it's taken me a few days to get myself geared up to blogging and art again, I really must apologise. The holiday, or at least the jet lag, really 'zapped' me for a moment. Anyway, I've hopefully shook it off now and can get back to some making and blogging about it.
This little lovely is part of a set (that I did on vacation) - at least I did something :)
Here's the whole picture (minus the text)
I used a stamp for the body/kimono, but the faces are all mine.
Enough of that, today I did something new.
A little mixed media journal page, I actually really like it too.
I used indian inks to create a really BRIGHT background... look, it's still wet.
Meanwhile, whilst the ink dried, I made a little collaged/painted Paper Doll Chick.
I watercoloured the face, collaged the hair and used an ink pen to outline my drawing. She's still wet too, thank goodness for a heat gun.
Close Up cutie
I stamped some butterflies onto a magazine page. I'm loving butterflies.
I added the butterflies and used some rub-on words.
This is when I added the tissue layer.
I was so relieved to see that the text was still visible.
Here she is, I worked on the tissue with the crayons again.
Play, Grow, Delight.
Hope you like her.
Oh it's so good to be back doing the art again, Oh how I missed you.
