She Only Flew

She Only Flew when no one was Looking is the title of my new Mixed Media Piece I just finished this morning in the wee hours.. 

I finger painted the background. That's my favorite tool - My fingers! LOL  I also finger painted the lollipop flowers... I used Designer Paper and some Old Book Pages on this piece.. My first layer was a Dress Pattern. I put some Glaze Medium into my paints to make them more transparent but I went a little crazy putting too much paint on.I had wanted that first layer to show.. I always do this and tell myself not to. LOL  I just love to get all messy with paint and never know when to stop! ROFL!!

I also used some rubons on this piece.. I use them a lot lately..Santa bought me some Bombay India Ink and boy do I love it!! It stays black and doesn't soak into the last layer of paint like some other inks do. How did I live without it! LOL

This piece is for sale in my Etsy Shop.. and yes Prints will be coming real soon. 

I'm still getting used to my new camera.. This piece looks a lot better in person..

For some reason I'm getting good color but no variations hardly at all of the color.. Like with the Sun I used two shades of yellow but the camera didn't pick it up.
I think I have some setting wrong..

I'm joining Paint Party Friday this week..

Head over there to see some fabulous Artists works..

Hey!! Thanks for stopping by..
