I didn’t set out to create a beautiful embossed finish, but that’s how it turned out. Sometime I get carried away with a stencil and it ends up being a “happy” mistake. I started out painting this stencil design called summer blossom. To add some texture I then troweled plaster over the painted design.

Ok, That was pretty gorgeous but I couldn’t stop myself and after it dried I  brushed a  dark stain over that.

I love the result…. but be sure to check the next post because I still think it’s asking for  another layer!
