Since it was cold, rainy and snowy, I couldn't work in the yard. That meant, time in the craft room. Yeah! I had an idea a while ago and was able to put it all together today.
I started by collaging the background with the intent of making it look like a pond. I used Tim Holtz Crazing medium. I applied it using my finger because I saw a video where it seemed to craze better that way. The brush marks seem to cause the medium to craze less. I had to wait a long time for it to dry and wasn't very patient about it, BUT, it was worth it because it did "Craze" and added nice texture to the background.
I took two pictures. This one with a flash, which ended up getting washed out.
And this one that is slightly blurry but you can see the true colors better.
......in the pad, I had the idea for this page. The rest is History. I used water color pencils to colorize the little girl and I cut out wild flowers using Tim Holtz Wild Flowers die. I added Stickles to the flowers, glued everything in place and shaded using Pitt Big Brush pens.
This is "almost" finished, without a flash.
With a flash.
Then I decided to add a dragonfly (Tim Holtz Dragonfly Die) to the picture.
This makes me giggle when I look at it.
