I’ve Been Busy Making Holiday Designs

For someone who can be a bit of Scrooge around the holidays, I had a lot of fun creating these designs. I thought you might like to see the steps of my process.

1.Painted paper with gold & silver high flow acrylics.

2. Used my gel plate with acrylic paint and texture plates to add colors over the gold & silver paint. I chose red, green, purple, and turquoise.
