To begin I gathered my supplies to decorate my wooden panel (6x6inches). One colour - PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic - Blue Jeans (FF168) along with PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic - Snowflake (FF15) and PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic - Little Black Dress (FF19). To create the pattern I used PaperArtsy Stencil by Tracy Scott (PS307). To see the post showing her newest stamp and stencils released in January 2022, visit here.
Firstly I painted the panel black all over. The stencil contains several 'pie quarter' shapes, which can be used in many ways - including making a full circle. I started each quarter with my palest colour in the middle (Blue Jeans + Snowflake), then Blue Jeans, and finally Blue Jeans + Black towards the edges.
The next step was to create my pattern of stamped images - to go on top of the stencilled panel. I felt I needed to do this BEFORE adding additional colour / highlights to the background - so that I highlighted the correct areas.
Finally I added colour to my stamped images for my focal pattern using the same colour pencils.
These curved stamps are amazing - 4 of them fit perfectly to make a circle and the little flower is great on its own!
