Growing Mushrooms...

As promised, step by step pics of how I grew my mushrooms :D
I got some chalky spritzy things for Christmas and used them to create a background sheet, which I then glued onto greyboard and cut into 4 pieces.
Next I up-cycled a piece of laminated paper by drawing a mushroom...
and then cutting it out to create my own stencil :D
I taped the stencil over each piece of board...
and added paint with a sponge.
VoilĂ !
repeat in different colours Andy Warhol stylie :D
Then build up the detail using paint...
and define outline
Extra layer of yellow paint, splodged through mesh bag.
Inspired by the "magic mushroom" in the Alice in Wonderland story :D
Enjoy :D XXX
