Book of Mirrors Lesson 7

After staring at blank paper for a couple of days, I was finally able to start my BOM for Lesson 7.  Once I got started, I just kept going  🙂  I sketched and erased, and sketched and erased.  Then when her face was sort of what I wanted I started painting.  I used inexpensive craft acrylic paints, and just as inexpensive colored pencils.  Her hair is acrylic paints and a gold Sharpie pen.  I hope you like her!

The background is Caran d’Ache neoncolor II crayons applied with Liquitex Glazing Medium, stencils, acrylic paints, and stamps.

This is the completed spread.

I didn’t accomplish much else today.  Took the day and just enjoyed creating!  🙂  Tomorrow I will tackle  what Effy called “the ugly face”. 

Did you smile today?
