I decided that I was going to re-create my “Singing Lady” so that I could frame it. The first time I created her was in my Dylusions journal. This time I created her on mixed media paper:
This version has some differences. For me it’s almost impossible to recreate something exactly as the original version. I used lots of stencils and paint to built up the background layers. Absolutely LOVED how it turned out:
In my original version, I had her holding up her arm, this time I went for the easy technique of having her arms behind her. And because the scale is a bit smaller than in my 2 page journal spread, it was a bit more difficult to paint her features.
Overall I love how this version turned out. Now I just need to frame her!
Here is the “original” version: (blog post here)
I just realized that I created this journal spread almost a year ago – 4/17/14. Doesn’t seem like it’s been that long. And here is the “frame able” version again:
Love both versions and love that each is a bit different. That’s it for me today. Expecting strong storms this afternoon. Hope everyone stays safe. Until next time……
