    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Using a 1" flat brush, apply Cadmium Red Hue to the frame. While the paint is still wet, apply Quinacridone Violet randomly.
    2. Use sandpaper to distress the surface, concentrating on the edges of frame and photo cut-out.
    3. Position the stencil as desired (shown: Americana Daisy Chain Stencil). Randomly stencil on Green Gold and Cobalt Teal Hue using two cosmetic sponges.
    4. Use the transfer paper and a pencil to transfer the cat pattern onto the scrapbook paper. Cut out the cat.
    5. Paint the cat's head, legs, and tail Primary Yellow with a #4 round brush. Mix Cadmium Red Hue and Primary Yellow 1:2 and use to paint the body of the cat.
    6. Use Quinacridone Violet to paint stripes on the tail and a black permanent marker to outline the cat's face and whiskers. Paint the nose in Cadmium Red Hue.
    7. Apply a coat of Matte Medium on a desired area to place the cat. Place the cat down on the surface and apply another coat of Matte Medium on top.
    8. Use an oil pastel in a color of choice to outline the cat. Use a finger or cosmetic sponge to fade the outline.
