I have been interested in creating art since the age of 15. I have spent most of my time painting in oils. It has just been recently that I have begun to play with altered art. I have found this to be very addictive.
This is a birthday present I did for my girlfriend. It's the first time I've done an acutal face. I've always done my faces more impression style. After drawing out my woman, I painted the canvas with warm colors of golden yellow and some warm red. I then went on to paint the woman. I cut some leaves out of scrap paper and glued them on. The white pieces on the canvas is melted plastic bags. It adds some texture to the background. The butterflies came next and then I used beeswax to cover the picture. Next came the yarn to outline the hair and face. Lots of fun and overall time to complete was 9 hours. Hope you enjoy your birthday present Pam!!
Round Robin Art Journal It's all about free expression. My want is for other artists to "play" in my book. Be creative and the sky is the limit. I'll be sending this off to 11 more artists. I can't wait to see what my final book will look like.
