Nice to See You Art Project

  Scrap Nice to See You 9 Watermarked

Another fun project.  I simply love to create art and to be  challenged to use certain supplies makes the creating all the more fun.  This month the Club Scrap Artist Team  was challenged to use the wonderful Nice to See You kit to make a layout, card or art project.  Well, you know me, mixed media art/painting has got to be a part of the fun.  I love how this piece turned out.  I love all of the different, unique elements of her face.  I had it hanging on the wall when hubby came home.  When he saw it he said, “Wow!  I really like that!”  I do too. I love how she is purposefully, imperfectly made and the proportions are a little off but each element has a it’s own unique feel.  Mmmmmmm.

Here are a few of the steps I took to complete her.

Scrap Nice to See You 4
Stack 4 pieces of patterned paper and cut 4 ovals. then while stacked cut into four pieces. Choose one shape from each pattern to form a full oval.
Scrap Nice to See You 3
adhere to patterned paper, using matte medium (on top and bottom of paper) to form the start of your face.
Scrap Nice to See You 2
Draw in your face elements and hair.
Club Scrap Nice to See You 1
use Nice to See You Eye Stamp to create your eye. Use Big Brush White Marker to add highlights to the eye, as needed.
Scrap Nice to See You 9 Watermarked
use decoart acrylic paint to color hair, inktense pencil for lips, BIG Brush White Marker for doodling, Stabilo all in black to add watercolor shading Stabilo All in White for hightlights. Frame for hanging!

Supplies used: Nice to See You Kit stamps and patterned paper, DecoArt Acrylic Paints, Big Brush Markers, Inktense Pencil, Stabilo All White and Black Pencils.

Here are a few close ups.

Scrap Nice to See You 8
the Nice to See You eye stamp is perfect for this project and adds a nice amount of detail.
