Over at Simon Says Stamp they are having a pearls challenge. So I decided to try to incorporate this into my spread. I started out with a gesso and perfect pearls background. I love how the perfect pearls settle in all of the cracks and crevices of the gesso.
Next I drew in my people. I should also say that this is inspired by an Effy Wild Book of Days lesson. It then painted and shaded the figures with acrylic paint, Derwent pencils, and charcoal.
I used images that I thought resembled some of my feelings. I wanted to make them look like globes or orbs that the figures were holding. So I went over them with Glossy Accents. It is hard to see in the picture, but I am very pleased with how they came out.
My last step was to add a few more pearls to the bottom of the figures.
