Fall in Love ... Girl Mixed Media Collage


Step 1
Choose a black and white drawing and tear around image and adhere to A3 watercolour paper. 
Paint in flesh colours using watercolour felt pens and / or flesh colour Gelatos, using your aqua pen for blending. Add black and white pen highlights to hair.
Step 2
Adhere collage papers to background. I have used old dictionary papers and paper napkins. Apply a light coat of gesso over the papers to tone down the patterns and print.


Step 3 and 4
Add stencilled patterns into your background over the top of your papers. Choose the colours you like. Spritz the papers with a light spray of Brown or Sepia coloured Ink. ( I have used Walnut Ink Crystals added to distilled water to make my own  spray)
I had pre - printed some rose stamps in black archival ink onto Gelli Printed papers.
 Cut out around your rose stamp and position onto your collage. Glue with a matt medium.
 Using a filbert brush in Deco art Avocado Acrylic paint , paint in leaves around the roses.

Step 5
Finishing your collage by hot gluing an assemblage of embroidered flowers and leaves onto your work. Use a brown waterproof pen to outline the leaves. Add some pink acrylic paint to shadow areas in the background.
 Choose a stencil to add modelling paste texture to your background. Cut out your words from printed paper and glue into position, outline the paper in the brown pen

Your beautiful girl is now ready to be framed!
