Feathers by Deb Antonick

  • Basecoat the board with a coat of DecoArt Multi-Purpose Sealer mixed 1:1 with Lamp Black. Let dry. Sand lightly.
  • Basecoat with Lamp Black. Let dry.
  • Brush a few strokes of Bahama Blue. Up and down and side to side.
  • Brush Electric Pink in the same way.
  • Brush Sour. Apple in the same way.
  • Brush with a little Snow “Titanium” White here and there between the colors to lightly blend. I like the choppy look.
  • Let dry.
  • Load the makeup sponge with Lamp Black (or Paynes Grey) and quickly sponge over the feather stamp to load, then quickly stamp the background. Reload and repeat until background is covered.
  • Paint the chipboard Heart dreamcatcher with a coat of Gesso.
  • Paint the heart with Electric Pink and feathers with Bahama Blue and Sour Apple. Stamp over the 3 feathers with a one of the feathers from the Slim Feathers stamp.
  • Shade with Paynes Grey. Float a highlight on the heart with White.
  • Paint the strings with Lamp Black. Dot the “beads” with Electric Pink, Bahama Blue and Sour Apple.
  • Shade the outer edges of the surface with Paynes Grey.
  • Stamp a piece of paper with the Hope Sings Rubber Stamp using the inkpad. Cut or tear the edges. Drag the inkpad around the edges of the paper to add a bit of black to the edge.
  • Adhere to the project surface with DecoArt Matte Medium (or Matte Varnish).
  • Float tints of Raw Sienna for an aged look.
  • Finish the side of side on the art panel with Paynes Grey or Lamp Black.
