Deco Art Winter Challenge

Winter Media Challenge Graphics-21

Hello my friends!

Deco Art is having another opportunity to create and possibly win a prize pack valued at $120.00.

The Design team created some great projects to get things started….. here is mine.


I started this piece using an 8×8 mdf board and put down book pages with Media Matte Medium


Then using Colbalt Turquoise and titanium white fluid acrylic I painted a circle and then painted white around it. Sprayed water on it and picked up the water with a paper towel. That is what gives it that speckled effect. Then with raw umber antiquing cream I aged the background.


I then found a royalty free image of a deer and went to photo shop and created this design. I reversed it, for the image transfer. printed it out on regular printer paper using and ink jet.


I cut my design apart and the outer design I turned it over and used my image transfer medium (follow the directions) I let it dry for an hour.


Once dry using a spray bottle, I wet the paper and began rubbing the paper away


This step takes some time, so be patient.


I cut the dear out and used my matte medium to put it down.


Using blue green light fluid acrylic and Americana avocado and a fine brush and started painting the pine


Using Media fluid acrylics I painted the flowers


Titanium white and carbon black for high lights, dots, and vines.


Using the Deco Art pixelated stencil and black gesso to add just a little bit of texture.
