FINALLY FINISHED!!!

I finally finished my Finnabair style project for the Divas!  Why it took me so long...  most of the Divas used the Lindy's sprays; I found that I didn't like them AT ALL!  What's the sense of using a coloring agent that washed completely off with just a bit of water?!?!
As always ~ click to enlarge...


So I ended up using a bunch of different stuff...

TH Distress stains, Lumiere paints, Glimmer Mists from Tattered Angels, and Deco Art Dazzling Metallics paint (Rich Expresso)
The picture doesn't do it justice ~ doesn't show how rich and deep the edges are, or all the color variations in the center.

I may go back later and add more color to the pearls in the lower left corner (there is more blue there than the pic shows)...

Thanks for looking!

It turned out beautiful! It is so interesting to look at all the little parts. I don't know how you were able to keep her face clear of any paint or sprays!

Beautiful blue - did you cover her face to keep it clear?

I covered her face with masking fluid ~ the kind you use with watercolors. Worked like a charm!!

I agree with the others; a beautiful piece of art and she will add to your sea shore theme in your craft room. Now what is next on your plate?

I love all the texture and color.

It makes me think about one of the phrases Steve uses when he is nearing the end of a painting. He says, "step away from the painting". Sometimes you need to walk away for awhile.

I hope you have a lovely day. It is raining and expected to rain all day long. Yippee! It makes for a happy garden.
