This is my first attempt at a mixed media canvas, something that is totally inspired by Gabrielle Pollacco. I watched her video tutorial and she made it look so easy that I just had to give it a try. She even included a sketch and template for the paper doll that she created. Here is the address for the tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPmNxwrk8LI
I didn't have any of the DA chipboard that she used, so I cut a branch using my Silhouette to create a similar effect. Using these paper dolls is a great way to use up scraps and the results are just amazing.
If you have not had a chance to check out Gabi's work, you definitely need to. The lady is crazy talented....not only that, but she generously shares all her tips and secrets! I have learned a lot from her. Check out her blog here by copying and pasting the address into your address bar:
