Pink Roses signify grace, elegance, sweetness and poetic romance
The Shabby Tea Room “The Delicate Cottage Rose”
Art Cards “Peeled Paint”
Gingersnap Creations “Go 3d”
Preparing this canvas I had Art Cards  “Peeled Paint” in mind but soon realised I could use the one canvas for three different challenges.

This is the photo inspiration for The Shabby Tea Room.
For my canvas I chose blush pink, old white patina and pistachio. I wanted to use green to signify greenery in a garden and to keep it fresh chose pistachio instead of a dark leafy green.
 For the Peeled Paint I started with Pistachio acrylic. Once dry I stamped all over with a rose stamp then added the Vaseline, then soft blush pink acrylic. Once the Peeled Paint technique was effective and after cleaning I added Old White Patina. The patina also used on the heart shaped frame.
Shows a close-up of the peeled paint.

Both photos will show all the bits and pieces, such as the dried rosebud in the frame.

    Lynne, this is so beautiful and feminine. I do love it. I also like the slightly different way you did your peeled paint technique. I think I’ll try using a stamp next time instead of my fingers in the vaseline.

      Faye, you will still need to dip into the tub of Vaseline. I added the stamping after the first colour of paint, then before adding the Vaseline I stamped the roses. Lynne x
