Ok. Not really. I made faux wallpaper for my painting though!
First I had to design and cut out a custom stamp. This is a nod to the Indian Pomegranate motif. I love how the positive and negative spaces of this shape fit so nicely. It’s great for wallpaper!
I also made two leaf stamps as well…I didn’t get to apply them today though.
I also started to add some pattern to the dress today. I plan on covering everything with pattern, so it’s going to take a little bit longer….
I also finished up all the hands today as well.
Here’s a picture of newspaper I cut to cover a particular area before I begin stamping. This way part of the stamp prints onto the newspaper giving the illusion the wallpaper is behind the woman. I rip and tear tons of little pieces of newspaper throughout the entire process. There is always some area that needs temporary protection.
This is my painting of a multi-tasking mom as of today…
Well, at least my cat’s enjoying it!
