      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!
