29 faces Day 25

Another  face  from  the  past--
 
 
 
She's  one  of  my  first  faces  that  I  ever  painted--it  was  3  years  ago--my  style  has  changed,  but  she's  still  one  of  my  favorites--my  first  Hippie  girl.
 
I  recycled  her  into  a  frame  and  matt--

 
 When  I  do  this,  I  print  out  the  image  on  to  a  heavy  cardstock,  and  then  I  put  a  layer  of  Golden's  matte  medium  over  it  which  creates  a  barrier.  That  way  I  can  add  bits  of  color  to  it  without  the color soaking  into  the  paper so  if  you  make  a  mistake,  you  can  easily  fix it.  The   print  was  a  bit  washed  out,  so  I  just  added  more  color  to it,  and  then  I  made  the  fun  'Hippie' matt to  go  with  her.

And  to  see  more--go  HERE--only  4  more  days  left!

PS Did you know you have to fill in a word verification if you leave a comment on your blog, which is very annoying. You can chance that very easy, but perhaps you do it with a reason??
