing:

Matte Medium:

I mention in my instructions that I coat the entire surface with the Matte Medium after applying the papers. This step will seal the paper and the surface, making floating color so much nicer and easier. And, you will be able to wipe off any mistakes quickly.

Fluid Acrylics:

I have used a lot of the DecoArt Mixed Media products in my projects. I just love the vibrancy of the colors.

The brush must be dry. When dry brushing, I load my paint from a dry surface. I don’t load it from a wet palette, as the moisture will get into the brush and make the paint go on smudgy. I also keep an old towel handy; it is great for cleaning the brush between colors.

In most cases, I am using them as tints and for shading. You can replace these paints with your regular DecoArt Americana colors if you choose. When using the Fluid Acrylics, you only need a very tiny drop on your palette.

To start load the brush by tipping it into the first color. Blend it out on palette paper, and then wipe the excess paint off on a paper towel. Lightly scrub the surface to apply the color.

Stamping:

Use the brush on its side, and scrub side-to-side or up-and-down. Start soft, and then press harder depending on how much color you need. The harder you press, the more color you will get. November 2016 Issue

Use a permanent archival ink pad; I use StazOn. I also use the paints by brushing a thin layer of paint onto the stencil and quickly applying it to the surface. Clean your stamps with a baby wipe after using them.

Float/Shade:

I always float my color with angular shaders. Mop to soften the float.

Use the brush that best fits the size of the area you’re going to paint.

Preparation:

Seal the surface with MultiPurpose Sealer. Let it dry, and then sand it lightly.

Cut the light blue script scrapbook paper to fit the surface. Coat the surface with a liberal coat of Matte Medium. Quickly lay down the paper, and pat it into place with the brush. Smooth out the paper with a brayer or an old credit card to adhere it into place and remove any bubbles. Let it dry.

Brush a light finish coat of the Matte Medium over the entire surface to coat the paper. Let it dry. Paint over the paper with a very light wash of Aqua Sky. Let the paint dry.

Trace on the basic pattern lines. Trace the big hat onto the black snowflake scrapbook paper and cut it out. Adhere the hat in place with the Matte Medium. Brush over the entire surface again with a thin coat of Matte Medium. Let it dry.

Apply a very light wash of Media Cobalt Turquoise Hue and Media Cobalt Teal Hue over the entire surface for light tints of the blues. Add more of the Cobalt Teal Hue tints onto the hat. Let the paint dry.
