DAISIES IN JUNE – A MIXED MEDIA PIECE

Hello folks, Nancy here, and welcome to a tutorial for a mixed media piece using black gesso, heavy body acrylics and a great new stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop.

Looking through my wonderful collection of stencils from The Crafter’s Workshop, I came upon Stained Glass Daisies and knew I wanted to create the look of stained glass using their brightly colored acrylics and black gesso.
