SheGirl template and phrases by Christy Tomlinson
This is created on a 6x12 canvas and includes paint, ink, rub-ons, patterned paper, soft gel medium, acrylic ink, dimensional paste, dictionary pages, corrugated, stamps, drywall tape, a CD and I'm sure a ton of other stuff I can't remember right now.
Lots of rub-ons, a stamp and acrylic ink used on this CD.
Acrylic ink mixed into soft gel medium applied with a foam stamp. I'm loving how mixed media is helping me to re-embrace my HUGE collection of foam stamps that haven't seen the light of day for at least a couple, three years.
I love TONS of texture. Drywall tape is my go-to tool right now. Soft gel medium and acrylic ink applied over a drywall tape mask and then inverted and used as a stamp, too.
The scariest part of making a SheGirl...the hair. I started out trying to make this one look like my mom's hair but I couldn't get it blond enough so she's a major dirty blond here. LOL. Paint and ink.
I love how the boots and the grass came out. The boots are made with corrugated. The grass is dimensional paste mixed with paint and combed on. Lots of fun rub-ons. The edges of the entire thing are swiped with Tsukineko Brilliance ink, BTW. Have I mentioned how in love I am with Tsukineko? Luscious, luscious inks!!!!
I went with the floaty, swirly skirt for this girl. Love mixing all the patterns. And rub-ons, stamps and ink, of course.
Hope you enjoyed this as much as I enjoyed making it.
