Last week of the Fabulous Faces Course. Its been a blast. Ive still tons to learn but I've really enjoyed the journey on this course. This final piece was done on hot pressed watercolour paper. Its the first time Ive use this surface, I did enjoy the smooth quality of it for the portrait tones. I used torn book pages in the background, lots of stamps and brayering to add to the texture. In the dark strands of her hair, I added more texture with tissue paper. We had to integrate our portraits with other elements and some lettering/quote. We also had to try something different with her hair, hence the tissue paper. I used die cuts for the word magical. I used stadelier felt pens to draw in the flowers and leaves and other lettering.
