I started by gathering some favorite collaging papers from my stash. I picked a combination where the colors worked well together.
I chose a page from my art journal that I had been using as a scratch paper. I check my pens, wipe off excess paints, etc. onto this page.
Next, I tore up pieces from my collage stash and started willy-nilly applying them onto my art journal. I used Matte Medium to adhere the collage papers.
This is the result of collaging my papers down to my page.
Then, I sketched a girl out onto my page with a permanent black pen. There are pros and cons for using a permanent pen. Pro-it won't bleed when you put any wet media on it. Con....
Con...once you put it on your paper, it's permanent...mistakes and all. After the sketch was finished I painted to background with Gesso. I used a bamboo paint brush and dipped in into Colorations.
Then, I sprinkled the Colorations by tapping above my page.
I used Cayman Keys Sorbet and Tink Sorbet to paint in the hair. So, pretty!
This is the first time I tried this. I used nail polish remover to remove unwanted sketch lines I made with the black permanent pen. It worked pretty good!
I mixed some Siesta Key Colorations and Barbie Colorations with some neutral colored paints to paint the face.
I used a Stabilo Pencil to draw in hair strands to show off her wavy hair.
Here's a close-up of the completed face. I used a White Signo Pen to draw in highlights.
Finally, I used a brush tip pen to write in the title of my page.
I doodled around some important images that showed up my the hair.
