Go where the Wild Flowers are

Hello everyone,

Hope you are all okay out there.

I have a painting on an MDF plaque for you today.....I know, where's the wood?! This was kindly donated to me by my lovely bloggy friend Amanda so of course it would have been rude not to make something with it of course.

   This is the 'before' picture but this is the reverse side as I'd already started on it before I remembered but you get the idea!
   Background made with all Decoart products, paint was brayered on. A splash of a  Media Mister in White was added after.
Finished plaque with the addition of a Tim Holtz butterfly stamp. All flowers painted with Decoart Media Fluid Acrylic Paints.

Love to Create, Anything Mixed Media/ Creative

All Decoart Paints, Decoart Media Mister, Black Micron and White Signo pens for the detailing. Tim Holtz butterfly stamp from the Tiny Things stamp set. A piece of thick twine added for a hanging and all done.

Hope you like it
