I used the backside of a canvas and added a layer of stucco on the frame to smooth out the edge of the canvas and the staples.
The background is painted using watercolor paper and paint thinned with water to create a watercolor effect (wet in wet). The same colors were used on the frame.
The stars a re spattered using white paint and a fan brush.

The skyline is a diecut, black cardstock covered with some metallic lustre.

The Globe is also a diecut , I added some distress ink and metallic lustre.

The words are stamped and on wone side of the canvas I added some wire to attache the words to.

I finished the piece bij adding some black paint to the edges of the frame

USA flag AJ page

I was playing around with a Deco Art Stencil and this came out


Deco Art Products used:
Deco Art Americana acrylics in : True Red , Snow White, True Blue and Navy Blue
Deco Art Americana Gesso, Stencil American Tribute



I made this in my small Moleskine journal, it has very thin paper so first I glued 2 pages together and next added a layer of gesso.

The Flag of the stencil was exact the right size to fit on the spread and I started stenciling the red using a stencil brush.
Next I adde the blue and made the background around the flag blue too.
The stars are in the stencil and I used white for them, next I painted the white stripes.

The shades were made using a Faber Castel pitt brush pen in black.
