Wall Plaque

This started out as a 6 x 6 inch plain piece of wood. I covered it in white gesso and then added the various colours of acrylic paint. I added the paint by stamping it onto the wood using an acrylic block, a technique I picked up from Wendy Vecchi. I then added the red stripes of acrylic paint using the edge of an old credit card. I stamped the butterflies quotes and swirls to finish it.

So amazing, Jackie. Those red stripes are the perfect contrast to the soft greens and yellows. Love it!
