Beautiful Dreamer by Lynne Moncrieff



Opening up the pack of Mixed Media Tissue Paper, I was immediately drawn to the image of this woman, she certainly has a story to tell when you look at her eyes but they also have a dreamy look, as though she is immersed in her own thoughts of dreams.

Using some underpaper which was covered with Multi-Surface paints and areas of Walnut Ink, with some lovely ring marks made when I laid down the lids from Pearl Ink in Black.

Looking at the tissue paper, I decided to use the smaller image of a woman, using a fine paintbrush dipped into water to ouline the image before tearing away excess paper before adhering to the panel.  Followed by lightly outlining the image with a watersoluble pencil and the A4 Circles Stencil.

There are so many lovely areas of script on the tissue paper, tearing small pieces to adhere around the image and along bottom edge.

When the tissue paper is still pliable, scrunching areas, forming tiny holes to distress the image.

To the upper right corner, another piece of torn text. 

To the panel, dry brushing Gesso.

Onto scrap card, stamping an Affirmation but choosing to only use the words "Beautiful Dreamer".

Adhering to scrap edges of CraftyBoard, curving slightly before adhering below the image of the woman. 

From cotton rag paper, leftover from previous project (coloured with Flat Matte Sprays, Gesso and Texture Paste), cutting a circle.

Layering onto text in upper right corner.

Thank you for taking the time to visit today.
