Journey 52 - Found Poetry

Springtime is such a wonderful time of year I tried to capture the lovely bright bursting yellow of daffodils, Crocus and fresh spring greens

I used a watercolour card as a base and coated with Gesso applied in waves to create texture, then applied layers of muslin with DecoArt Matt sealer Once dry I used Americana Cadmium and Primary Yellow, lemonade, sour Apple, Avocado, plum and black working from the top down

The clouds were created with modelling paste applied with a palette knife, the found poem was printed using Word Art and then torn

The Stamps are all Stampotique using Stazon Black
