Hey bloggers! Rita Barakat here with some more ideas using
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Mix and Match supplies!
I wanted a very soft water color background for this page.
Because of it is a large surface I opted to use Gelatos™, lightly
drawing on the surface and spreding the color with a wet paitnbrush.
Of course more drawing with your Gelatos™ means more color and
more water gives transparency. I used the lighter color (Buttercream) first
and push the darker color (Cotton Candy) right up, somtimes overlapping
the first color.
The Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils are perfect for small
surfaces and details like the eyes. When I am finished I
go over outlines and eyelashes with a black fine tip
PITT® Artist Pen.
I used Lemon and Metallic Melon Gelatos™ for her hair and lips.
#105 yellow, 147 blue and #108 peach Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils for the eyes.
176 brown for eyebrows. For the skin I mixed a peach and chocolate Gelatos™
with a little acrylic paint.
(I also used a little heavy gel medium to add texture to her hair.)
