Collage Portrait with a Twist by Debs Wainwright

Hello everyone, Debs here with a fun little creation. I love this stencil but thought I'd give it a little twist.

This is what I did.


1.    I chose the colours I wanted to use, and starting with the darkest, Night, I dabbed the colour onto the left side of the stencil.

2.    I blended the pink into the Night, and then the green up to the pink and blended it slightly.

3.    I removed the stencil and dried it with a heat gun.


4.    Using a black soluble pencil I drew in her eyes and activated the pencil with water to create some shadow. Then added colour to her cheeks.

5.    I edged her eyes with black and added colour to her lips. 


6.    Lastly I added a little hair on her forward. 

What I used
