She Art Girl

Hi
I wasn't going to blog this as she is nothing like the gorgeous girl I envisaged!! I first saw Christy tomlinson's She art girls on my friend Hilda's blog and wanted to try and create one. Having no face, I thought it would be easy. Hilda gave me some tuition and I duly made a mixed media background using paper scraps, acrylic paints,sprays, stencils, including sequin waste and bubble wrap. The background is way too dark for my liking so I dabbed on white acrylic paint with bubble wrap to brighten it. She has had 3 changes of clothes and the black splodges on her feet are supposed to be elegant boots! I can't count the mistakes I made, worse was putting her final dress on with mod podge and finding it rather lumpy, stupido had used glass bead gel instead so had to scrape it all off and cut yet another dress! The photo doesn't do it justice, it's much worse in real life!! Can't wait to make another. Thanks for stopping by xx

You're too modest, Joy. She is brilliant! Sounds like you had a lot of fun along the way too, which is the most important thing. xx
