GD: Clare Lloyd #2 Winter Journal Girl

Hello Clare, back tonight with one of my girls! This time she is wrapped up warm for the winter. 

Simply start by building up a background pattern onto Smoothy card using archival ink and stamps from Eclectica Clare Lloyd 02 set.


Then add some colour and pattern using a Mini Mayan Calendar stencil, Cherry Red and Lake Wanaka paint.


I am trying to make a textured knitted jumper look so also added a third colour (South Pacificstamping more images from Eclectica Clare Lloyd 02 set


Now time for my girl drawing in pencil and then finalizing shape/detail drawing in pen.


Painting and shading the face using Vintage Lace, Caramel, Chocolate Pudding, a touch more South Pacific and Cherry Red. Then I painted the jumper and hat using the same colour scheme. You will also noticed I added a bit of stamping to my festive woolly jumper.


To add a final festive touch I added White Puff paint onto the hat and used a sentiment from my Eclectica Clare Lloyd 02 stamp set.


I will be back again tomorrow with my final project for 2014. 
Clare.

What a fantastic girl for thus season. Love the blue and red colour scheme, very festive but not in a staid traditional sense. The knitted/Scandinavian style is just perfect as is the finishing touch of the white puff paint x
