girl at gate with bird

Well, another experiment. she is painted with acrylics then
decoupaged with flowers,patterns for her dress, and
a very small yellow bird.
I tried putting crackle and wash on her, and it did not
turn out so well. It was Jo-Sonya crackle, but it crystalized all over the top and is very rough.

Update of Octogon Girl

that is rather a weird name for her, but it works. I didn't change the figure, but experimented with the background. The two white blobs on the side are a foam stamp found at Michaels. It looks like a sprig of greenery; I painted it with white and turquoise, and tried to stamp. one was better than the other, and I was stumped what to do next.
I remembered I had some gold printed fancyt tissue paper from the 99cent store that I tore and decoupaged. I have discovered heavy medium is wonderful for doing collages---forget that stupid ModPoge. One paper was little gold stars with glitter, and the other had gold medallions that I tore apart and placed over the stars. I like how it turned out and will probably seal it and let it be. Let me know what you think of it!
