Just sharing another one of my creative outpours!
This pretty girl has been sitting around for months now just waiting to be turned into something cool so I finally did it!
This was a bit challenging but fun for sure.
Basic Mixed Media/Collage...
The girl came from a magazine and the flowerly elements from an adult coloring book. I will probably start making my own doodles soon but I'm happy using what I have for now.
Magazine cut out.
Flowers from an adult coloring book.
White Out Pen.
Black Ink Pen.
Scissors & Glue.
And off we go...
Starts with composition... and I decided to go all blue so I painted the flowers with watercolors.
Next I added Gesso to the background and I changed her top...
Wasn't a big fan of the leopard print and it wasn't meshing well so I used some washi tape and made her a new top lol
I really had no idea how I was going to make this work as I was going along but I got the entire background gesso'd real good and I added some splashes here and there to get some color started... For the title I used blue card stock and the same color washi tape as I used for her top.
And here is the finished product... I ending up adding a lot more paint as you can see which worked out because it also helps create some movement and I think it's pretty good... not bad actually. I did add some acrylic paint in the "clouds" too, I wanted to change them up a bit... for the title I used a White Out pen and I went over the ballon strings with a black inky pen.
At first I wasn't sure about this one, but now I kinda want to frame it and hang it up...
And make more lol it's actually a rather big piece for me...
My art journal is 8x5 and this piece is 9x12...
Here are some close ups!
I wanted to highlight a few areas so you could see them better but I did add some glitter to the pretty girl... in her hair and on her dress a bit...
Hopefully you can see it in the picture on the left.
I do love this one... I love the movement and the interaction with the flowers...
Thank you so much for stopping by!
More to come!
I hope you have a brilliant day!
