Hi... a bit different today as this is my first of two posts. First one linking to TIOT where the challenge is to use some book pages/print on your project and I've been using my old school dictionary.... I knew it would come in handy after all these years :)
drew and cut out head, neck and hair from pages.
Using Galleria matt medium stuck down pieces plus a few random bits.
Probably should have painted background first but using Pebeo Dyna paints and Pebeo Yellow painted around the body and head and over random bits.
Some more painting then added more colour using a stencil/stamp die cut from craft foam.
Drew face, coloured lightly with Neocolor 11 oil pastels.
Added some more Pebeo Dyna paint to the strips at edges. And then finished by painting and sticking on hair, a bit of shadow with Stabilo all pencil and finally a digital quote.
August has been a funny month - the heat has made it awkward to sleep and what with trying to fit in watching the Olympics I seem to be doing everything late or back to front.
This was yesterdays breakfast - Polenta with sun dried tomato paste,quails egg, red pepper, and courgette. This morning was back to normal - beans on toast - but about 11am we were having a glass of white wine with cheese and crackers - this wasn't normal but this was to toast a blogging friend who was getting married this morning but too far for us to attend,
My red glasses case broke and Dave found a replacement but the dark blue didn't show up well and I spent so much time hunting down where I left my glasses that I did a quick painting with Pebeo acrylic and Dyna paints - not brilliant but at least it sticks out like a sore thumb and easier to find now.
Thanks for stopping by.
Hope you've had a great day.
No sunshine here today,
was a grey day and now raining.
