White on White Raised Plaster Panel

Today I wanted to show you the second raised plaster panel I did with the same stencil I used last week.  I really disliked the panel I painted in Duck Egg Blue last week while I was working on it, but then when I applied the wax, it was really transformed.  I still thought I would like the white on white better, but in reality neither myself or my husband are as happy with it as the first panel.  My husband thinks I should have gone over the raised plaster with a lighter white, and he may be right.  Lucky for me I have one more of these cabinet doors, so guess what I'll be doing next week.

Thanks for visiting.  I have new projects planned and I also have an art class next week with Rita Reade of  She is teaching a sign painting class and a soldering class.  Yes, I'm playing hooky for one day to take a class with one of my friends from Christie Repasy's class.  So hopefully I will have something to share on that end too.  Have a great weekend.
