I started this piece in class with a very loose background–I love that blue!  It’s one of my favorite colors.  And I love the complimentary accent of the hot pink, I always seem to find a way to put that color in somewhere 🙂

I left the background a little more open and airy than I normally do, I experimented with it to see if I liked leaving a little more resting space for the eyes.  The next step was adding the girl + I collaged in a piece for her dress.

In the spirit of trying new things, I gave her short hair.  She reminded me of my niece who used to sport a cute pixie cut and it just felt right.  A lot of my inspiration for these girls came from my nieces, so I just followed my gut on this one.  Don’t you just love it?

I added in the sentiment and some more accents in her hair, on her dress and collar. (sorry for the blurry phone picture!)

After some more collage and accents, she started to feel finished to me–I love how she came out!
