HERE'S THE PROCESS:
I started this page with a pencil sketch of a face. I went over that with my trusted Papermate Flair pen. I'm working on scrap computer paper. I love that in places you'll be able to see the printed text through the paint.
Here comes my Coloring Book Method again. I simply fill in the spaces with paint--just like you would in a coloring book. I use the surrounding paper to sample the colors and check the paint consistency. It's quite handy actually. I also cut out a shape to be her dress.I LOVE that paper. It's from the inside of an envelope and I've been saving it for a special project and I think it's just perfect as her sassy frock.
I add a few lines with my Micron pens and give her cheeks some color with a colored pencil. I also add a bit of shading on the face with colored pencil. Then I cut out the head.
I get an idea of my page layout. Here I'm using scraps or paper from junk mail, scrapbook paper, a fee schedule from the 1980's I found at work, etc. I just pull out my scrap box and see what speaks to me. None of it is glued down yet. I play around with the layout quite a bit before I actually adhere anything to the page.
I add a bit more paper and washi tape and I soften parts of it with white paint. Then I glue everything in the background down with Mod Podge.
Last, I glue down the figure and add some embellishment with Micron Pens and a date stamp in the bottom left corner. And this page is done!
