The first of a series of music challenges at Mixed Media Place.
This song inspired me to create two faces, representing the other person we sometimes need, or are forced to be. I've let loose with my love of pattern using tissue, stamps and rub-ons. I have embossed pattern for texture and used watercolour to soften . The base paper and die-cut doilies are from Finnabair's beautiful 9th Wave Collection. I've also had some fun playing with latex masking fluid (see below ) and "empty" marker pens that you fill yourself with whatever you want.
Check out the Mixed Media Place for materials I used, to be inspired by the DT girls interpretation of this song AND how you can play along with this challenge and win yourself a prize from Finn"s shop.
Patterned applied with tissue, stamps and embossing.
Outline lips with rubber latex masking fluid, then you can add your colour with what ever medium you want, ink, paint stamps, texture etc. with out it going over the edges. This looks kind of gross here...........
Lips and eye lid coloured with a marker pen ( one that comes empty and you fill yourself with any ink or paint you want ) before being stamped.
Masking fluid around outside edge of eye brow first, then add colour, dry, then stamp, dry, then peel off masking fluid.
After stamping with black ink and making sure it's dry, use your finger to rub and roll off the yellow masking fluid. You can see where the stamp has gone "over the lines" of the eye brow shape and onto the masking fluid; when you peel this off, the excess stamped image comes away with the dried masking fluid and you are left with the sharp edge of the eye brow.
