I don't often get long periods of time to create, and when they do come around, it's such a treat to
pull out a piece of mixed media paper and start filling up my tray of paints, stamps, ribbons, laces and whatever inspires me at the moment. Here's a lovely gown with beautiful textures on the coat and skirt. The photo looked so shabby elegant and inspired me to add her to the Exquisite Gown Series. By the way. How many items is considered a collection or series? Is three enough? Hmmm...as long as I'm feeling the inspiration, I'll make a few more. ;)
Before I start to work, I gather all my supplies on a tray and then I work out some techniques, stamps, and tests colors. My intent was to choose the best of what was on the sample page, and then start again on a new piece of paper. In this case, I used my sample page as my background.You can see all the juxtapositions of textures, patterns, stamping and colors. Looks busy, but kind of interesting.
Thanks for looking. I hope you come back to visit the next gown.
