Mixed Media Fun

Been doing a class over at Suzi Blu, been an absolute blast and I've realised just how much I love painting and mixing techniques.

I managed to do this over a couple of days and not the 5 weeks or so that everyone else worked in, between sick family, kids just being crazy and the million other things I've had going on I just could never find 5 minutes through the weeks to get a start on it.

As for that blue spot on her face, I stuck my girl down without checking to see if my background was dry, sort of soaked up some glimmermist, opps. LOL. didn't want to blend the mark out as I liked the fragile, moody look it ended up giving.

Added so many layers and colours, this started off soooooo bright to begin with and I've blended and adjusted the colours and it's ended up a very moody, nearly dark painting which I'm loving.

So here 'She' is........ I'm stuck for a name any suggestions would be fantastic.










Be warned there will be many more of these to come.

Let me know what you think
