Woman in Red (Mixed Media)

I am loving this technique and will branch out into other pictures after the holidays. I do love making dresses though! This one I placed on a background that I made for my art journal out of music sheets and acrylics. I love drawing the girls and their dresses, but this one I traced from a picture of a woman in a 50’s style dress. I then cut out the tracing and pasted it to my journal with ModPodge. The dress is made of pages from an old paperback novel (Ayn Rand…I have about 8 copies of the book, The Fountainhead, from when I was teaching high school). I colored the pages with Neocolor crayons and then lightly washed them. The rest is acrylic and ink.
