christy-inside-outHere’s another project from Christy.

“This large portrait of a young girl was created with pages from a discarded book purchased from a thrift shop.

Metallic Rub-Ons made the face a real fleshy color.  The hair was painted with acrylic paint using various shades to accomplish texture and shape.  The butterfly was handmade (using the same technique in the Fly with all your Heart journal page) and adhered to make an adorable hair barrette. Stamp the window image, cut it out and adhere for “eyes”.

The different perspective stamp was stamped first on the window image and then again on another sheet of paper, cut out and adhered with a foam square for depth.  The other window eye was sketched with written text remaining inside the eye shape.  Lime green paint created the perfect boarder the dark hair.  I was super happy with the final layout and found the simplicity to actually create an intriguing complexity.”

Here’s a detail view of her “eyes”:


Love it Christy!
