Make sure your wooden board in clean and free from dust. Lightly wipe away with a damp cloth.
Cut strips of the wrapping in V-shapes, or if you want to do free-style, tear it!
Then, use glue to glue the strips of paper on the board.
You don't have to glue it closely to one another, you can leave gaps/spaces in between the strips, leave some room for the wooden surface to be seen.
Next, dry-brush (means do not mix your acrylic with water at all) your wooden board.
You can literally paint (up down motion) or dabble to cover the wooden surface.
Don't worry if the paint touches the paper. Try to blend the paint and paper together.
For a quick dry, use a hair-dryer if you must.
For the glitter gel, I used a Jo Sonja Opal Gel dust from the Jo Sonja paint range.
Usually used in folk art painting.
Its holographic particles enhances your paintings, especially if it is on a dark background like black.
But if you have your own choice of glitter gel, you may incorporate into it.
