Mixed media girls from my art journal

Mixed media girl from my art journal1

It's been a while since I last shared my mixed media girls from my art journal. As you can tell, I like to do my backgrounds first before drawing in my girls. 

Here, the background was created with mists and a leaf stencil from The Crafter's Workshop. Her hair was painted with Liquitex transparent burnt umber ink and texturized with Prismacolor pencil. Her face was painted with Daler Rowney acrylic paints, Posca paint markers, Faber Castell gelatos and Rembrandt soft pastels.

On this girl, the background was created with The Crafter's Workshop stencils and mists (a mix of brands)...the gold splatters are Finetec pearl watercolors (current obsession). The girl was drawn with Rembrandt soft pastels and Faber Castell pastel pencils. The black spots on her face appeared when I sprayed my fixative...apparently that requires skill which I currently do not possess...*LOL*

Happy week ahead friends!

Sensational and wholly jealous of your ability to make random bg's into beautiful girls!!! And the spots make her look natural, I reckon!!
