After chatting with Mr P last night, and him saying that I should have kept hold of a little card that I sent off in the snail mail challenge (it was based on my little princess), I decided to make something to replace it. I decided to make a mixed media canvas for her room. She loves all things girly and pink, and anything to do with princesses.
In a bit of a change from my usual portrait/canvas way of working, I decided that I would also make some collaged embellishments to go along with the theme and colour way.
I started with a little bird, after being influenced by the artwork of Tim Sally who does lots of birds. This is my version.
Little pencil sketch.
I collaged the little bird with mixed papers.
This is after I've added some of the silk papers (which I'm still loving) and I've started to work on top in pencil crayon to add detail.
I also made a couple of little hearts in the same colours, and added the detail and outline with pencils. (I cannot tell you enough how great coloured pencils are) Buy some.
This is my Little Miss P, I basically made a Paper Doll Chick following the steps that I have used before. Sketch, colour, blend and outline.
Then whilst all the elements were drying, I collaged the canvas in mixed papers and images, and added a top layer of white tissue paper to soften the look.
Finally, I put all the bits together... et voila. (oh and I added some glittery embossing powder too)
