“Don't seek to be happy; let everyone else chase after that rainbow.
Seek to be kind, and you'll find the rainbow follows you.”
― Richelle E. Goodrich
Hey Everyone! Happy Friday and happy PPF. . . .
I have a project here that's been in the works since - believe it or not - this year's Summer of Color! I've finally gotten around to finishing her, and took copious amounts of pictures along the way to show the progression from a quick sketch to a colorfully drippy & waxy finished piece. Wanna take a peek? Okay then, here we go. . . .
The initial sketch
Addition of collage pieces including decorative napkins, tissue paper & washi tape
Washes of blues and grays and the beginnings of her face
The rainbow is colored using 2-3 hues for each segment in a variety of mediums
Texture is added with acrylic white paint mixed with fiber paste pushed through a stencil
Using a quilting iron and crayons, I carefully melted 2 colors for each segment and let 'em drip
The final result! Additional touches include iridescent stars, Stickles glitter in her hair and tights, hash marks made with pencil, wax crayon scribbles (Caran D'ache 1), stamping and charcoal.
Thanks for looking! Now I'm headed over to PPF to see what everyone else is up to this week!
But wait! Before you go, I'm really excited to offer you a chance to win a FREE SPOT on the next Life Book 2015!
To do so, make sure you come back HERE this Sunday, 9/21 and enter. It's that simple. I'd love you to join us and am thrilled to offer you a chance to play along for an entire year of mixed media goodness for nothing, nada, zilch . . . .
See you Sunday!
To Love & Art,
