Would you believe this gorgeous girl began as a mistake? I started creating something with a yellow background and hated it! I put it aside for a couple of months, almost tearing it up to use as collage paper.
I kept having an image of a Japanese Geisha in my head, caught in self reflection. I wanted to use bright colours and thought back to my picture with the yellow background. Once I started, I knew I had made the right decision. She came out better than I had imagined.
I always use this painting as an example to back up my motto:
"There are no mistakes in art, only happy surprises"
Of course I had to add some texture with her gold hair clip and paper flower details threaded with gold string. The paper background is handmade using gelli printing. Other materials include washi tape, acrylic paint, posca pens, pencil and watercolour crayons.

This artwork is sent out in an Ikea frame with perspex "glass".
If you want to prolong the life of this beautiful girl, it is advised to have her professionally framed with museum grade glass so that she doesn't fade.
If that is not your thing, keep her as is and hang her with pride.
