This Birch Wood Panel is simple and easy to create.
This is the birch wood panel I used.
It has a great surface. Here is a tip for you. If you like to see the grain of the wood in your painting then just start. If you don’t want to see the grain, I suggest you add a coat of soft gel medium or gesso to the surface first to seal it. I like both but it’s a personal decision.
I started by painting the board black and started adding color with acrylic paints. I challenged myself and used whatever was on my table from Dina Wakely, DecoArt, Golden to Liquitex.
Once I added all the color I added circles with the Circle Explosion stencil.
When the paint dried I added the bees from the Daily Buzz stencil and let it sit overnight to dry. I painted the bees with the dots from the Daily and added the quote with alpha stamps in archival ink.
Here is the final piece.
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with stencils to create these projects.
The opinions I share are solely my own because I do love to use them.
