Fairy Of The Secret Garden

Well here is another collage and oh my gosh she was a difficult one.The background took me ages as I stuffed it up.See I stamped with white gesso onto my green coloured Vilene and tissue base and then I did a wash of Golden Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold.Then without thinking I grabbed the Golden Dioxazine Paurple and did a wash...now these colours on a green base do NOT work LOL.Anyway I blotted off a lot but the stamping sort of got quite lost....sssooo I stamped again.Then I did washes of Golden Nikel Azo Gold,Golden Phthalo Green and Green Gold.

I rubbed in some Crayola Portfolio series water soluble oil pastel colours here and there,section of Cuttlebug texture paste at the right,painted gauze and German scrap at the bottom.I was happy with all of that but then got stumped again .The fairy was gazing up and to the left and I just couldn't find something that I wanted to put where she was looking.After looking and trying all sorts of things and several hours later I gave up and went to bed.Within minutes of waking this AM I remember the "Le Jardin" page pebble I had in my stash and used that.At last it all came together.

This looks just great Annette! See how versatile that little scroll off-cut from the cuttlebug can be!!! Even though you can use it over and over again on canvases, it looks different with all the changes in imagery and colours! Way to go!!!

Hi Annette,
It's wonderful to see your blog. The collage is lovely--the colors together muted beautifully and the texture looks delicious.
