Elegant Lady Art Board

Just a quick post to share an art board I finished up and delivered to my booth this week!  I found the beautiful image on The Graphic's Fairy page and transferred it directly onto the board using Artisan Enhancements Transfer Gel!

I am finishing up a still frame video of the transfer process that I hope to have ready to share with you later this week!  So many of you have asked about the Transfer Gel and although the tutorials are helpful, I think you will get a better idea of the process when you actually see it happen before your own eyes!

Once I had completed the image transfer, I painted around the image with Old Ochre Chalk Paint® and then applied Artisan Enhancements VP Antico for an aged plaster look.  I then used the Rosy Vine stencil to create a raised relief in areas, also with VP Antico.  

Annie Sloan's dark wax added a bit more depth and patina to the finish and I accented the vine motif with gold gilding wax.

I hope this post leaves you inspired to experiment with some new painting techniques and finishes!  There is just no end to the possibilities of what you can create!

Visit again later this week to see the image transfer process in my next jazzy art video!  See it first when you subscribe to my YouTube Channel and please follow me on Facebook for more project updates!

Best Wishes and Blessings,
