DecoArt Leafy Layers

I love this DecoArt Stencil Modern Leaf, click here for details
It has that lovely modern Retro feel, a bit Orla Keily and I love repeatative patterns too!
Heres how I used it on my canvas

Applied DecoArt Media Crackle Paste and allowed to dry for a couple of hours
Applied a blob of alternate DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Cobalt Teal Hue and Green Gold and 

brushed down the canvas in stripes

  Offset the stencil and apply Dioxadine Purple

, Wiping downwards with a baby wipe to soften and dilute

Apply Cobalt Teal Hue around the edges and blending

                          Apply Carbon Black through a stencil and wipe down to soften and blend

  Apply light brush strokes of Dazzling Metallic Worn Penny to areas of the leaf shapes


  1. Very striking. You have used the stencil beautifully Jools, gorgeous. Tracy x
