My take on 'Denim Girl'

This is the first of my 'girls'  based on 'Denim Girl' from Julie Nutting's book Collage Couture.  The instructions are simple to follow and very enjoyable - quite different to undertaking online classes.

Size of canvas is 30cm x 40cm or 12" x 16". Julie's book is A4 size, so I photocopied to an A3 size so I could cut the correct size patterns for my canvas.

Instead of a plain red bird, I added a couple of different feathers and a little resin flower

Also added some rub-ons over whole of canvas using 'dream' words and quotes

Building the background

I am really enjoying learning the processes of Julie's 'Fashionable Art'.  Hope to eventually create a girl in my own style and see where that path leads.

PS:  will upload more finished projects during the weekend
