Love Plaque with stenciled cabbage roses

I hope you're here from the sneak peek at Party Time Tuesdays.
 
I started with an 11x14 board.  I layered some designer paper with liquitex matte medium.
You go around all the edges of the paper with white paint (use your finger)  It helps the pieces to blend together.  Then I stenciled with modeling paste one of Retta's stencils. Cabbage roses.  The camera picked up the images beautifully.
Then I started coloring with Gelatos.   I hand cut some hearts and added them with the matte medium.
After it was all applied, I painted around the edges and smeared with my finger to outline everything and make it pop.

 I print my sentiments and/or poems out from Word Pad, spray with sealer and then add to my project.
I love the texture that stenciling with modeling paste gives.  Add lots of depth and character to your pieces.
Thanks for stopping by! 

Check out Party Time Tuesdays for loads of inspiration and challenges.
