I found this little cut out's home.
The background started with one of Caspiana's soul journal prompts. I had already pasted down pages from a dictionary, then gessoed. After that I did some doodling with crayon and an acrylic wash over the top. I really like the way that turned out. It ended up more subtle than I thought it would.
I drew the girl while babysitting the girls next door. I finished her up and cut her out. After gluing her down I added the tissue paper skirt. She just seemed to want a hare friend so I brought him bouncing in. I added some twirly bits with gold pen.
My husband finds the see through skirt disturbing. He thinks it contrasts with her air of innocence. I made it transparent because I wanted you to see her 'thunder thighs'.
