For my background I adhered some paper from an old dictionary and covered using TCW9007 Clear Gesso. Then I used my fingers to apply the following paints – Funky Fuchsia and White Linen Dylusions Paints, JBurrows Acrylic Paints – Magenta, Light Blue, Bright Aqua Green, Fluro Orange, Fluro Pink, Fluro Orange and Fluro Purple.


I added some stamping to the background using Darkroom Door Paint Splats and also stamped my title using VivaLasVegaStamps Art is Anything – Andy Warhol along with black archival ink.


To finish off the background I added some stenciling using stencils by The Crafter’s Workshop. First I used TCW202s 6×6 Mini Harlequin with Dylusions Paint – White Linen. Then I applied Dylusions Paint – Black Marble and a Fluro Yellow acrylic paint through TCW754s 6×6 Distressed Details stencil.


Now for my Dusty Attic chipboard – I lightly covered the Paint Brushes #2 and Mason Jars chipboard with TCW9001 White Gesso and then used some Distress Crayons to colour. The crayons I used were – Broken China, Brushed Corduroy, Chipped Sapphire, Candied Apple, Black Soot, Lucky Clover, Wild Honey, Mowed Lawn, Spiced Marmalade and Ripe Persimmon. And I used my finger to blend the crayons.


For the lid of the mason jar I used Prima Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint – Silver spoon and Dusty Attic Clear Gloss Varnish. You will also notice I have cut the paint brushes and adhered them to the Mason Jar.
