Mixed Media Art Doll: by Trish

Hello!
The theme for this month is my favourite thing, mixed media!
I've created my favourite thing, an Art Doll!
As well as plenty of paints and inks, there are rather a lot of WOW products in there too!
I stamped the body using the dots from the funky border strip set, and embossed them using white powder. The 3D heart is created using the heart mould, with clear and process blue powder. To get the swirly effect, add the blue powder on top of the clear powder, then just leave well alone until completely melted. Stir just once, then pour into the mould. The white inner core of the blue powder is not totally released that way, giving the variations in shade...
The 'love' word comes from the Express yourself stamp set. I stamped it onto tissue paper then added it to the body.
I added a strip of hearts to the base, from the Gratitude set..
 The crown has been triple embossed using primary apple red powder, with a layer of white powder as the second layer. The white breaks through the top layer of red, giving a fab effect....
I painted the crown with blue dots, then added it to the head, giving a nice 3D look..
The head is simply created from a driftwood disc, covered in text paper, then I created a face using paints and pencils.
Hope you like her!

WOW Products used:
Stamps: Express Yourself, Funky Border Strips, Gratitude
Powders: Clear, White, Process Blue, Primary Apple Red

Have a great week!
