I decided that I would try something new for my face #9 for 29 Faces in May. I would try a paint over collage technique. I have seen this technique several times and have really felt inspired to try it. Tam taught a lesson on this style in Life Book. So far on that lesson I chose a picture and glued it down. Yes! It's a start. :) I guess I could have finished that lesson for girlie #9. For some reason the smaller size of my journal was more appealing. So I gave it a shot in my little journal.
Here is the face with just some gesso. Sorry I don't have the image before I laid the gesso down. I totally forgot.
I just continue to build layers and color.
I added a little crown from the messy craft paper I line my work table with. I love saving that paper because it always gets so perfectly grungy.
