Hello, everyone! A fun and easy tutorial from me (Lee-Anne) today.  I've had this piece in my stash for a while and wanted to alter it.

Step one:  coat the entire piece in black gesso and allow to dry

Step two:  Apply a mixture of heavy black gesso and soft bead gel through the Bloom Silhouettes stencil (top of the piece) and Old Rose Prints stencil over the plate that had the French wording.  By using the heavy mixture of the two mediums I managed to cover up the wording and change the texture.  Allow to dry overnight.

Step three:  Make up three different colors of "paint" using mica powders and soft gel medium and dry brush the stencilled areas to highlight them.  I also used my finger to add some highlights along the edges of the entire piece.

Other than the drying times, this is a really quick and easy project that allows you to alter pretty much anything.  Hope this inspires you to try something new!
