My process went something like this - I started by printing the image onto a transparency and then with acrylic paint - back painted the details of her face and then her body to make the woman stand out more. Then I collaged a background on watercolor paper with stamped tissue, book pages and paint - then attached the image to the collage. Then I used gesso to paint around the windows and sprinkled glitter on the window frame and 'icicles for some icy shine. These glittery evergreen branches added the finishing touch of a snowy landscape - in my mind.
I so enjoyed playing with the creative process on this project - if you have time go look at the other entries on the Mind Wide Open site! They are amazing! (you can go vote for the one you like best)
Happy Sunday morning everyone!! Thanks so much for the sweet comments you left for Emma about her bird houses in the previous post! She was so excited when I read them to her and told her about the ladies liking her work! It really made my day and her's too!! :)
