As I continue to work on my Goddess series, I thought I would do a post about each of the larger pieces so that when they find a home people can come to check out a little of how each girl was created. I also help to inspire you a little as well :)
My Delicate Flower mixed media girl likes to hide behind the beauty of her garden. For the background, I started with this beautiful tissue like paper I found at Deserres. (If you have never been, you should really check them out. They have the most beautiful selection of papers and tons of art supplies. Lots of projects for the little ones as well.) I cut the paper up in sections as it is always easier to apply then one huge sheet.
The flowers were then cut from scraps of paper I had in my stash from a Sizzix Flower Layers Die. I inked the edges of the petals to further define them, then topped them with a little white pearl.
Although shy, this girl definitely has some personality with this showy dress and headpiece. Can’t forget to outline everything with a fluid black pen.
What is a garden without a butterfly? It is atop the outline left behind from using one of my go-to vintage plastic doilies that I love using as stencils.
Some background stamps in black ink here and there and the piece is complete.
Love her and how quickly she came together. Maybe I should have had a little more contrast with the background? What do you think?
