Collage with Paper Napkins for Colleen
Matte Gel Medium, I glued all the pieces down around the face... the end result looks like I drew the face and simply added the collage around it :)
Dylusions acrylic paint (Calypso Blue). Then I filled in the rest of the background leaving the dragonflies, flowers and her hair free of colour (so it showed the serviettes).
Dylusions acrylic paint (Lemon Zest, a clean bright yellow) mixed into the remainder of the Calypso Blue I had on my plate. The variation of the green was created simply by adding more yellow to create a lighter green, with some areas using only yellow. Being a semi-translucent paint, it layers beautifully :) The blue flower is left free of green paint showing the layer underneath.
Tim Holtz Stickers, I found some quotes that suited my page perfectly. The super tiny tattoo style stickers I've had for ages work well too... so cute! I haven't added anything else to the original print of the girl except for altering her eyes ever so slightly.
Not only does my mind wander… sometimes it walks off completely.
Thanks for reading and looking :) I hope it made you smile!
Have a wonderful arty day!
