Monstera Panel with Olga Ravenskaya

Hi gorgeous Lindy’s friends!

It’s Olga Ravenskaya here with my new project a Monstera panel for Lindy’s blog.

I wanted to create something summery and bright to catch memories of that wonderful summertime and my charming and fun scrap friend.

As a first step, I’ve made a color palette mixing my new greens, Ponderosa Pines Olive and Green with Envy Green Starbursts, which I recently got, so very beautiful Bodacious Blush and two pinks – soft Cotton Candy and light, creamy Chateau Rose.

Then I grabbed other embellishments matching to my idea and began creating.

I’m showing you today a quick way of creating a bright and attractive background using sprays and squirts.

First I covered MDF monstera base with white gesso and applied a white modeling paste through the stencil.

The easiest way to create a striped background is to use masking tape. Just fix it stripe by stripe on your piece as on the photo below.

Then I’ve grabbed my sprays and applied them using brushes stripe by stripe according to my color combo, from creamy pink to khaki green.

Remove the masking tape and you’ll get beautifully painted surface!

Look at this effect – the stencil’s pattern has been painted much deeper because of its porous surface than the flat parts and it makes a gorgeous contrast.

I’ve stamped a bit using color Stazon inks.

And at the end, I’ve added some splats of Canadian Bacon Blush and Beaver Tail Brown Squirts using fan brushes.

Next I’ll show you how I painted moulded leaves to get a natural look with them.  I used Canadian Bacon Blush to fulfil veins of the leaves.

Let them dry and apply the upper layer with Emerald Eh?! and Beaver Tail Brown Squirts.

Dry again and add splatters.

Look how natural looking they turned out!

Several photos of the finished work as a little inspiration.
