Sneak Peak Friday...Eternal Words Tutorial

I am so glad that we have Friday "deadlines" to help motivate me sometimes!  Creating the video tutorial was quite the challenge!  But it is complete (yay), I sound like my sister, my hand is in the way some of the time (I will work on adjusting the camera angle even more for next time), and you have almost 76 minutes of video to watch!

Supply list:

10 inch by 10 inch gallery wrapped, pre-primed canvas
Paints: titanium white; light blue; carmine; and black
Brushes:  #4 fan; #6 filbert; #6 round; #3/0 round; 5/8" flat
Black water color pencil
Misc...(you can use these or something of your choosing): sponge; cotton swabs; paper towels
Pre-printed words in the font of your choice

Optional - workable fixative
Finish - varnish of your choice

Videos (Links to You-Tube)
Parts 1 and 2 - 1st steps on the background
Parts 3 and 4 - adding red to the background and 
                        painting large words
Part 5 -  adding the first layer of "cross-hatch"
Part 6 - adding the white layer of "cross-hatch"
Part 7 -  adding back in more red with "cross-
                  hatch" and more work on word letters
Part 8 -  Finishing the letters, adding more text 
                   and more red
Part 9 - tweaking, tweaking, tweaking
Part 10 - paint splatters
Part 11 - tweaking and text words finish
