She heard there was a party at Carolyn Dube's blog on February 1! So she got out her gelli plate, made some designs using book pages from an old book she was preparing to alter...
and made a collage. She drew herself a beautiful party dress and added more pieces of her collage paper to make sure her dress could really twirl (just in case there's dancing!).
She used fluid acrylics and glazing medium to paint away a lot of the background, to make sure that SHE, and not the beautiful collage papers, would really stand out. Portfolio watersoluble pastels and gelatos added to the shading and the sparkly stars and rectangles, stamped with gold ink. A tiara finished off the outfit.
The party doesn't start 'til tomorrow, but she's stylin' her dress today just cause. See you at the party!
Thank you for visiting! I read and treasure every comment, even if I don't always get to respond directly, and will answer any questions as quickly as I can.
