Gesso the canvas, board or paper and let dry completely
Paint stripes vertically in different colors, they don't need to be perfect! Let all this dry completely, otherwise you will have a hot mess.
Are you having fun? If not switch into that mode!!!
While that is all drying.... and none of us are thrilled watching paint dry, we will go on to extreme fun!
Take out your Gelli plate, homemade or bought. Cut out or punch out circles you can see what I did in the photo below for inspiration. Lay a layer of paint down on the Gelli plate with a brayer, if you want to go with more colors that is great to. Place the circles on top of the paint, put a clean piece of paper on top of it all, run your hands over the paper to get the print. Take it of and check out your masterpiece! Repeat this process with the same circles but place the circles painted side down. What were aiming for are circles with multiple colors in them. When they are just right set them aside to dry.
Grab the chevron stencil and black acrylic paint, place the stencil near the top, unless you'd like the chevron design to be placed somewhere else. Take a small amount of black paint on the sponge and pounce it on a piece of clean paper to get some of the paint off. You need very little paint, if there is too much paint, the paint will seep under the stencil. Not pretty!!! Now go for it and softly pounce the sponge where ever you want the stenciled chevron design to be. Let dry!
When everything is dry glue the circles all over the canvas with the gel medium or glue. Let dry....sounds like a broken record eh :)
Next 3 coats of glazing medium, let each layer dry before applying the next. Walla done just put a hanger on it and hang in a place of presence!!!
