Anita chose softer tones from the pink and yellow choices to design this stunning piece. To create it Anita started with an oval wood panel covered in heavy gesso.
Next she used the tubaroses stencil with modeling paste, sprinkling glitter over the top while still wet. She heat set it till it was dry, then she added watercolour using the Tropicals Confections set, finally finishing with Prima flowers!

"The color combination this month is absolutely gorgeous. I used this fabulous palette of yellows and pinks to create a spring floral canvas. These colors combine perfectly with the Havana collection. I used Havana papers and embellishments, flowers, Julie Nutting stamp, resins, mixed-media goodies, watercolors, and Color Bloom sprays ~ Vero Atienza
