I took one of those ugly old used boards and re-purposed it to make a pretty glamour girl. Some of the ArtTrader team are taking part in the 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge and she was my Day 3 painting. This is what scrap art parts are for!
We'll be adding Walk-Throughs to the blog every now and then, just because they're fun to see. I love looking at people's art progress pics and seeing how they went from A to B. It can be enlightening and I often pick up tips, especially with mixed media pieces.
Here are my WIPs of the painting portion of this art piece. At top left is the face I wanted to paint and at the middle, top row is the ugly old scrap board I started with. The only thing I liked was the color so I used a bit more of my Golden brand Teal to cover things up. The flowers in the last painting are made from scrapbooking paper with a bit of red paint and gel pen over top. I ended up liking the resulting painting and stuck it in my Etsy shop. Yay for scraps!
