Well! Here is something completely different. This is the one I was talking about the other day. I drew the girl on sketch paper, colored her in with colored pencil, pen, paint and glitter,and then added her to the painting/collage at the end. I love her hair!
It came out totally different than what I was going for, but I'm still happy with the results.
I tried doing tons of texture in the background, and the houses were scrapped out of gesso in the first layer.
I liked the result, but as I was wrapping up dinner in tin foil, I noticed how lovely and silver it was, and wouldn't that look good in my collage! So I made the houses out of it. Fun!
The only thing I'm really bummed about on this piece is the lips, which I assure you, looked good until I put that string gel over it, and the ink from the pen ran. Ooops!
I'm finishing another one today, which came out pretty cool too. My new favorite tool, is stamped tissue paper, love it!!
