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 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 ...'ll see the surface I use!!LOL

As always, critiques are always welcome.


  1. Ooo, like that you've painted on a case. It looks lovely, you've done a great job.
    Love Sharon's class too :)

  2. what a great idea to paint on a cigar box (?) did a great job...I have to borrow your box idea...i have a load of them....

  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,"

  5. this is beautiful KayTee!!! Great job

  6. It's awesome! I am planning on joining in on a class too!
