Hi everyone! Melissa here with my take on our artist trading block.
I painted my block with white gesso, then black acrylic, then a coat of glossy accents.
I felt that the chipboard and doilies I put on the block perfectly complemented the theme, and era of the images.
I painted all the chipboard with gesso, then turquoise Viva Color Precious Metal Effects. I didn't need gesso on the doilies,and I also painted them in turquoise. On some chipboard I added a little bronze paint, stickles, green Lumieres, and/or diamond glaze coating. I embellished my block with images, bling, metal, feathers, beads, moss, pearls, and lace.
