This is my 2nd picture for the song challenge over at the Craft Barn blog - the idea is to create art incorporating a song title and singer/band, highlighted every 3 weeks (I think) on the blog.
As I have planned to use this challenge to practise drawing people I thought I would use my one and only new die as the focus of the girls love - a pretty bird!
I started off using a piece of card that had brayer 'wipeoff' (not sure that the computer has ever heard those technical terms before, there are a lot of red lines under the words lol) from a gelli-print session - these pieces of colourful card full of interest are proving very valuable, a pre-made background!
I hand-drew the girl and enjoyed painting her with a mixture of paint and Neo-color crayons - her top was cut out of scrap paper and the bird has been coloured blue and embossed with white. I thought it needed some stamping in the background, so I added some purple arrows and butterflies in a colour that wouldn't be too prominent.
...clever thinking to lay the birdie down OVER the hand, hence hiding my failure to draw a decent hand!
Thanks for visiting, Rachel
