Our Process

  1. Cover the canvas with black gesso. IMG_2536
  2.  Use the first stencil and spray gold colour through it. All products used are listed at the end.


  3. Choose another stencil, and using a sponge dabber go in with gold acrylic paint. IMG_2545
  4. Pick out another stencil, and add some gold texture paste through it. This adds depth and dimension to the background.


  5. Stamp the focal image and colour it. Pick out elemets for layering, chipboards, diecuts, flowers,etc. We used lindy’s magicals, shakers and sprays to colour everything.


  6. Adhere, all the elements as per the composition you like. Finish it with glitter and a quote/sentiment. IMG_2781

We wrote a little poem inspired by this:

The Dandelion Fields

Golden and warm-

So were the

Dandelion fields.

Striking and blazing,

That every passerby

Stopped to see them.

Elegant and ethereal,

Was the Dandelion girl

The one who lived in them.

Glistening and glittering,

When the sun shone,

She rose amidst them all.

Swift and rhythmic-

With every move of hers,

Our hearts danced and raced.

Singing and humming

To the little robin,

The one who nested on her shoulder.

She spoke of stories

That we’d never heard before.

Blossoming and spiralling,

She wore them dandelions

On her body and her crown.

Daffodils and dahlias

Enveloping her hair and wings,

Swayed, as the wind brushed her skin.

And with that, her seeds blew

Leaving her bare.

But with the blink of an eye

She was whole again.

And so all we knew was

Wish upon the dandelion girl

For she has the power

To blossom again.

    Your choice of stencils and layering made for a perfect background. The various shades of gold are an excellent example of how a single color can create depth and contrast. Tfs

    Gold is tricky – too much of a good thing and it’s hard to look at. However, you have done a masterful job. This piece is so gorgeous and interesting. Everywhere I looked, I saw more and more of the interesting details. Very well done! And thank you for the detailed instructions.
