Tints and Shades

Sorry for the bad quality of photo.  There wasn’t enough light and I upped the ISO pretty high thus the graininess.

This assignment asked for stamped butterflies or similar but I don’t have a lot of stamps so I decided to create the butterflies in Photoshop and overlay with digital scrapbooking papers (which I have a ton of), then I sent it to the Silhouette to trace and cut.  I used 3-D foam squares to stick the butterflies onto the paper.  The project asked for Glazing Fluid Medium but I don’t have that so I used Clear Gesso which turned out very similar.  My Reeves Acrylic paints are on the darker side so I had to mix in white to create the pastels.  I had to let this paint dry for at least a full day before I could add the embellishments.
