New Art From Old
Fellow mixed media artist, Diane has visited my blog and left lovely comments. A post of hers gave me the idea to try something new. Like her, I printed an older piece on card stock after I altered the size to fit the board (6"x6") I wanted to use. Printing it out this way allowed me to add some pencil work to the picture. I added a little more highlighting on the forehead, nose and chin. And I wanted the eye a lighter brown. The other papers used in this piece are painted tissue paper and commercially printed patterned scrapbook card stock that I spray painted to make it my own.
