mood-board

  • Step 1:
    • Paint your canvas in a dark, contrasting colour.
  • Step 2:
    • Place the stickers on the canvas in any position that you like.
  • Step 3:
    • Start painting blocks of colour around the stickers, in a lighter or contrasting shade to the background. Fill in the empty spaces between the blocks by painting your own embellishments e.g. hearts or flowers. Vary the colours of the blocks but do not cover the background colour completely.
  • Step 4:
    • Layer the paint colours over the stickersin such a way that you create depth and texture –while still allowingthe different coloursto showthrough. When you are satisfied with the colour of the blocks –peel the stickersoff.
  • Step 5:
    • Using a dry brush technique, brush some lighter colour over the words and the blocks to soften the edges and blur the words somewhat.
  • Step 6:
    • When the paint is dry – seal your painting with a water based sealer to protect and give it some shine.
