Here is the beautiful color story:
This week we have an amazing sponsor--Simon Says Stamp!
I drew this girl myself, modeled after this photograph I found on the internet, ( here is the original photo).
I started with a 6x6 canvas board, then used paint, gesso, book paper, masking tape, and sheet music to create the background. I also used SEI Tumble Dye. I used a Crafter's Workshop stencil (Harlequin), punchinella, and vintage plastic doilies. I also used a roller stamp from Stampin' Up.
Then, I drew and cut out her body from book paper and mod podged it on. I painted and outlined her, and added her dress and sash, and outlined that. Finally, I drew in her hair!
I was maybe going to add a happy word on the side, but I decided that she speaks for herself (even without a mouth, hah!) After she was all done, I realized that my girl's proportions aren't quite correct (don't look too closely at the leg on the left!) but I think overall she looks cute!
