She Has Faith
This is on a flat 8 x 8 panel that started out as something completely different and evolved into this. Her head is a print on a material I recently ordered. It's called Lutrador and it looks similar to Tyvvek. There is a book out about how to use this type of fabric and I guess I need the book because I am not quite sure what to do with it. It's wasn't expensive. Anyway, I printed just the face on it and it came out quite fuzzy but then I painted over it with Shiva and I really enjoyed the surface. I have also found out that clear gesso helps to strengthen the image so I tried that and it come out a clearer image---but the point here is not to have a clear image or I would use paper. That's what this is along with acrylics, stamps, collage napkins, some brush lettering alpha stamps, and a little metal charm that says faith.
Also the lace on her dress is "rusry lace" from Carol Sloan. She has it for sale in her etsy shop. She is a new blog friend and wonderful artist. The lace doesn't show up that great in the picture but in real life it is fabulous!! Love that rusty lace, Carol! (hint hint)
