Day Of The Dead

I am taking yet another class -the Day of The Dead faces.  Here is my first effort:
She is coloured using Copics.  She started as a sketch but I was looking for something to do and decided to colour her.

The prompt is Cup

Hello,  I am part of a month long facebook page of just plain fun art.  The first prompt for the month is "cup".  And here is my first piece:
I used a copy of a sunflower photo I took and decided to put it on a water coloured mug.  It is hard to see but I used green, yellow and orange for the mug  and soft yellow for the background.  I added the bubbles (but afterwards wish I had made steam instead) and to soften them,  I lightly gessoed over them.  I printed the sentiment on white paper and then modpodged them on.  The sunflower is printed from a photo, cut out and then mod podged on as well.

Gypsy 101

I have been taking yet another class - this one from Tam Laporte.  This is her Summer Gypsy class and it is great fun.
She is a mixed media piece done on water colour paper.  The paint is mainly water colour crayons with some Crayola water colours as well.  There is some collage on the background and I used gesso to soften it down.  I drew her using graphite pencil and used the pencil for shading her face.  The gold earrings are gold sharpie pen. 
I am really happy with how she turned our although next time I might disguise the collage a bit more.
Hope you like her!
