DAY #262 – WALLPAPERER

#262- WALLPAPERER (2)

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…
