Playing with "She Art"

While the computer was fried... I took some time to create another She Art Girl... I had lots of fun with this one... All the other girls were created with a square canvas and this time I used a 6 x 12 inch canvas which allowed me to be a bit more free creatively... I did not want to do a "picture" background like the girl you see here...

In this first photo you can see I have already begun to cover the background of papers I had glued onto the canvas. I used paints and stencils along with bubble wrap and stamps to layer and create more dimension on the canvas.

This second photo shows the form of the girl I cut out from a book, as well as the dress.
I then started painting in the hair and adding shadows to her dress, giving her more life.

This is the final creation. You can see more stamps, paint (using punchanella) and rubons were used.

She is my favourite one so far...

  10. Love all the bright colors. These type of things are a lot that you find in those expensive craft/scrap mags. When I get the chance, I'd like to do a few, but with a more sports oriented twist.

  17. What a lovely piece of artwork! I love it - and yellow is my favourite of all colours (I love colour!). I think the effects you have created with paint are wonderful and I like the overall design very much.
    It was so nice to see how you put it all together too!
    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment. Cats are the best - I've had both talkative and silent (body language) cats, but never one who communicates as well as Sherlock. He's a very special cat (and I wonder if he thinks he may be human).
