I had a spare hour this afternoon and after one of Marta's videos on YouTube, I decided I would give a silhouette project a try.
I started with a seven inch square base which I taped down to the work mat and I applied several shades of blue acrylic paint (I used DecoArt but any acrylic paint will do) to form my background... and then once that was dry (and I had no patience so used a heat gun) I began with black acrylic paint and a fine brush using Marta's video tips as a guide.
I tried really hard not to think too much as I was working and soon became engrossed in what I was doing... and it was really relaxing. I spent a lot more time on the tree than I expected but it was all good fun. I definitely will try this again and will of course try to develop it further...but for today it was an hour well spent.
Until next time
