Hi there,

Tanja here - today, I would like to share the step-by-step tutorial for this home decor piece with you:

  • apply Dina Wakley Heavy Body Acrylic Paints (Lemon, Magenta) mixed with Acrylic Glazing Liquid to your Gelli Plate using a brayer
  • cut the panel to size and color the texture paste with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors
  • ink up the edges with Distress Ink (Picked Raspberry) and Wendy Vecchi Archival Ink (Watering Can) 
  • apply Distress Paint (Dried Marigold, Wild Honey, Mowed Lawn, Picked Raspberry) on a piece of corrugated cardstock and ink up the edges with Distress Ink (Picked Raspberry)
  • mat the panel on this background
  • color two Big Chat Stickers with Distress Ink (Spiced Marmelade, Picked Raspberry) 
  • add little dots with Dina Wakley Heavy Body Acrylic Paint (Sterling) as final embellishments

I hope you got inspired.
