I have a step by step tutorial of how I created this layout using the gorgeous word "Fabulous" and the mixed sized stars.
STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS
1. Get your Gesso and Brayer out
2. Using your Brayer apply some Gesso to your base page and allow to dry.
3. Choose which ULD Wood items you want to use and paint of your choice. I have found using a sponge paint brush works really well. Apply a thin coat over the Wood Items and allow to dry.
4. Next I applied some Faber Castle Gel Medium to the ULD Wood items, you can see from the picture the difference
between the one with the Gel Medium on and the one without. it just gives it a nice glossy look.
