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 Pacific) stamping 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.
A huge thankyou to Clare from all at PaperARtsy HQ. We love this winter girl in her woolly jumper. Your stamps add just the right essence of texture, and the Cherry red paint is perfect for this Scandinavian feel.
