I have plenty of watercolor and acrylic paint, but needed a some other things, so I took a trip to my local Walmart and picked up a few supplies:
Canvas (didn't want to use watercolor paper for this project)
I've never done a mixed media piece before, nor have I ever attempted to paint a sunflower.
I began with freehanding an outline of the sunflower in pencil, then started painting it with watercolors, adding a bit of background as I went. I used salt in the wet paint to get that texture for the flower.
After it dried, I added more watercolor, drying in between, and then I added some decorative paper with mode podge, some stencils, stamps, lace, etc.
Step 3, Lace
What will happen next? To be continued.... :)
