"The Domino Effect" designed by Judy Westegaard
I enjoyed paintingThe Domino Effect following Judy's instructions and loved the finished piece. The leaf pattern on the frame is accomplished by outlining with DecoArt's Acrylic Dimensional Writer (Black). I decided however a green frame would look better in our home. Since DecoArt does not make a writer in the right shade of green, I decided to make my own by mixing JoSonja's Texture paste half and half with Americana Avocado paint. Then I filled a 1-ounce bottle from Loew-Cornell and used the metal writer tip.
JoSonja Texture paste can also be troweled onto a flat surface to make a sheet of clay-like material that can be cut into shape. The rose and leaf pattern was added to this small purse as a faux button.
