"It is better to fail at originality than to succeed in imagination." ~Herman Melville
Created on 8.5" x 11" cardstock...
Background was created with Neo II watersoluable crayons
Border is made up of handmade papers, decorative papers, tid bits from a magazine scanned in and printed out and cut/trimmed and added color using 4 different colored pencils.
The body is cut from a magazine as so the face image and added different set of eyes from
Words were cut from a variety of places mostly magazines and copies of vintage labels that were printed out and cut/trimmed and added color here and there using colored pencils and Faber Castell pitt brush pens.
Added detail in shading done with colored pencils and doodle dots done with poster paint pens.
This was a really fun piece to do. It was actually done in two sessions...background and image placement was done last night and the glueing, shading and doodling were done today.
Hmmm...what should I cook tonight....maybe that chicken I have marinating in the fridge, some scalloped potato's and steamed fresh asparagus...ya...that sounds good.
Till next time!
Love and hugs,
