I created a garden scene with a long board.  First I used Faber-Castell Gesso to paint the board.  Then with Pastel Gelatos I rubbed a little here and there (literally)  Using Faber-Castell Glaze I painted over the top which acted like water and blended it to a nice watercolor finish.  The board I scribbled Brown Gelato and rubbed wet my fingers with water and rubbed.  
For the flowers, I shaved a little of the same colors from the background to create a water color paint. Then painted the flowers.  Added ribbon and cheese cloth.
The final steps were to color LDRS Creative - DoveArt Studios Tea Time, fussy cut and attach.
A few Creative Basic, Stitched Flags and layered the background with Gilded Doily

So lovely! Really appreciate the detailed how-to on the board. I have some wood piece I want to work with and this is the exact look I want to achieve.
