My project for AALL & Create this week is a little different for me! I had not really
intended to create a 'Jessica Rabbit' lookalike and I didn't really have a plan, but I have long been inspired by the faces that Jane Davenport paints and so she just evolved. Kaitlin Paltridge's beautiful face stamp was a perfect starting point!
The board measures 8.1/2" square and is good strong board so it took a lot of product.
I planned where I wanted to have her face and stamped it using stamp #129 by Kaitlin Paltridge for AALL & Create, the stamp is called 'Edge'.
I used watercolour paints to colour in her face, pencilled in her hair and then covered the parts of her face that I wanted to hide with a little gesso.
I did the hair next, using several colours of acrylic paint and then gave it a wash with watercolour paint. I used a black fine liner pen to scribble on the hair to give it some movement.
Next, I used watercolour paint, spreading it quite randomly over the background and then used Stencil #79 (Sputnik) by Olga Heldwein over the background, lifting some of the paint off with a wet paper towel.
I don't have an 'in process' picture but I covered the face and hair and then stamped over the whole piece with stamp #119 (Print by Numbers) by Tracy Evans. I felt it needed the boldness of the black to tone down the hair colour somewhat.
I stamped and coloured two flowers from Tracy's stamp set and added these to her hair. I also stamped the sentiment from stamp #54 (Strings 'n' Scripts) by Bipasha BK.
Finally, I added some splatters of white acrylic paint.
You can find worldwide stockists for the stamps and stencils I used HERE.
Thanks so much for your visit, I hope to see you again soon.
Hugs, Anne xx
