Mixed Media Online Class: Faces_Completed


I finished her!!!! I love it - though the finished product isn't what I expected.

Choosing the florals from the napkins I got from Sharon - not EASY!!!! I settled on leaves and a yellow rose. As you can see - the yellow rose got lost in the background .. its VERY muted. I suck at painting roses - so adding paint to bring out the petals was not an option!!LOL Also - I keep looking in the top hand left corner, thinking I should put something up there ... but ... well ... I am going to leave it for now.

On Sharon's videos, she talks about basically trial and error with the napkins and gel transfers...so what you may THINK you are going to get - you don't get!!LOL

I love this and I am so ready to continue on with her online classes...the next series is taking the line drawing we used for this project - and creating THREE more canvases...or in my case ... well..you'll see the surface I use!!LOL

As always, critiques are always welcome.

  3. @Sonia - thank you....and I agree, Sharon's class is a good one.

    @Janie - thank you... the surface is a small wooden purse, but I think a cigar box would work too!!

  4. Oooh this is beautiful, I don't think you need anything in the upper left corner. My personal opinion. Looks like she is looking at "possibility,"
