I had so much fun working on this piece!
I have wanted to try some of the things I learned & was inspired by during Christy Tomlinson's She Art class. I love how Christy works. She is fast & doodles a ton (not to mention - a super teacher). Like I said before, sometimes I think a bit too much which slows me down. I am working on speeding up a bit & enjoying more freedom in my art play. I used an old board from the back of a frame & started throwing down some background.
I knew I wanted to make a little girl. I tend to do a lot of children's art. I try lots of different things, but I always make my way back to sweet little girls. :) So I made a large round head with some old book paper. (So funny - the background paper is a Finding Nemo book that my son ripped apart. Normally, I would be a little upset. But I was like,
"Ewwww, Thank you little guy!" )
|Hmm, the bird just doesn't look right down there!|
Then I just started playing. I saw a little ponytail on the side of her head and went with it. I loved adding the little doodles here and there. Plus the rub ons! Yum! Yum! I love using them. Christy uses them a lot, and she has great rub ons in her Scarlet Lime shop. You should check it out. But I warn you...you will want to shop! :)
|Adding more and more!|
I see several artists who create girls without faces. I love it! I have done many pieces like that as well and I always like the way they turn out. There is something very sweet about her featureless face. My hubby thought her cheeks were the beginning of Tim Burton big eyes...
now that I look at it - I can see that.
But, they are cheeks!! :)
Here she is all finished. I added one of my favorite verses, stuck on some cutie epoxy stickers for flower tops, stamped away, and added more doodles. I love the way she turned out. I had such a fabulous time making her...I can't wait to make some more. This sweet thing is going to look adorable framed & hanging in my daughter's room. She will hang next to the cutest piece ever that I bought my SugarBean for Christmas by Danielle Fraser (LOVE her!).
I hope you had a day full of rejoicing!
Big Art-filled Hugs,
This is the day the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
