Finished WIP, and some thanks
hi friends! If you read my last post you saw the painting I'd been doing for my sister's birthday present. Here is the almost finished version. There are still a couple more things I want to fix up, like the headband..I will be adding tiny flowers and crystal to it. It was so late Saturday night, I couldn't stay up any longer, lol! My sis now says this is her favorite artwork so far, which always makes an artist feel like the hard work is worth it.
I added more layers using stamped tissue paper and vintage paper, then gesso'd it loosely. More layers of creme paint were added, a bit more rubber stamping, then the fun stuff like gold stars, and gold leaf, and some gold mica powder.
(for those of you looking for a nice creme paint, Golden's 'titan buff' is wonderful! If you don't have this color, I highly recommend it, it is gorgeous and very versatile).
I must admit here, I am a bad blogger! I have received blog awards, and always make a mental note to thank them on my blog...well, you can see where this is going, lol! I swear I am so scatterbrained. If you have given me a blog award and I haven't thanked you yet, I apologize. You don't know how many times I plan to do it in the evening when I get home, only to forget.
So I will take the time here to thank some people:
First of all, a big thank you to Julia for making me her featured artist on her blog this week. Please check out her blog, she has lots of great stuff there!
Thank you to Linda for honoring me with the 'best blog award'! You must see her journal pages!
and Thank you to Carole, photographer extraordinaire, for the Deborah Award.
Now I must get working on a couple of new ACEOs I want to create for EBAY Groups Nibblefest Art Contest...this month's theme is Halloween, and it's been a while since I added anything on EBAY.
