sketch art

Here is the painted collage I made after accepting Sharons challenge last friday. She said to take an old sketch and finish it. I wish I had taken a before photo because she doesn't look anything like she did on the previous start. She had big bangs and pink hair. So she traded the hair for a hat....somedays I feel like doing that. I know her head is not in proportion with the rest of her body but we have BIG heads in our family. (That is why I can't hide bad hair with a hat....I can't find a cute one to fit this head.)



I cut her out and collaged her onto a canvas that I covered with ripped and inked pages from the books I found at the flea market last weekend. Added a few stamped images here and there.



To finish it all off I added beeswax and a flower on her hat. I like her and think her name should be Bella. Now I think I will pop over to Sharons and see if she and Norah have anything cooked up for this weekend.


Have a fun extended weekend!!

Suzi Suzi Suzi, this is fabulous. I love that you let your muse take over and do her thing instead of you original expectation. It is wonderful. And that was really what the challenge was all about. I'm still on the "big project" which I will finish this weekend/week.

She is wonderful, love her eyes.
It feels good to be back to commenting after such a long time...it does have it's problems though...as many of you have been so diligent in posting so I have to read a lot of posts to keep up with what has been going on.

I love this collage! Before I had even read what you wrote about, I thought the hat was my favortie part of it! Funny how things change as we work on them, isn't it?

By the way...

I've been tagged for the very first time, and I was double tagged at that! (see my blog for details).

Tag! You're it!
