Here is the final Project picture. Sorry the photo is warped!
Step one, coat one piece of cardboard with matte medium on one side and paint on the other. With the other piece of cardboard draw your outlines for your second layer.
I coated the cutout with gesso and white paint because of the tape on it. The other side was coated with matt medium beforehand.
While that dried, I stenciled the background of the bottom layer. And being somewhat new to stenciling, I learned that you don't use soft body acrylics and ink to stencil! I wiped the mess off and used two red shades of heavy bodied paint.
Starting to lay in colors.
Putting it all together with heavy Gel Medium
Have a great night! Do some art!
