      I love Ed Roth’s stuff, too! The water colour effect is one I’m definitely going to be trying again soon!

      I’m new to this diluted acrylic medium, but I’m really loving it. It’s such a pretty effect!

      Thank you, Heather! I love the colour too, even if it isn’t exactly “natural” for a swallow!

      Isn’t so fantastic! I found that the acrylic really held its colour, too (unlike a lot of watercolours). I’ll be doing some experimenting for sure!

    Okay – what a cool product! I never would guess that this was a stencil, it looks like a painting that takes artistic talent. Not that you aren’t talented – what I mean to say is, “holy crap, I bet even *I* could pull this off!”

    I love it. Thanks for sharing, I want to pick some of these up now!

      As soon as I saw the stencil I thought, “This would look so cool with a water-colour fill”. It really is as easy as it looks. It’s just all about patience and not going hog-wild with the paint brush (which I so often do!).

    That looks awesome. I never thought of watering down Acrylic before, thanks for the tip!

      I know! I’m so accustomed to using acrylics in their “full force” too, but now that I’ve discovered how wonderfully well they water down, I don’t know if I will ever look at them in the same way!

      Oh Jodi, I’m sure you could do this! The stencil helped a LOT. And I love making things for the walls – it’s become a bit of an addiction, honestly!
