I started by giving the canvas a coat of gesso, and i then i randomly splodged on some Decoart black paint. Using a few different coloured gelato's, i scribbled them on......blending them with my finger as i went along.
My twins are always asking me why i don't have my name on my work like they do at school........so i drew my nickname Lelly with white gelato on the background. You can just about make it out!! It kept them happy!!
The flamingo was painted black and then a layer of Decoart crackle glaze with antiquing cream rubbed into the cracks. I gave the birdie a wee crown to finish her off.
Using Decoart triple gloss and a stencil and spatula, i added some texture to the canvas in random places. Once dry, i went over the top with some gelato colours. I then added some strips of washi and fabric tapes.
I painted the mini plaques, and stamped the wording on. The little words were just stamped onto scraps of canvas.
I love these flamingoes........reminds me of the TV programme Miami Vice! Do you remember that? Or am i getting old? ;)
Thanks for reading.
