The East Wind New Release Tuesday

Welcome! Today we have a new release at The East Wind - Lucy Loo 'Hair Heaven'. The moment I saw this I knew I had to do it. The hair is AMAZING and I wanted to colour it so badly! It took me about four hours to complete the entire image. 95% of that time was spent on the hair. I coloured her with Copics using the R30's for her hair, and then went back over the shadows with a black Prismacolor pencil to deepen them up. It was a labour of love, truly.

I spent so much time on her hair, in the end I didn't know what else to do with her. I couldn't dress her up with a bunch of embellishments, so I applied Aged Wine Frantage on black cardstock, then applied Aged Black Frantage on the white around the image. I adhered the image to the black and then used gold glitter cardstock as the base mat. Whether I put her on a card or in a frame remains to be seen. I think she may be one of my most favourite pieces and will end up in a frame in my craft room. I love her so much!
