Tropical Dahlia

I decided to have some fun with Cirque's Dear Dahlia. While I was playing with this collection I kept imagining it on my tropical honeymoon. I'm excited to get married,  but I'm also excited for an extended vacation lazing around on a beach with blue waters and drinks with little umbrellas. So I decided to paint some green palm type leaves and orange & blue flowers using Dear Dahlia as a base. 




I then added a matte topcoat, so you can see the details a little better. I can't decide if I like shiny or matte better. What do you think?



All of the leaves/flowers were done in acrylic paint, so I don't have color names for you. Sorry.

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

  1. Impressive! I like the matte version better, it looks more like an actual painting that way.

    1. I agree. Matte is where it is at with this look.
