Mixed Media Face

Hello, friends!
I am back today with a quick post. This mixed media face I created for my lovely crafty friend Nika ( Nika in Wonderland) whose brilliant art work inspires me all the time! I encourage you to visit her blog and her You Tube channel for a great inspiration! 


To create this piece I used my Faber Castell Pitt Artist pastel pencils and Stabilo Carbothello pencils, as well as my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors. I also used two dies from Tim Holtz - Layered Leaf and Tattered Leaves along with the matching embossing folders to add some texture. The leaves were colored with my Lindy's sprays and some Distress ink sprays. I applied some Inka gold on the leaves. The quote was stamped using my Archival ink in black. 

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving sweet comments! 

Hugs! Branka x
