I decided to make a Christy Tomlinson style girl and I want to show you my inspiration
This is Christy Tomlinson artwork and she has it in her etsy store right now. I recommend to anyone wanting to learn to paint, go take her workshops and the are on SALE HERE. She is a very good teacher as well as painter. I admire what she does.
Here is my canvas
This canvas edge was done waaay to early this morning and I double visioned the stamp along the edge. I think I was seeing double? Not enough coffee to be awake that early? So then I Frantaged the edges with Shabby Green and I love how it looks.
My background was mod podged with Glitz papers "Cashmere Dame" and then I painted over it with acrylic blue, yellow, and pink.
Her flowers are cut out with Tim Holtz Tattered Florals and then I blended them in with gelatos and Pitt pens from Fabercastell. I doodled around her and her hair. I stamped various stamps onto her and around the canvas.
One thing I like about this kind of canvas is the texture you get from mod podging your strips of random papers. There is a real piece of lace that gave me some trouble, it finally stayed after I used Glossy Accents and then mod podge.
Another boo boo because I was half asleep is that when you heat up Frantage the acrylic paint bubbles right away, so she has a blemish on her arm, hehe.
I used Rub ons for the doily and edges and corners.
Her hair, skin and cheeks were painted. The dress, flowers, and butterfly are mod podged on.
I am entering this canvas into the following challenges
Thank you for stopping by today, hope your weekend is fun and crafty!
