This is "Red", the sketch was done while waiting at the Dr's office.  I have a blank journaling book I carry around... I scanned the image and printed it onto my Canson XL Mix-Media paper to paint.  Used Acrylics and Sakura Water Color.

Another page done in the magazine I'm painting over, this is "Goldie", and after she was done... I noticed how odd shaped her eye/forehead were... poor girl, LOL.   Used Acrylics, stencils and Sakura Water Colors.

I've been painting over the pages of a magazine that has heavy pages so takes liquid well.  This is the front cover, done in acrylics, Sakura Water colors, Pigment Ink pads with Stamps, embossing powder, and a wee bit of Prisma Color Pencils.  I'm LOVING those Sakura Water Colors, it's the field kit, but has 20 some colors of very strong pigments.

Doll Dreams Aug Challenge to paint a Matryoshka, here's my version of the nesting dolls originally made in Russia.  Used Acrylics, Sakura Water Colors, Sharpie and Prisma Color Pencils.

"Faith, Hope, Love"
Painted on magazine pages with loads of layers... acrylics, stamps, and ink sprays... on the background, then the girl was done in mostly Sakura Water Colors to keep her and her hair a bit transparent so some of the background would show through.  I've been meaning to try this technique for a long time as the look sparked my interest and was fun to do!
