I Love Art!

Hi there crafters!
Rachelle here sharing my latest
 I so enjoy creating these projects and this time I used a mixed media style.

Take a look!
 "I Love Art."

Since I love painting I used a basic paint pallet for this project.
First, I placed strips of tissue paper on the pallet and then painted white.
Next, I added a brick design using a stencil and homemade texture paste.
It does the same thing as mod podge and gesso just less expensive.

Homemade Smooth Texture Paste

Gabrielle Pollacco

One of my fave designers

1/4 cup Talcum Powder (I used Johnson's Baby Powder, Make it smell good too!!)
1 tablespoon White All purpose School Glue
1 tablespoon White Craft Paint
Some Water 
 Instructions:  Combine talcum powder, glue, white paint with disposable chopsticks (or plastic spoon) in an airtight container, adding water to get it to the consistency you are looking for.  You want a nice thick texture much like toothpaste.  The mixture will keep perfectly for many months.
It works!!!!!
