What is more beautiful than gorgeous flowers placed perfectly on a layout? Tina used different sizes of flowers when creating her flower clusters. She dry brushed them with a little white gesso and added some art stones along with some seashells to give it a beach feel. You can create a very distinctive layout using various artistic elements just by using the same items and taking them throughout your layout. Tina certainly created a masterpiece using this technique. I hope you have been inspired to add a little extra to your projects.

At first it will look white, but as the paste dries the colors come through in a beautiful, softened tone.
