She Art Girls - the artist

I will admit to being an online class addict - they are feeding my brain and stretching me creatively in ways I wouldn't have thought.  I have been playing with inspiration from another Christy Tomlinson class - She Art and I have quite a few girls to introduce to you.  I like how her girls don't have faces - it leaves them essentially a blank slate for you to create a personality for them.  So with that in mind, I'll share a tiny story with each of my girls that I'll share with you over the next few weeks.

Christened Florence by her parents, she went by Flo.  Her signature flower tucked in her hair, she firmly believed everything was better with flowers.  She maintained an ever-lengthening list of hobbies always wanting to try something new.  Never liking to be stifled and fenced in, she needed room to grow.

This close up shows some of the background built up by layers of tissue paper, acrylic paint, gesso, paint stamping, ink stamping, and doodling with black and white pens.  So much messy fun :-)

It looks wonderful 'messy fun' Penny.
I have a problem with girls with no faces, but each to their own I say, this is a brilliant piece of work.
