Hello Everyone, Shilpa here,
If you are like me who don’t do sketching… here is the answer for it… We can use Rita’s Fairies stencils. Rita has introduced three different stencils with beautiful Girl’s images.
She sent me this stencil bundle, last week and I couldn’t stop to try it in my art journal, right away….

It all started with drawing face using one of Rita’s stencil in my mixed media art journal. I used regular pencil for this, but Rita suggests, we should use mechanical pencil.. which I think good idea for best results.
Further I joined all lines to create proper face.
I was engrossed so much in the process, I forgot to take pictures, in between. .. but I will explain here how I worked on this page.
After drawing the face, I also added her shoulder and dress.
I drew outline again, with brown watercolor pencil. I applied skin tone oil pastel to the face and neck area. As it is water soluble color, I spread it all over, using waterbrush. Dried it with heat tool. I applied pink color to her lips and green color for her eyes using zig watercolor pens.
Further, on her face, I applied skin tone acrylic paint, dried it completely and I started shadings. I used Design Memory craft big brush pens in pinks and browns at the edges of face, around eyes, below nose and lips etc and smudged with finger… they blended well. I highlighted few spots on the face with white acrylic paint.
For her hair I used Zig watercolor pens in pink and green and blended colors using waterbrush.
For the final touch I outlined everything with black PIIT pen and glued stamped flower in her hair.
For the background, I stamped text and flowers using brown archival ink. Next, I applied Orange, pink and green watercolor paint randomly. Let it dry completely.
For more interest, I applied white acrylic paint through bubble stencil.
and here she is !! Isn’t she gorgeous!!
Rita’s this stencil, is one of the best product, I have tried recently… hope you would like to give a try it too.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
