imagine

Hi There
It's my turn on the blog today for Bizzy Becs!
 I would like to share with you a mixed media project.







The background has been layered with stamping and texture paste, using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Die 'mixed media' as a stencil.
I have used several colours of acrylic paints as well as a metallic gold to compliment the textures.

The Poppies have been stamped out on super thin paper, coloured with Copic alcohol markers.
 I have then cut them out and collaged them down. 
The face is drawn using acrylic paint, gesso and Prismacolor pencils.

I have used Nuvo crystal drops in Ebony Black to add dimension to the poppy stamens.



Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Background Stamp: Circles
Indigo blue Stamp: Limor Circles
Indigo Blue Stamp: Ickle Poppies
Memory Box Die: Sketchbook Imagine
Sizzix Thinletts Die: Mixed Media

You can get all of these supplies from Bizzy Becs and you still have a few
