Here is my Project for the Challenge
I picked the green's, pinks and white from the Picture and decided to use my Distress Inks as watercolours
I used some of the Mixed Media Templates to create my Portrait. 'Mini Portrait - Wavy Bunches'
'Mini Portrait Face - Head & Torso' - I drew through the templates using a pencil in case of any errors and to be able to rub out where necessary, I lined up the head angled to the side. I then stamped the eyes, nose and mouth using light grey ink and the 'Female Face Mini Stamp Set'. Once I was happy with all the features I then drew over all the lines using a waterproof Pigma Micron fine pen.
I watercoloured her skin using 'Tattered Rose', 'Spun Sugar' and 'Victorian Velvet' Distress Inks. I layered the colours over each other to create shading and definition.
I painted the background using 'Spun Sugar', 'Worn Lipstick' and 'Stormy Sky' Distress Inks. I inked through one of the Mixed Media Stencils - 'Polka Dot's 2.5mm' with Stormy Sky Distress Ink and blending foam to create the PopArt Dots style
Her hair I painted using 'Peeled Paint' and 'Black Soot' distress inks, layering up and feathering to create the strands and shading effects
I framed my Portrait into a pretty white frame ive had sitting empty for a while
