4th Canvas Finished which makes a Complete Set :)

Morning Folks, I spent yesterday making my 4th Whimsy Girl Canvas as I felt one more would complete the set. :) No doubt I will make more some time in the future as they are fun to do and each Girl looks to have a different personality. 

So the Canvas started out here, Drawing my Girl on to lined paper as I find it helps with my proportion sizing. Then Tracing her on to Card and out lining her with my Black Glaze Sukura Pen. This took me an hour too do. 

Next up is the Colouring, let me tell you it is a challenge to find the colours I want to use  as I have the complete collection of Promarkers including the limited edition ones and I keep them all in a large shoe box so searching through them all can take a while. 

 

And here is my Whimsy Girl all coloured up, the actual colouring took  me an hour and a half.


I then gather my chosen papers which happened to be both sides of  Echo Park's  papers called Sunshine and  Big Dots from the Splash Collection. I went round the circles with a Black Sukura Pen and gave false stitching and drew a line down each strip to make the paper strips stand out more. And I used Kaisercraft Black Paint for the edges and to do her eyes. Then used White Kaisercraft Paint for the White dot in the eye. 




For the Sides I used the Zig Zag side of the Big Dots paper and then the Black and White Zig Zag  paper called Sailing  from Three Bugs in a Rug's Under The Sea Collection. 


And after a total of 5 1/2 hours, here is my completed Canvas and so worth it.

And here are all four Canvas's together. 

So that's it from me for the moment, thank you for stopping by and if anybody fancies having a go at making their own Whimsy Girl Canvas why don't you check out Megan's Blog, this link will take you straight to her sign up Workshop Page
