I created this 12x12 piece for a friend. I prepped the canvas with Gesso then used modeling paste over stencils I have (sorry don't remember who's they are. Once dry I used Tim Holtz ADIRONDACK® COLOR WASH in Wild Plum, Denim, Meadow and Lettuce to create the background fade. I sprayed water and used a baby wipe to get the spotted effect. After this dried I used a General soft charcoal pencil to detail and shadow. I used my green Pit pen to add some extra grass blades. The words where written on paper, distressed with a bit of Burnt Sienna watered down and then applied with matte medium. A bit of charcoal pencil around the edges to frame the picture a spray of fixative and it was done.
