Indian Moon Goddess!!

I completed another online class with Suzi Blu and learned yet another new technique. We did not paint the girl onto the wood...get this...we penciled her on sketchbook paper and then collaged her on the wood. It was so fun to do it that way. We did some painting on the girlie after she was collaged, but most of her face is colored pencil. The other technique I learned was how to dirty up the background to give it a shabby look. I have played around with this in the past, but could never get it quite the way I wanted it, so it was nice to learn an actual technique on how to do it. The workshop was supposed to be a rodeo cowgirl, but I decided to make an Indian girlie instead.
