I began with a blank MDF cross shape which I painted with black gesso.
I then layered fabric over the painted cross and began adding in embellishments. I used lace, buttons, flowers, metal embellishments and other bits and pieces I had lying around. Once I was happy with the result I painted everything with black gesso.
Using Viva Inca Gold paints I then began adding on the colour. This is the part that I struggle with the most. I am still learning how to get the colours on properly and how to try and keep the colours crisp and not muddy. Practice makes perfect they tell me so I will have to keep practicing. In the end I used the emerald green and the deep blue with a light dusting of gold mica powder in light gel over the top.
