Now, onto my project. The image I chose for this project was the 1960 Coutoure Hat by Rick St. Dennis (found in his Zibbet store). I loved doing this image. So here it is:
When I started this project, I had somewhat of an idea as to what I wanted to do with her. But with Mixed Media...anything can happen! You can start one way and end up a whole new way. This time, however, for the most part, it ended up being what I intended it to be.

I started off by priming the canvas with Gesso. While that was drying, I cut and colored my image with the Prismacolors. I then set her aside and began putting layers on the canvas using tissue paper and a brown paper that had small slits in it, simply to give it some texture. I mod-podged those on. I dried that with my heat gun and then hot glued some butterflies on in the right side toward the bottom of the canvas. I got out my Gesso again and covered everything with it. After it was dried, I took red and black acrylic paints, watered them down, and splattered bits of paint all over the canvas. I took a rose trim, hot glued that around the edge of the canvas and started to add my embellishments. I made a "hat pin" for the hat and added a big "bling" to the bottom and to the right of Miss Couture, and lastly I added a beautiful black applique fan to the canvas. The applique was made by Kimberly of KPKre8tions

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you will join us in on the challenge this week!
