Terri Sproul Mixers ~ Sakura Crystal Lacquer ~ Easter Chicks!

Having fun with Terri Sproul Mixers, Sakura Crystal Lacquer and gears for Spring!!! Let your imagination run wild... have all the fun you want creating with Terri Sproul Mixers and Sakura Crystal Lacquer!!!  There is no end to what you can create!
Paint canvas with gesso, dry.  Add a thin layer of glue, lay napkin gently on glue. Paint glue over napkin and add a strip of music.  Lightly gesso over the canvas again. 
Lay bubble wrap over the canvas to remove a little more of the gesso and give it a little texture. Paint Citrine Pearl + Tanzanite Pearl for the grass and stems with leaves.  Set aside to dry.
Gesso over chipboard, dry, add Sakura Crystal Lacquer with Terri Sproul Mixers. Sakura Crystal Lacquer and Citirne Pearl on the large and small gears for the body and head of the chicks. Sakura Crystal Lacquer and Citrine Pearl + Shimmer Garnet mixed for orange on the keys for the legs/feet and a little for the beaks on smaller gear.
Strips of paper are rolled for the flowers and painted with Sakura Crystal Lacquer and Purple Pearl.
