Week 2 of Christy's She Art Workshop had us making a scene with our girl. We could either paint or paper the sky & grass. On my canvas, I used strips of green papers for the grass then mixed blue paint in with modeling paste to make the sky. Using a palette knife, I spread it like frosting so there's some really interesting texture but it's kind of hard to see in the photo.
After that, it was making the girl---can you see the raffia as her belt? Add a chipboard branch & some birds for the "scene" and some rubons and it's on its way! I love messing around with the different "textures" from punchinella, bubble wrap, and stamps. It's so cool how individually they don't make a huge impact, but all together they are so much fun!
I have another canvas started with paint as the sky & grass but that's as far as I've gotten..... Even though I set my alarm at 3:30 every day to do some art, it doesn't always happen. :( Hopefully tomorrow!!
