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.
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.
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
