Be okay with where you are even if you know you want to change.
I made a little canvas. It's 4x6 and I love how adorable the size is.
You really have to think and rein yourself in because at that size, every little thing counts. This was a great opportunity to use high impact products like dimensional paste. I mixed mine with some iridescent medium and it has a silvery raised look.
Did you know you can press pastes, or mist, through border punched card stock for a fantastic effect? That's what I did here on the left hand side. It's a great way to add dimension and stretch the use of your punches.
Her dress and arm placement was really fun. I wanted to give the impression on a hand holding her dress. For the design, I originally traced a figure from a bridal magazine. (FYI: Bridal mags are INCREDIBLE resources if you're interested in figures wearing dresses.)
But those girls were so skinny I wanted to make them all a sandwich. So I redrew her noticeably curvier... and she's still pretty lean. Man, models are so bobble-headed nowadays. Poor girls need to eat a bit.
Thanks so much for stopping by :-)
