New Challenge at Country View Crafts

Hello to you all, today sees the start of the new challenge over on the blog, and this months theme is Things with Wings. Interpret it anyway you want, but make sure you follow the rules. All entries are in with a chance of winning £20 to spend in the shop. So hop on over to Country View Crafts to see all the inspiration the team have created for you, you will be blown away by all the fabulous males.

My inspiration is a journal page.

Here's how I created her.

I gathered several Stencils and laid them on my page

I picked several complimentary colours from Dina Wakley minis 

I used lots of layers building the texture

Once it was completely dry I started the faerie 

White acrylic then My Prima water soluble Pencils (skin tones)

More layers defining features 

More details 

Tidying her up! I can get very messy and have to try very hard to keep things clean and bright. I also gave her some clothes.

I then finished her off. A great tip! once completely dry use a very watery mix of flesh tones 
and gentle smooth it over areas on your face you want to clean and  smooth out. 
Finishing touches to details with a black pen, I also used Prima Water Soluble crayons in white for highlights, 
they are very smooth and creamy and gave her a lovely complexion. Then she done!

Take care everyone
