Tis that time of year again, where I start disappearing into the garden, and because so many blogs are now linked to Facebook I am forgetting to post on my own blog *smacks own head on desk*
So I thought I better share some art before you think I have abandoned you all completely :D
Inspired by Jeanette over at One Little House ning group...
I have collaged on watercolour paper with scrap paper (drop sheets) and a paper bag...
followed by a layer of stencilling with my new Martha Stewart stash :D
I used a thin film of white gesso to pick out the facial area, and water soluble pencils to draw in a few butterflies...
and then decided to "knock back" the background a little with a thinner layer of gesso :D
Then it was just a case of blocking out shapes and adding definition.
I wanted to keep this image quite soft and translucent, while still keeping the colours quite bold. Finishing off with a few white stars on the background using another stencil.
Inspired by Jeanette's "Make a wish"...I call this "Butterfly Kisses"
Enjoy :D XXX
