 I had so much fun creating this piece!  I started off by painting in the reverse ombre style starting with Wise Owl Chalk Synthesis Paint in Carbon and blending down to Snow Owl.  I used Smokey Quartz in between the colors to ease into the blending.  You can watch the video I did on the process here.

 Before I started with the embellishments, I did one coat of Wise Owl One Hour Enamel Clear in Matte.  Because of the chalky finish of Chalk Synthesis Paint, I find it’s much easier to apply transfers to a surface that has been top-coated.  Then I started applying the different transfers.  I used reDesign with Prima’s Earthly Delights decor transfer as well as a Hokus Pokus transfer, The Peacock.  Lastly, I used stamps from the Bohemian Florals Clearly Aligned Stamp collection to add designs on various parts of the piece.  For this I used Heävy Mëtals paint in Bronze.  I finished off the piece by lightly burnishing each of the transfers and then applying two more coats of One Hour Enamel Clear for extra protection.
