I stepped out of my box a bit this weekend to create this 8 x 10 canvas--it features Alicia's Funky Doll from I Brake For Stamps. It's a different look for me--different from the soft florals and cutesy princess girls. It's edgy......I think. I like it!
I started with a seafoam painted canvas, adding more color with gelatos and my PITT Big Brush pens. I stenciled the scrolling black flourish using paint and an old stencil from Stampin Up!
My funky doll was stamped onto gesso covered designer paper and trimmed. Using super tiny brads, I put the doll together. Normally, I modge podge images to my canvas' but this one I wanted to keep kinetic--only the torso is tightly secured to the canvas. The doll face was stamped onto a piece of gesso covered book page and pieced together. I added a bit of color to the face using distress markers.
To finish things off, I added a few more details with Grunge Flowers like this and this. And, Grunge Backgrounds.
My sentiment, stamped on piece of golden colored designer paper, is AWESOME and can be found at Unity Stamp Co.
