More of something ......

Hi everyone.  How's your week going?  I am sharing the next couple of steps of my mystery item. Some of you have been guessing,  and sort of getting there - it is a frame of sorts, and that is all I'm giving you for now :-)

I got messy in the craft room and got out the acrylics paints.  But first, I did put a second layer of tissue on "it" and then once dry I gave the whole "thing" another coat of Gesso.

Using a wet sponge and acrylic paints, I started adding colour to my project.

The first colour was Cream and I sponged all over with this colour, to give good coverage, but very subtle change.

Next I added Yellow Ochre - dabbing the sponge all over the object - but not rubbing it at all.  I did pat it a little with some paper towel.

To finish off, I did a Crimson red and Deep Yellow mix, and then finished off with a little more Yellow Ochre.

That is the painting finished.  Now I have the fun of embellishing it and finishing it off.  So, I will be busy doing that over the next few days, as well as getting some DT stuff completed.

Still a ways to go yet, however I am hoping to have this finished by next Wednesday at the latest :-)  I hope you will continue this little journey of craftiness with me.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.
