Because I really liked the sample/test images I created, I decided to cut them out and find a page in my spiral bound sketchbook to use them onto. I think most of us have those kind of pages that already have colour on them using up squeezed out paints and/or random collage papers with a view to using them as a background at some point! I chose this one...
I liked the idea of having two types of eyes so I used an eyelet and a flower brad. I painted some more Bougainvillea onto some packaging plastic with a view to scraping a mouth but I thought it was too clumsy and looked like she'd had a bad experience with lipstick so quickly discarded that idea!
I teach a range of in-person Mixed Media classes from my workshop in East Sussex UK.
