First tip: when using materials for your project, swipe the remaining product on a page on your art journal. For instance, I stenciled an area on my main project and then turned the stencil around and swiped it on a journal page. See photos:
Tip Two: Use a cylinder item and spray glimmer mist, etc in the center for a solid circle. See photo:
If you look above the cylinder to the right, you can see the solid green circle.
Ok...now to the details:
As anyone who has played with mixed media knows, it's about layers. So, I started with adding random pieces of scrapbook paper I have in my scrap pile. My pink scraps were getting pretty full so I decided to use pink. There really is no other reason.
I selected four colors from my stash of acrylic paints. For no reason, I selected Lavender, Marine, King's Gold and Too Blue. Then started using these four colors to add excitement to the base.
The photo below shows the journal page I am making using the same products so not to waste materials and the object on the right is the main project.
I bought a Prima doll stamp (I finally found one with curly hair!) over the holidays and dressed her up for this She Art. Here's the final project. I set out thinking I would make something for my daughter's friend who is leaving to go back to school but I always fall in love with my projects and of course want to keep it. LOL
I love projects like this. I do not spend any money and use items I already have.
You probably noticed I mentioned an Art Journal. I'm been thinking about starting one for awhile, and so now I finally did. The page is not complete since it needs some sort of focal point. I may create the doll again or not. I haven't decided yet.
So...there it is. My first project for 2015! How do you like it?
