Page 2 "Art Journal Study of Frida"




I have decided to continue on and do a full portrait study of Frida. It may not take up the whole journal but I plan to do a collection of Frida Portraits from some amazing photographs I found of her.
This is a beginning of page 2 in my "Art Journal Study of Frida". I decided to add some text about here inside a few of her facial features.

  4. Rebecca; these are simply amazing! I was really impressed with her life story! I relate to her being in pain all her life and I have thought about how I could create art while resting sometimes. I am doing better though, nothing like her pain I am sure!
    Are you going to leave this one black and white? I love the text on her face. I am starting to put together a "reference journal" with different texturizing ideas, zentangles, all sorts of stuff and I am excited about it!
    I have awarded you an award on my blog just because I thought about how much your blog inspires me. Thank you for your HUGE inspiration m'dear. Hugs.

  11. OMGoodness, she's wonderful ~~ the daisies, peace signs, and words are fabulous details for her, and your addition of the flowers in her hair is the perfect finish. ... but can you resist the temptation to add color, lol? Black and white, or colorful, she's absolutely beautiful, Rebecca!

India

Meet India, she is such a treasure! I made from a tea cup I brought back from India last year. She sits 6 1/2 inches tall. The base she sits on is a beautiful square plate I found in Crate & Barrel that matched the tea cup perfectly. India has been embellished with fabrics I also brought back with me. Her hair is a combination of wool and acrylic fibers and she is jeweled with brass accents. India has henna patterns on the souls of her feet and around the tops of her arms and sits in this peaceful position as she meditates. She's waiting to sit in your home and bring you peace.

Meet Mable, she's trying her best to keep her skin glowing. She believes in nourishing her body from the inside out but once a week a good facial mask and cucumbers on her eyes make all the difference in the world. She stand 8 inches tall and would love to sit on the side of your tub or on your dresser. She could spend hours in the bathroom! * Mable is an original one of a kind decorative Art Doll and not meant to be played with as a toy.
