Instructions

  1. Paint the entire photo album cover Opaque Soft Gel White to provide a solid color surface. Allow to dry.
  2. Print the Daisies Pattern onto tracing paper.
    • TIP: Cut the tracing paper to fit an 8.5" x 11" sheet of printer paper then tape the tracing paper and printer paper edges together. This will help the tracing paper feed through the printer/ copier.
  3. Once printed onto tracing paper, remove the printer paper and trim the tracing paper to fit the album cover.
  4. Decoupage in place using traditional Mod Podge techniques. Let dry.
  5. Load the Medium Foam Applicator with Transparent Soft Gel Indian Yellow and sponge or dab color onto each daisy center.
  6. Paint two pairs of daisies alike – select an upper-corner daisy and the lower-opposite corner as a pair. These two daisies will be painted a combination of Transparent Soft Gel Indian Yellow and Quinacridone Red using the Medium Foam Applicator.
  7. Still using the Medium Foam Applicator, the remaining two opposite corner daisies are painted a combination of Transparent Soft Gel Prussian Blue and Dioxazine Purple.
  8. Finally, accent the photo album edges outside the decoupaged daisy pattern using the Medium Foam Applicator painting the blue/purple color combination.
