Paint the three pieces with Dixie Belle Paint - Flamingo, let dry.


 
Once dry, lightly paint with Dixie Belle - Glaze Van Dyke, let dry.

 
With Glue Stick cover the leaf with a green pattern paper, cover the oval with a coordinating pattern paper. Sand edges to get a smooth edge.

Supplies:

One of the Madrigal Blossom Collection assortments! 
 
 
 
To start adhere chipboard and lace to the Canvas with Tacky Glue, then set aside to  dry!  Once it has dried apply a layer of White Gesso, let dry. 
 
 For this canvas three additional layers of gesso were added. When totally dry add Prima Flowers.
