When I saw The Crafter’s Workshop TCW 499 Koi Pond stencils, I knew they would be perfect for making some Chinese New Year decorations like this 8×8 mixed media canvas.
The background was first covered with wrapping tissue, then coloured with Derwent Inktense blocks. After that, I applied Golden Fiber Paste medium with the TCW 499 Koi Pond for textured dimension. Next I painted with Daler Rowney and Silks Acrylics. I finished the project with some Golden Glass Bead Gel and Gold Mica Flakes.
