Hello eP friends, I hope you all had a fabulous Easter weekend!
It`s Tracy here today and I am so happy to be sharing a project that comes from the heart.
I am always looking for ways to create something a little bit special for a friend or family member, to let them know I appreciate them and love them for who they are.
Sooooo if you know me then you know how much I loooove creating art on wood . . . oh yes I do indeedy and it just happens to be the theme for this months
be sure and check it out plus all the inspiration from the DT and other entries here.
My project started out as this humble chunk of wood.
A quick pencil sketch and a new love of mine Dylusions Ink Sprayed onto my craft mat and brushed on the background . . . I love how the ink color sings.
For the skin tone I mixed a little Yellow Ochre Pan Pastel with Gesso.
Seriously if you haven`t tried this with your PP`S then you must, once mixed it`s really creamy.
Her hair is a mixture of Black, Neutral Grey, Titanium White Pan Pastels with a littleTim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut Stain thrown in.
At this point I yet again got carried away, I played around adding splats, more Dylusions and a wee bit doodle doodle dooing . . .
A few words to describe the person who will be gifted this using
Dina Wakely`s Mixed Media Stamps . .
She is brave
She is bold
She is fierce
love for others and will always be there for you no matter what!
Can you make out the beautiful glaze, I used a versamark ink pad then sprinkled UTEE and used a heat tool to set.
I did this 3 times for a smooth finish and she was done.
She isn`t perfect but she was created from my heart to let someone know how special they are.
A little reminder that when things are tough just how
Fierce, Bold and Brave
Do you know someone who needs a reminder?
Then grab a few supplies and a chunk of wood and make something special to remind them.
Thank you so much for looking.
Have a great week
Till next time
