Spread your wings…

This little mixed media beauty was made using several techniques.  

I started by using a brayer to spread the acrylic paints over the background (canvas).  Then whilst the paint was still wet, I used a chopstick to write text into the paint.  I drew the face of my 'Paper Doll Chick' onto paper and used coloured pencils to add the shading.  The hair and body are done with collage papers, both cut and torn.  I also adorned the canvas with some stamped butterflies.  then a layer of tissues paper was put over the complete canvas, this does two jobs.  I use it to 'soften' the overall look of the piece, and it also acts as a good base for further crayon work adding detail.

Finally she was give a protective coat of gloss medium.
