MIXED MEDIA: Girl canvas


Just wanted to pop by with a little canvas I made using lots of shimmerz and mixed media.
I created this for a little girls birthday, needless to say she loved it.

Products used: Dazzlerz: Tutti Frutti / Sea U in  the mornin' / foiled again
                       Aqua Huez: Little Lily/ Hottie Pink/ Rockin Robin/ Crazy Daisy / Honey Do List. 

 Firstly I started off with tearing some scraps of paper to create the dress on the girl.  
I then gesso to whole canvas.
I started then my colouring the skin and hair with some wax crayons.

Then I used lots of Aqua Huez for the dress to add colour and dazzerlez to add deminsion. I keep layering the colours till I was happy.

I then used the Dazzelerz with a stencil to create some flowers.

Lastly I add some embellishements and shimmerz flicks of Aqua Huez.

LAYOUT: shimmerz

Just popping by with a fun layout I created with lots of shimmerz and pretties.

Products used: Inklingz - blue lagoon/ can't elope/Honey do list
                       Aqua huez - chester nut / green with envy
                      Creameez - Ride the tide / Lettuce get together 

To create my background, I started with a gesso background. Then I spritz it with lots of water. I then started by adding drops of my shimmerz on to the page and moving the page about so that the colours would blend. 
I did the same process twice. Allowing the colours to dry in between. By doing it twice, it made the shimmerz darker and added more depth to the colours. 
I then added some modelling paste with a stencil.
Once that dried I add more colour with Aqua Huez as those colours are a little bolder.  
I also used a straw to blow the colour about.

I then started to build my layout.
